I wouldn’t have wavered if I could have seen what God planned for me when I took my first steps of faith.
I remember sitting in a waiting room for the longest time—writing, editing, pitching, drafting, and waiting to see if my work made any impact and what the fruit would be. I felt a constant push and pull about whether certain things would pay off. I wondered how any of this would come together for my good.
Looking back now, I realize God’s protection and steadfast love were there throughout the process, reminding me not to doubt Him. I had to take some steps of faith—some of which weren’t comfortable—but they were all a part of God’s glorious plan for my life to bring glory to His holy name. Even if I didn’t understand the outcome, reflecting on such things and obeying God’s voice reminded me of God’s goodness and faithfulness to fulfill His promises in due season.
Steps of faith are like that. God calls us to take an action step. We can obey or disobey, but we reap what we choose. Even if we only see a small part of what’s happening, God’s sovereignty helps us trust Him, even if we don’t understand the full scope of His work.
Has God called you to step out in faith while in the waiting room? Are you unsure of the outcome? Trust God through it all and delight in Him.
What are some steps of faith you should take?
