Thought For Today: “Look at the First Step”
When stepping out by faith we need to look at the first step only, instead of the entire journey.
Abraham didn’t know the whole journey, he only knew the first step, “Get out of your country, from your family and from your father’s house to a land that I will show you.” (Genesis 12:1)
If Abraham worried about everything that could have gone wrong, then he may never have left. We worry a lot about the unknown. It’s easy to do. But if we’re not careful we can hurt ourselves on this journey of faith.
To understand, think about why we call a child who is starting to walk a “Toddler.” They toddle. They take short wobbly steps, and each step is deliberate. But, when they try to take several steps in a row, they flop on their bum.
That’s what stepping out by faith is like. If we try to take several steps without focusing on the first step, then we’ll end up on our bum, or worse, flat on our face, which has caused many to become disillusioned and cut short their journey.
So, look at the first step, and then let God give you the next.
One last thing, it doesn’t matter how old we may be. Consider Abraham, he was 75 years old when God called him, so we’re never too old, nor is it ever too late.
