When you balance on a pivot like a seesaw you can change your direction by the way you lean. The challenge God gives us is to lean into faith and future. We are called to a life of faith. What does that look like for you? God called Gideon to save a nation when he was hiding in a wine press. He called him a mighty hero when Gideon was so far from feeling like a hero. Gideon chose faith over status quo!
Hebrews 12 from The Message inspires me. ” Do you see what this means, all these pioneers who blazed the way, all those veterans cheering us on? We had better get on with it. Strip down, get running and never quit.
A life of faith takes us way beyond our comfort zone, our resources and our abilities. Take the leap!
