Take One Step

Just one.

But make sure that it is a step of faith.

You will never feel more alive than when you take a step of faith.

When you make the call,
Say the words,
Reach out,
Run ahead,
Or slow down.

You do it before you see results,
without assurance of success,
and not knowing where it will take you.

It is a step of faith.

“In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.”

James‬ ‭2‬:‭17‬ NIV

The reverse is true as well- every time you let an opportunity pass to put your faith into action, it dies a little bit.

If you are reading this, you are not dead. Neither is your faith.
Put it into action.

How is your faith?

What step of obedience do you need to take today?

Prayer Doesn’t Change You

Prayer does not change you, God changes you.

Prayer connects you to God.

He renews your mind.
He heals your heart.
He transforms your life.

Jesus said the when you pray, it should have this flavor:

“your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.”
‭‭Matthew‬ ‭6:10‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Too often our prayers are filled with the flavor of “My kingdom come, my will be done” but when I lay down my lists, my limited experience of possibilities and my imagined desired future, I am able to embrace God’s heart, His unlimited experience of possibilities and His desired future for my life.

Flavor your prayer with the perspective of “Your kingdom come, Your will be done.”

God’s will in your relationships.

God’s way in your heart.

God’s perspective for your future.

God’s redemptive power for your past.

When you spend all your prayer time telling God what your will is and how you want things, He hears you.  He listens but you are missing the power of prayer.

The real power of prayer is when you plug into God and allow Him to transform your life through His power.

Prayer doesn’t change you- God changes you through prayer.
