Regardless of your faith, this perspective is wise:
“Follow me one step at a time. That is all I require of you. In fact, that is the only way to move through this space/time world. You see huge mountains looming, and you start wondering how you’re going to scale those heights. Meanwhile because you’re not looking where you’re going, you stumble on the easy path where I am leading you now. As I help you get back on your feet, you tell me how worried you are about the cliffs up ahead. But you don’t know what will happen today, much less tomorrow. Our path may take an abrupt turn, leading you away from those mountains. There may be an easier way up the mountains than is visible from this distance. If I do lead you up the cliffs, I will equip you for that strenuous climb…”-Sarah Young
This comes from the February first devotional in Sarah’s book Jesus Calling. Anyone can take the steps in front of them. With faith you know that those steps will lead you where you are supposed to go. That is what I call empowerment.
Go ahead. Take a step.
