This is Your Wake Up Call!

The Lenten Journey 2015 – Leap Of Faith

LW“The Lord is they keeper: the Lord is thy shade upon thy right hand. The sun shall not spite thee by day, nor the moon by night. The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul. The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.” Psalm 121:5-8

Last year I had an overwhelming urge to do something to help me overcome some fears. I don’t know where the desire came from but I knew it was time for me to take a leap of faith. At first I thought I was trying to conquer a fear of heights and the feeling of dropping like on a roller coaster. After really seeking what it was I was trying to overcome, I discovered it was a fear of not having control.

It was a scary climb up the pole to get to where I was going to jump from. The higher I got the more fearful I became. I remember having my earphones in and “I Give Myself Away” was playing. As I got to the top, I began questioning myself. What was I doing? I couldn’t go through with it. I was terrified. Yet something in me was compelling me to do it. I got the harness on and was given the okay to take the leap. I counted to three, I closed my eyes and I took the jump. Was I scared? Yes. Am I glad I did it anyway? I am most definitely. What did I do? Zip lining.

I don’t know about you, but a lot of my fears have to do with the very thing I seek God for. I desire God’s will to be done in my life. I want God to be in control of my future. I pray for God to be my keeper. Even though I ask God for these things, I sometimes allow fear to prevent me from taking the leap of faith into what God is leading me to.

Taking a leap of faith entrusts our unknown future into God’s hands. Trusting God takes endurance. Believing God to be a keeper of His word, to keep and preserve us can sometimes be more than a notion but it’s possible. Taking a leap of faith requires courage. Living in faith doesn’t mean we won’t have fear, but we must trust God to be greater than our fear. God wants to remind us of His divine protection.

I encourage you today to take a leap of faith. God may be asking you to do some things right now, which don’t make sense but do it anyway. Take the leap, God’s got you and God will not let you fall.
