Here’s the thing about taking ‘a leap of faith’. In order for it to qualify as a ‘leap’, there has to be a period of time that you are in a free-fall of some sort or another. That exciting, but often very unnerving span of time between when you left Point A, but haven’t quite reached Point B. That is, assuming you even know where Point B is!
Well, like I shared a few months ago, I recently felt called to take a leap of faith; but in my case it felt less like ‘leaping’ and more like ‘deeping’ (sorry – I couldn’t resist the urge to rhyme!).
Have you ever felt like that? Felt the prompting to leave what was known and comfortable, and instead take a leap? Or heard the Lord inviting you to step off the shorelines of safety trust in Him to elevate you over the depths of the unknown?
And if you have, how did you respond?
Did you leap? Did you deep? Are you still deciding how to respond?
So much has happened since I wrote the post Water Walking. I am still very much “in the deep of faith” stage of things, but I take great comfort in knowing that I am not alone in the deep, and neither are you! Let me say that again … YOU ARE NOT ALONE!
The Lord said to Abram, “Leave your country, your relatives, and your father’s home, and go to a land that I am going to show you. 2 I will give you many descendants, and they will become a great nation. I will bless you and make your name famous, so that you will be a blessing.
Just because we don’t yet see the full manifestation of what we are praying for, we can press on during the ‘water walking’ stage of the journey with confident expectation – knowing that He who called us out into the deep waters of faith will be as faithful to us as He was to Abraham. God will not leave His promise unfulfilled!!
May that truth be as comforting to you as it is to me, and may we both soon make it to the other side of the waters and into our very own ‘promised lands’.
One thought on “Leaping or Deeping, it’s all a test of faith!”
