Could you imagine getting in a car to go to an unknown destination without any directions?
That’s what it feels like to walk by faith and not by sight.
We like to know where we’re going, when we’re going to get there, and exactly how we’re going to get there, but God doesn’t work that way.
He doesn’t give us the blueprint.
The only directions we get are:
- Get in the car.
- I will be with you every single step of the way. [Joshua 1:9]
- Trust me to lead the way. [Deuteronomy 31:8]
- Trust that I have good plans for you and that your entire itinerary will be for your good and my glory. [Jeremiah 29:11; Romans 8:28]
This makes it sometimes hard to be obedient to the things God is calling us to do because we want more answers before we take action.
Like yes God, I’ll go once you tell me where you are taking me.
Yes God, I’ll go once you show me exactly how you are going to get me there.
Yes God, I’ll go only if you can guarantee that I’ll have x,y, and z when I get there.
But if you had all the answers before getting on the road….
There would be no need for you to have faith.
There would be no need for you to trust God.
There would be no need for you to rely on God.
So if you’re currently struggling to be obedient to the first step God is calling you to take because you don’t have the full itinerary yet, I encourage you to move from your fear of the unknown and have full faith in God’s plan for you.
Trust Him when He says that He will lead the way and be with you every single step of the way [Deuteronomy 31:8; Joshua 1:9]
Trust Him when He says that He has good plans for you and that your entire itinerary will be for your good and for His glory [Jeremiah 29:11; Romans 8:28]
And remember that faith is “confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.” – Hebrews 11:1
Walking by faith and not by sight is HARD, but that’s why we’re called to do it, so that our faith in God can be strengthened.
