Ask Him To Guide Your Steps

9 Apr

“Father, I am seeking: I am hesitant and uncertain, but will you, O God, watch over each step of mine and guide me.”  ~ St. Augustine

There are many uncertainties in life.  As a matter of fact, almost all of life is uncertain.  We never know what is going to happen, what may come our way, what outcome our intentions will have, et cetera.  There are two choices that we can make: step out in the midst of our uncertainties or withdraw from the world and lock ourselves away out of fear.

Fear and anxiety are not good things.  They deprive us of the opportunity to live fully-realized lives.  They keep us from developing.  They prevent us from doing what God calls us to do.  None of us have to live with fear and anxiety.  We can give our fears and anxieties over to the Lord and ask Him to give us the strength and grace that we need to be able to step out in faith.

We may not like feeling uncertain; but, we do not have to allow uncertainty to cripple us.  Be confident that God will be with you and that He will provide whatever you may need to face the challenges of life head on.  All it takes is movement on our part.  If we take the step in faith, God will bless our endeavor.

FAITH ACTION: Ask God to take away your fears and uncertainties so that you may confidently step out in faith today.
