There is a story about a little boy who woke up in the middle of the night because he smelled smoke. The smoke was in his room and the only thing he could think to do was to climb out his window onto the roof. It was so dark and smoky that as he stood on the roof he could not see anyone but he heard the voice of his father yelling for him to jump. The boy was scared and because he could not see his father, he would not jump. His father kept yelling at him to jump but he was afraid so he yelled back into the darkness that he could not jump because he could not see his father. His father yelled back at him that it didn’t matter because he could see him.
You might not know where God is leading you today but the most important thing for you to remember is that God sees you. You don’t have to know all the details; all you have to do is trust your heavenly Father to catch you and lead you to the destiny that He has for you. We walk by faith and not by sight. This is not always easy but it is sometimes necessary. The challenge is to take the first step and then leave it up to God what happens after that.
God is your provider and He is your protector. God has a plan and He will make sure that all things will work out together for your good. Trust that – believe that. Your journey on this earth is a walk of faith and without faith it is impossible to please God. You will never know all that God has prepared for you if you refuse to live by faith. Listen to that still small voice speaking to you. That voice will show you the path to take and if you listen and obey, you will live in the promises that only the faithful obtain.
