The Lord showed me that many of you have had a Holy Spirit ‘nudge’ recently to step out of the boat and venture into unknown territory. Although you have felt this nudge, doubt and reason has clouded your assurance in what the Holy Spirit has said. You may be feeling wary of pushing the boundaries, stepping out of your comfort zone and entering land that you know nothing of.
The Lord reminds you today, ‘Child, do I not go before you? Have I not gone behind you? And do I not go with you? I am with you every step of the way! I cover your back and prepare your steps, I guard where you’ve been and secure where you’re going! It’s time to step out of the boat and jump into the beautiful journey of faith that I’m calling you to. It’s time to shake of complacency and come out of the place you have been comfortable in. Listen to the nudges I give you, for you have heard me speak and you have seen me move. And now it is time for you to speak and time for you to move.’
Stir up faith in yourself today as you get ready to jump out of your known surroundings into the mystery, beauty and joy of what the Lord has set before you.
“Come”, he said. Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus.
The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.
