Did you know that you’ve been equipped with all the skills, resources and abilities to make great feats in life? God has placed seeds of greatness on the inside. But in order to make great achievements, you’ll have to take a step of faith.
It doesn’t require a big mighty faith. Your faith doesn’t have to be built on a doctorate degree, years of experience or a huge resume. No, all you need is a little faith… a mustard seed faith- if you will.
God’s Word says that if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you can move mountains. Many times, your blessings are within reach. God is waiting on you to make the first move.
I heard Joel Osteen say, “If you’ll do what you can, God will do what you can’t.” It’s a great principle that resonates with me… to know that God will meet me halfway. If you take a step of faith, God will carry you the rest of the way.
I’ll never forget just a few years ago, one of the conversations I had with a former co-worker. It was almost comical but true at the same time. I’ll never forget a powerful statement he made:
“do you want to move mountains? Sure you can, but first go buy a shovel…”
This statement reminds us that great things happen not when we stand and take no action. No, we can move mountains in our lives when we take small steps of faith and do our part.
Maybe you’ve have a mountain sized addiction that you want to overcome. Step by step, you can overcome it by being intentional in cutting back. Instead of feeding the addiction, find something to replace it. In the mean time, allow God to intervene- to strengthen you… to sustain you… and to carry you through. Little by little, you’ll beat the addiction.
Maybe you have a dream or a goal that you want to meet. Start with a vision. Write it down on paper. The scripture says to write the vision and make it plain. Write how you want to start accomplishing your goal. In due time, you’ll meet your goal. God will complete His good and perfect work in you. Why? Because you’ve been faithful.
When you take steps of faith, something magnificent happens in the supernatural. God responds to your faith. He gives you the strength, courage and power to do even greater things. Be faithful over the few things… or you can buy a shovel. When you do what you can, God will do what you can’t. He’ll then bring you into your great victory, as you charge forth on your journey of life!
