Step out in faith and the path of God will open unto you

I didn't want to make any mistakes, I didn't want to walk a difficult road, I didn't want to have troubles, heartaches and worries , anxieties and any complications. I didn't want to waste any time, for sure!

You know what the Lord revealed to me, a valuable lesson for the rest of my life. The Lord, instead of showing which path I should take, told me a very important principle, which even though was revealed to me 10 years ago, is still relevant to all our daily lives and especially when we want to make decisions at crossroads in our lives.

The Lord said, "Step out and walk , and walk in faith and a Path will open unto you ":teach:. The Lord further revealed to me that just like the Israelites when they crossed the Red Sea, the Red Sea was not opened all the way to the bank on the other side.

The Lord said ," The Red Sea only opens up as they walk out in faith . As they walk out and in faith, the Red Sea begins to open , just a few steps ahead of them. The Red Sea was not opened all the way to the other bank, but only as they walked out in faith, step by step , the path to the other bank will begin to open unto them! €

Martin Luther King Jr says:

€œ"Take the first step in faith. You don't have to see the whole staircase. Just take the first step."

It is in only in our walking out in faith and walking out step by step , that the path of God will open ahead of us , and will be revealed to us, line upon line, percept upon percept. Start walking out in faith step by step, and a path will open unto you! The path of God will definitely open unto you! That is how God leads us , line upon line, percept upon percept. And only if we step out in FAITH.

So, my friends here at CB and all Christians , wherever you are now in your life, if you are at a cross road regarding any decisions that you have to take, be it career, business or relationships or even marriage, step out in faith and walk ,step by step ,do not fear , but trust the leading of our God and the path of God will open unto you.

I quote from Isaiah 43: 1-2 as an assurance from God;

Fear not, for I have redeemed you,

I have summoned you by name; you are mine.

When you pass through the waters,

I will be with you ;

And when you pass through the rivers,

They will not sweep over you.

When you walk through the fire,

You will not be burned;

The flames will not set you ablaze.

For I am the Lord, your God, the Holy One of Israel , your Saviour.
