“A journey of a thousand miles begins with one step”
And the LORD said to Moses, “Why do you cry to Me? Tell the children of Israel to go forward.
Every new day God bestows fresh mercy and grace for that new day (Lamentations 3:23) which powers you to take a step forward in the direction of your life. This grace is available and is yours and all you have to do literally is put one foot in front of the other today and keep stepping. That is the way you get to any goal, desire or destination.
When the children of Israel came to the edge of the Red Sea and they looked behind the Egyptians were behind them and they froze and came to a dead standstill. God’s word to them was “tell the people of Israel to go forward!” I believe God is saying those same words to you today. He has already made a move on your behalf, whatever you are facing or whatever goals or desires seem insurmountable today just put one foot in front of the other and you will encounter the power of your God. This is faith.
I encourage you in this new year to keep stepping and stepping toward what the Apostle Paul aptly describes “Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that “for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me. Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead,” (Philippians 3:12-13 NKJV)
It is my prayer that as you step out in this new day you walk toward His purposes for your life.
Have a fruitful year
Exodus 14:9, 13-15
