"The Lord said to Moses, 'Why do you cry to Me? Tell the people of Israel to go forward. Lift up your staff, and stretch out your hand over the sea and divide it, that the people of Israel may go through the sea on dry ground.'"

‭‭Exodus‬ ‭14:15-16‬

There is a time for prayer, and there is a time for action. But when we’re following the Lord Jesus, the action is often a step of faith. It amounts to prayer in action, when we step out on thin air, or stretch out our hand over the sea and march into it, expecting God to have a plan that will take us safely through it.

We spend the time in prayer and in God’s Word until we are sure that we are where God wants us to be, doing what God wants us to do, and doing it the way God wants it done. Once we are sure of that, it’s time to move forward, to step out in faith, even if the step we must take seems crazy or unreasonable.

Under those circumstances, the step of faith will be met with a miracle.

Be sure of your leading, then act!

Lord God, we live from miracle to miracle until You call us home. Tune my ears to hear Your voice. Sharpen my eyes to see Your guidance. Keep my heart in Your Word and Your hand on me to guide me. Give me the courage to step out in faith when You call me to do that, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
