It Takes Both Faith and Action

Description

To stand by until God makes an obvious way may cause us to delay His blessings. It takes both faith and action to experience God’s best.

"...when the soles of the feet...shall rest in the waters of the Jordan, the waters of the Jordan shall be cut off, and the waters which are flowing down from above shall stand in one heap." - Joshua 3:13

The Promised Land was just on the other side. It had been 40 years and it was so close, yet so far away! A huge obstacle separated the children of Israel from the blessing God had promised. They had been led out of the wilderness and now found themselves on the banks of a swollen Jordan River. The Promised Land was just on the other side. Standing on the bank of the raging river, wringing their hands and praying would not solve their problem. They had to act. (You see, faith requires action.) It was not until they stepped out in faith into the turbulent waters that the river stood on end and the people walked into the Promised Land on dry land.

So it is with our lives. Obstacles separate us from God’s richest blessings. To stand by until God makes an obvious way may cause us to delay His blessings. It takes both faith and action to experience God’s best.

So, grab hold of that faith and go for it as God leads!
