TAKING A STEP OR MAKING A MOVE
Wherever I went to, thank God I have found my roots and I am back to my blogging. I miss blogging and miss all my readers and I am sure everybody is doing well.
Whiles I was away, there was this thing I learnt about the today's person or christian. Our refusal to take a step. Many at times, we are used to standing at one place or sitting down without moving. The fact that we are Christians does not mean everything will come to us like manna dropping from Heaven. Sure I believe God is still in His miracle doing day and there is nothing too hard for Him to do but WE MUST TAKE A STEP OR MAKE A MOVE.
Hopefully we all remember the parable of the prodigal son. If we have forgotten, please refer to Luke chapter 15 vrs 11 - 32. This is a clear example of what I am taking about. We must move in life. My current state is not the best, your current state is not the best. Be it financial, emotional, family, marriage, education etc I believe you can do better. We should not sit and agree to a situation when things are not going well in life. The prodigal son took a step to go back to the father. Sure maybe the father or brother he left behind will one day go and search for him but when was that going to happen? He decided to take a step, to move to his father's house once more and even at that distance, his father aw him.
One amazing thing was that his father also started walking towards him. That is what I am talking about. When you take a step in life, your helpers also take a step towards you to make things easier. It's natural. Don't sit and think the days will roll by and one day you will surely meet your helper. No. Make a move, let him see you are serious. My pastor usually says "when you make a move, mountains are removed" and it is true. The troubles in life, the things that seems to be impossible are there like that because you have decided not to make a move. Move and they will also move, make a way for you to walk through to your dreams. Remember the Bible says the devil is like a roaring lion. It did not say the devil is a roaring lion. So it means it tries to pretend it is what it is not. The troubles you see are pretenders. They want to see your reaction and when you react positively, they see you as no push overs. That is what I am talking about.
Look at something in the Exodus chapter 14 vrs 15 - 18 when the people of Israel were crossing the red sea. God told Moses " And the LORD said to Moses, "Why do you cry to Me? Tell the children of Israel to go forward...........". Its time you put a hold on talking and make a move. Stop crying to God and make a move. God told them to go forward. Sure He saw the red sea but He told them to go forward and when they did, the red sea also moved. That is the God we serve. Look, your helper is just behind the mountain waiting for you to move. Make a move today, don't sit down at one place for everything is possible with God.
Take a step, make a move and trust God with the rest for when you make a move, the mountains shall be removed.
