Sometimes the best way to move forward, is to look back

Do you ever feel paralyzed?  You know God has called you to do something, but you just can’t move?  What is this fear?  What is keeping you from trusting God?

I’ve found that in these times, and I believe we see this in the bible, that if you are having trouble moving forward in something, sometimes it’s best to look back.  How has God already acted in your life?  How has God answered your previous prayers?

Every time I sit down to make calls for support raising I go through this.  I don’t want to reach out. I don’t want to call anyone. I don’t want to ask.  Yet, God is truly gracious to give me a wife to remind me of the power of God and how he has acted in my life.  She also reminds me that God has very clearly called me to this.

Therefore I need not fear, only obey in faith.

When I stop and look at what he’s provided already in this wild trip, it’s really quite astonishing.  I stepped out in faith over two years ago from a well paying job as a Naval Officer to pursue ministry and God has provided for my every need since that day.

Why do I doubt so easily?  We see over and over again in the Old Testament God beckoning his people to remember who He is.  Remember who your God is!

God is a good Father.  God is in control.  God does love us, and he wants to show us how much we can trust him…with everything.

Thank you Jesus, for your truth.  Thank you for my wife.

What has God done in your life?
