Some years ago, I was introduced to a book titled, “If You Want to Walk on Water, You’ve Got to Get Out of the Boat.”
I’ve heard a lot about leaving our comfort zones and stepping out into new territory.
A different job.
A different school.
Deciding to get married.
Actually speaking up in a meeting.
Actually NOT speaking up in a meeting.
Courage takes form in various ways.
The courage to say hello.
The courage to say goodbye.
The courage to take initiative in areas that are not familiar.
God is at work every day.
To suppose that God would not be open to working in my life as one of His children would be in error.
If you are a child of God, as well, wouldn’t you say that He is open to working in your life?
With each tick of the clock or sweep of the second hand, a new period of time is being experienced.
We can’t know what God will ask us to do in advance.
We can only have the listening ears and willing hearts of a messenger.
If we want to experience what God has for us, sometimes we have to “get out of the boat.”
For God did not give us a Spirit of fear but of power and love and self-control.
–2 Timothy 1:7
