just a brief post today…
How do you spell faith? R I S K
When your faith outweighs your fear you’re willing to take risks. When your fear outweighs your faith you don’t. Faith is what it means you put one foot out of the boat, step away from your comfort zone and go beyond what you feel ok with.
Some of us are naturally risk averse, some of us are risk controllers (that’s me) and some of us are risk embracers. The important thing about faith and risk is that when we embrace risk- jumping out of the boat, offering to pray for healing, sharing our stories of God etc, that we do it in the knowledge that God has already said ‘I’m with you in this’- that we know something of the promises he’s made.
Today, are you aware of the things that God has promised? Are you willing to put some faith in them? Are you willing to risk something?
