Happy New Year my loves! This is the first motivational post of the year so I wanted to be a word of encouragement, but also something that will motivate you to move and act!
On Sunday my pastor said “We’ve been getting our praise on for so long, now it is time for us to get our faith on.” He gave scripture references from Hebrews 11 saying that God allowed so many great men in the bible to be great, not only by their skills, talents, abilities, education, and character, but mainly by their faith.
Many people, including myself, could be a lot further in life if we acted on faith. Faith is what sets so many people apart. It goes beyond taking a risk, but KNOWING that God wants you to succeed. If what you desire is within His will and you believe and expect that God will do great things in your life, now YOU must do the work. God will provide the right people, places, and opportunities, it is up to you to be able to discern and act on what God has called you to do.
Faith and fear does not mix. You cannot say you have faith if you are fearful of taking the next steps to move forward. If you have dreams and goals that you want to accomplish now is the time to act. Time will not wait for you. Identify what your goals are and make a plan on what you need to do to accomplish those goals and work.
“Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.” Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
