When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they will not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; neither will the flame kindle upon you. (Isaiah 43:2)
Because people tend to fear the unknown, they’re often reluctant to step out in faith and give God full control of their lives. It is as though they feel they might miss-out on something good by letting Him lead the way. But what is there to lose when God wants to do nothing but good things for you? You aren’t being asked to place your trust in a whimsical human being who could care less about you; rather, you’re receiving an invitation to walk with a God who knows everything about you, loves you unconditionally, and gave His only begotten Son for you!
Do you want to see positive changes in your life? If so, it’s not going to happen if you confine yourself to a box. You must enter new territory with God. If you remain hidden in a box of fear, you’ll never experience the fullness of the life God wants to give you in Christ.
Don’t sit on the sidelines watching people make things happen; join them in the effort of making progress. And what I mean by “making progress” is fulfilling God’s plans for you. Remember, there’s no such thing as a happy end outside of God’s will; yet, great joy awaits those who are willing to allow Him to order their steps.
Don’t be afraid of change. You have nothing to fear while knowing an omnipotent God is leading the way. Come out of that box, and experience the joy Jesus wants to usher into your life. It’s time to move away from the darkness and walk in the light. It’s time to live! Come out of that box and experience the sunshine!
