A Leap of Faith

The African impala is an interesting animal. It can jump ten feet high and a distance of thirty feet. But if it is in a zoo, enclosed within a wall that is three feet high, it will remain there. It will not jump if it cannot see where its feet
will land. Unfortunately, there are many who believe in a god who behaves just like that: they are fenced in by fear and will not take the leap of faith to the freedom that God provides.

God is calling men and women to trust in Him and to become willing to make a complete commitment
to Him. His desire is that we make a reckless abandonment to Him and say, “Lord Jesus,
have Your way with me. I want to be who You want me to be. I want to do what You want me to do. I want to go where You want me to go. And I will do whatever You want me to do no matter what it costs me. I belong to You and that is all that matters.”

Prayer: Father, there are times when my faith is not the size of a mustard seed. It seems small and insignificant. I would ask that You give me the faith that I do not have that I may learn to trust You in all things. May I never allow my faith to fence me in so that I will not attempt great things for You. Help me to believe that all things are possible through You: in Jesus’ name. Amen.
