Joel Osteen Daily Devotionals July 29 2022 Courageous Faith :
Hebrews 11:7, MSG
By faith, Noah built a ship in the middle of dry land. He was warned about something he couldn’t see, and acted on what he was told.
Most of us wouldn’t have any problem with taking a step of faith–starting a business, going back to school, moving to a new location–if we knew where the money was coming from, how long it was going to take, and that the right people were going to be there for us. But here’s the key: God doesn’t give the details. He’s not going to give you a blueprint for your whole life. If you had all the facts on how it’s going to happen, you wouldn’t need any faith. He’s going to send you out not knowing everything. He leads you one step at a time. If you have the courage to step into the unknown and do what you know He’s asking you to do, He’ll show you another step as He did Noah. Doors will open that you could never have opened, the right people will show up, you’ll have the funds and any other resources you need. Step by step, He’ll lead you into your destiny.
Prayer for Today
Father, thank You that You have a blueprint for my life, and that I need not fear the unknown. Thank You for calling me to follow You and Your direction in my life. I ask You to make clear the next step that I should take, and I will take it. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
