Do you know the feeling where you just feel that you're ready to take that next step with God? Right after, you get the feeling of doubt. "What if I take a wrong step?"
Trust me, I know that! Well, first to encourage you; God is faithful and he won't let you down! Even if you do take a wrong step, he'll hold you and show you the way. Maybe you turn around and look back, and see that you've taken a few wrong steps that could have been avoided and time would have been saved. I do and I see that there are few things I would have done differently in my life with God. But sometimes, we need to learn the hard way, sad, but true.
Even if we did take wrong steps and turns in our life with God, He's faithful and will always help us in our situation. Personally, I've been there where I took a some wrong turns and when I think about now, I wonder why I did it. Maybe it was a bunch of little things where I was arrogant and didn't think before I acted. Maybe I forgot to ask my Dad in Heaven. No matter what, I've come to realize that God makes every thing new. Even that wrong step you took.
I'm not encouraging you to take a wrong step on purpose if you know the right path, but I wanna lift you with this message, which is helping me a lot:
It's better to take a wrong step, than to stay secure and not take any steps at all. From wrong steps in our life, we find out that this wasn't the right way. Yes, time does get wasted by stepping wrong, but more time is being wasted if we just sit back and idle and wait for something to happen.
Taking a step is always a risk, but that's why it's called faith. Have faith in God, your Dad, cause' he won't fail you! :)
