Step Out And Find Out

Proverbs 16:9 “A man’s heart deviseth his way: but the Lord directeth his steps.” People often ask me how to find their place in ministry. Some spend many years waiting to hear a voice or to receive supernatural direction. I tell them to step out and find out. Early in my journey with God, I wanted to serve Him. I felt He had placed a call on my life but I didn’t know exactly what to do, so I tried different opportunities that were available. A lot of them didn’t work out for me, but I kept trying different ones until I found an area that fit me. I finally came alive inside when I had an opportunity to share the Word with people. I found joy in teaching, and it was obvious I was good at it. I knew then that I had found my place in ministry. Sometimes the only way to discover God’s will is to practice what I call “stepping out and finding out.” If you have prayed about a situation and don’t seem to know what you should do, take a step of faith. Don’t be afraid of making a mistake. Step out and God will guide you. Prayer Starter: God, I trust You, and I know that You will direct my steps, so I’m not afraid to step out and find out what You have for me.   From Joyce Meyer’s “Promises For Your Everyday Life.”
