Questioning Yourself Going Forth in FAITH or Stupidity this is not about literal sailing unless you're into that of course.
One thing about life it is very uncertain much of the time. We live and walk by faith. Of all things the Lord looks upon and is pleased with is our FAITH in Him. We walk by faith and not by sight. We move, live and breath by faith. Without faith it is impossible to please Him.
Sometimes in life we question whether we are walking and living by faith or stupidity....don't we? We feel we are led all the way up to a thing and then when we are right there question whether it's the Lord or not?
We ask questions of ourselves, am I in sin? is this the Lord? are you sure I should do this or do that Lord? What are we suppose to do just sit down, shut up and do nothing? or go forth in faith.
Today as I live I will go forth in faith and pray to God it pleases the Lord. Remember the story of Esther? She was called of God to do unconventional things. Not only was she called to help deliver the children of Israel from destruction but she was called of God to beautify herself and then spend a night with the King in an unconventional way. Was there a marriage ceremony? I don't recall reading that part. But God had called her into this process. In the end the Jews were saved from destruction. God is not asking us to sin, He is asking us to walk in faith. We have to live by faith outside the box of leaning to our own understanding and "re-li-gion".
Esther obeyed God instead of man. She went forth in faith, confidence and bravery and she was blessed also because of it. If you want the full blessings of the Lord, don't do everything inside the box of religion. God is not in a box and neither are we.
Today...all glory be to God for what you have planned for our lives Lord as we walk by faith and not by sight nor lean to our own understanding. Sail on!
