Imagine yourself standing on the edge of a cliff, you look down in complete fear as you see no ground in sight. Naturally you turn around to go back but there's an adult sized tiger running hungrily towards you. In a moment like this, you don't have many options& if your smart, you JUMP!
You leap off of that cliff because it's necessary! If you desire to grow more in God this year, leaping will be necessary. No I don't think a tiger will attack you if you don't leap for God, but I do believe the consequences of NOT leaping, may be very similar.
choosing to not leap off that cliff means the tiger will literally destroy you or at the least leave you deeply injured and helpless on the side of a cliff.
choosing not to leap spiritually means the enemy has opportunity to destroy your hope, your belief and leave you doubting that you can DO what God is asking. The longer you stay down, the more you give the enemy access. The more access the enemy has, the more fear you will have!
Scripture says Perfect love casts out fear. This means that those who love God, trust God. If you trust God, then gather your strength and take a leap!! God won't let you fall aimlessly off the cliff, there will be a purpose and there will always be a plan. I have learned in my walk with God that the plan won't sometimes be revealed until you take the leap. Before seeing the results, I trust God and I jump headfirst into what God is pushing me to do.
It's natural to fear what you've never done before, but when you get to the other side, you will wish you had jumped sooner! Taking a leap could be answering a call from God, it could also be stepping out and starting something NEW for God or it could mean starting a new relationship. I don't know where in your life, God is asking you to LEAP, but my friend I'm encouraging you to JUST DO IT!
If your looking for Victory in 2017, you'll have to go beyond the fear, beyond the distractions and Just DO what God says. The benefits of leaping are endless. If your not sure where to start, go to God in prayer right now. Ask him to show you where you need to leap and ask him to lead and direct you.
The 7 Day Challenge is a great (practical) way to leap forward into Knowing God more and drawing closer to him. Are you ready to leap?
