Think of a time when you heard from God, whether it was a promise, a confirmation, or a conviction. What was your immediate response? Did you act on what He said, or did you sit and ponder whether it was really His voice? Maybe you were sure you heard what He said but still hesitated. (Disclaimer: It’s okay—we’ve all done it!)
Luke 2 says that when the angels told the shepherds the Good News about Jesus’ birth, they “hurried off” to find Him. Instead of waiting around and letting doubt creep in, they responded immediately. They didn’t let any of the questions we might have asked in the same situation keep them from quickly responding to God.
When we hesitate with God, we create a breeding ground for doubt, fear, and insecurity—none of which come from Him. Stir your faith today and decide in advance that you’ll move when God’s says to move, no matter what!
“Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
Proverbs 3:5 KJV
