Blind Faith

By Amanda Usher


“But when I am afraid, I will put my trust in you. I praise God for what He has promised…”

Psalms 56:3-4 (NLT)

It’s a difficult task to enter into a foreign experience completely blind. The outcome isn’t known. There’s uncertainty as to which struggles may present themselves. There are a plethora of emotions involved with traveling into unfamiliar territory.

But sometimes, you just have to pack up and go. Embark on a new journey despite any fear. Try your hardest to get that promotion that you’ve been waiting to receive. Move to that new place that you are absolutely sure God is telling you to go. Complete the assignment that He’s given you, no matter what it is, even if it’s starting a business or penning a novel. You never know what tremendous results can come out of you being obedient.

You can’t allow fear to hinder you from doing what God put you on this earth to accomplish. You have to trust Him and trust that He knows what He’s doing in your life. He will lead you step by step into victory, and make you a champion.

So praise Him to prove your faith, even if you don’t know what’s going to happen. Scream out in joy for not only what He has already done, but for the places that He will take you. Show Him that you’re going to let that timidity and fearfulness go and continue with His plan for you. Worship Him for He’s given you a promising future. Don’t be nervous to enter into it.

You have to also trust yourself. Believe that you can acquire the most amazing achievements. Understand that you can be and that you are a beautiful gift to this world. You may not think that you can do certain things, but you can. Don’t let your doubts stop you from trying because success comes with effort. Have faith in God, but have faith in yourself, as well.

God is going to raise you to new heights, not allow you to fall. Don’t miss out on blessings because you are afraid. Utilize the bravery and strength that He put inside of you. Trust, be faithful and watch God work.

What kind of fears do you have concerning entering into your future? What are you doing to vanish them?
