1182nd -- Message On Stepping By Faith


A very popular and well-known quote says “A journey of 1000 miles begins 
with a single step.” This is a very true observation because in order to 
begin any new endeavor we must have the gumption and the wherewithal to 
actually begin. There are many people in this world who want to start 
something new, but they never get around to actually starting something 
new. We tell ourselves that tomorrow we will start that diet, tomorrow we 
will quit smoking, tomorrow we will study for that test, tomorrow we will 
start looking for a job, tomorrow we will pursue that dream that has been 
in our hearts for so long. We postpone for tomorrow what could be started 
today because we don't wholeheartedly want to start, or believe that we 
can be successful if we do start that new endeavor. What I have found to 
be true is that when I take the initiative and take the first step by 
faith and actually begin a new thing, the outcome turns out much better 
than I ever thought it would be. Let me explain.

I have been doing this ministry work since 1999 and I started the E-mail 
Encouragement Ministry in March of 2000. Since that time I have sent out 
over 1,180 messages all to the glory of God. During those years of the 
messages being sent out, I received numerous requests asking for me to 
write a book of these messages so that they would be easily accessible 
within a person's reach. To be honest I never had the urge in my heart to 
do that. For years I continued to be faithful in writing and sending out 
the messages via e-mail and through my website Godswork.org completely 
free of charge and I called it a privilege to be used of God in this 
manner. It wasn't until April of 2013 that I felt the leading of the Lord 
to write a book.

I didn't know how to put a book together, I didn't know how I would publish
it and get it out to the world, but I took the first step by faith and 
trusted that God would lead the way. In a little over a month on May 23, 
2013 the book was written, edited, formatted and published on Amazon.com 
through the Kindle format for digital reading. How was that possible? 
The Lord led the way! I read a few instructional books and learned how to 
properly structure a book, how it should be formatted and what 
specifications were required to get it published. It was amazing to me 
how the pieces fell into place. After I published the e-book, I received 
many requests for a paperback version. Again, I had no idea on how to get 
it done, but again God was faithful. Within another month, the paperback 
was available for purchase around the world through Amazon.com. And now 
after following God's leading again, I am ready to publish Volume 2 of 
Messages of Hope and I am nearing completion of an Audiobook version of 
Messages of Hope that will be a blessing to all of those who hear it and 
put into practice what those messages convey.

What is the reason that I'm sharing all of this? It is to encourage you 
and show you that anything is possible when you take the first step by 
faith. Believe in yourself. Believe that you are meant for more. Believe
that greatness lies within your being. Trust that your life is significant
and can make a great impact for yourself, for your family and for this 
world. We sometimes doubt our significance and we believe that we are 
less than because we have fallen short in times past, but I want you to 
know that with God a new beginning is always possible. He can use you in 
ways that you have never thought would or could be possible. He is the God
of the impossible. He loves a challenge, He loves to prove the doubters 
wrong and He loves to show His Strength to those who trust Him.
(James 2:20) (Hebrews 11:6) 

Don't doubt your uniqueness. There isn't another you and there never will 
be. You are an original created by the Hands of Almighty God and I want 
you to know that greatness lies within your being. Whatever dreams you 
had deep within your heart that have been laying there dormant should be 
revived anew. Don't go to your grave with your dreams still inside of you.
Don't give up before you have even begun. As long as you have breath 
within your lungs then your story isn't finished yet. If God led me, then 
He can lead you. If God brought all the pieces together for me, then He 
can do the same for you. Be bold, Be confident, Be unwavering and in faith
Believing take the first step and start your journey!
(Isaiah 43:18-19) (Luke 1:49-53) (Psalm 138:6-8)

Read and meditate on these scriptures:

Proverbs 8:12-16 “I wisdom dwell with prudence, and find out knowledge of 
witty inventions. The fear of the LORD is to hate evil: pride, and 
arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate. Counsel is 
mine, and sound wisdom: I am understanding; I have strength. By me kings 
reign, and princes decree justice. By me princes rule, and nobles, even 
all the judges of the earth. I love them that love me; and those that seek
me early shall find me.”

Philippians 2:13-15 “For it is God which worketh in you both to will and 
to do of His good pleasure. Do all things without murmurings and 
disputings: That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, 
without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom 
ye shine as lights in the world.”

Hebrews 13:5-6 “Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be 
content with such things as ye have: for He hath said, I will never leave 
thee, nor forsake thee. So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, 
and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.”

Joshua 1:9 “Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be 
not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee 
whithersoever thou goest.” 

Proverbs 3:5-6 “Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto 
thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall 
direct thy paths.” 

All of these scriptures can be found in the King James Version Bible.
