What is one of the best elements about Christmas, aside from the obvious of Jesus’ birth? The presents? The tree? The food? Nope! For me, it’s the music!
I love all the Christmas music. …

To Leap or Not to Leap

Submitted by on August 7, 2012 – 6:00 amNo Comment

Standing on the edge, swimmies snug on the arms.

Ready, set, JUMP!

Caught by Dad.

Paddle to the edge.

Climb the ladder.

Stand on the edge again.

Ready, set, JUMP!

 

Those were the days when the kids were very young and we took them swimming. They loved to leap from the side of the pool and be caught.

 

But let’s back up a bit. Did they love jumping in at first? No way! In fact, they were quite apprehensive, even frightened. But with trust in their father, they lept, recognizing the safety of his open arms, and their fears dissipated.

 

What about us? Are we ready to take a leap off that spiritual edge into the scary unknown of obeying some command or new action given by the Lord? Or do we believe it to be so difficult that we talk ourselves out of obedience?

 

Do we permit our past to shove us into the back of the closet of self-preservation? Do we accept the attempts of the Ol’ Fear-monger to paralyze us with fear, immobilizing us in our present?

 

We always have a choice. To get started in whatever task the Lord calls us to do, we must choose to overcome what holds us back and take that step or leap of faith.

 

However, the Lord never gives us courage for that first step. He leaves that initial decision up to us. He may nudge us a little, but we have to take that first step of faith, or leap of faith, as the case may be. Just as those down through the ages have done.

 

Noah stepped out in total faith. Actually, he took a giant leap! Build a what? Because it’s going to do what? What is rain? And what’s a cubit? Did others laugh at him? I’m most certain they did.

 

Has God led you to do something so outrageous that it appears ridiculous to you? Stepping out may seem laughable to you. But it will cost you, and possibly others, dearly if you do not obey.

 

Did it seem impossible to the Israelites when they were hemmed in on all sides, the Pharaoh’s rattling chariots closing in behind them, the mountain heights looming on either side of them, and the sea’s heaving waves in front of them?

 

Walk into the water? Really? Into it? Beyond the bounds of possibility, right?

 

Has God asked you to do something that seems hopeless to accomplish? He will make a way, you know.

 

And there’s Abraham. Obeying the Lord by leaving where he lived and going to an unknown land. “By faith Abraham obeyed when he was called to go out to the place which he would receive as an inheritance. And he went out, not knowing where he was going. By faith he dwelt in the land of promise.” (Heb. 11:8-9a NKJV)

 

Not even knowing where he was going! But to activate that promise of God, Abraham placed one foot in front of the other. In my quirky mind, I hear the words to the song in the cartoon Santa Claus is Coming to Town

 

Put one foot in front of the other And soon you’ll be walking cross the floor Put one foot in front of the other And soon you’ll be walking out the door.

Have you hesitated as God has been nudging you to do something? If you are apprehensive, even frightened to take that first step or leap of faith, trust in your Father, take the plunge, recognize the safety of His open arms, and your fears will dissipate.

 

To leap or not to leap? Go ahead! Take the leap! See what happens!

From His feet, Lynn
