Stepping out is stepping up


Sometimes we think that God has to open the heavens above us before we dare to step out. Most often exactly the opposite is the case. Jesus stepped out by being baptised (in obedience to God) and then heaven was opened and he heard his Father’s voice:

Mark 1:10-11 Just as Jesus was coming up out of the water, he saw heaven being torn open and the Spirit descending on him like a dove.11 And a voice came from heaven: “You are my Son, whom I love; with you I am well pleased.”

If we do the right thing first, then the path we are taking will become much clearer. Do not wait for a voice from heaven before you step out. Step out, and then hear the voice.
