Devotional



Launch Out!

Can you imagine how hard it must have been for Abraham to "launch out" and follow God without any idea of where he was going?

Or what about Sarah? I've often thought about how hard it must have been for her to accompany this man who had his heart set on an unseen God with a mysterious and unpredictable scheme. Where was her security? Who was in control?

God is calling many of you, too, to "cut your shorelines" and launch out onto deeper waters. It's frightening. For as one partner reminded me, "There are no paths in the ocean!" When we beg God for a roadmap, He replies, "For now, I'm not going to give you one."

You've heard His call. You want to obey. But you toss and turn, fearing the unknown. Stop fretting long enough to listen to what He is saying to you, "Enlarge the place of your tent, and let the curtains of your habitations be stretched out; spare not, lengthen your cords and strengthen your stakes..." (Isaiah 54:2, AMP).

As you lie down tonight, be courageous and sleep well. Know that we are praying for you as you launch out. If you will write to us, we will have others pray for you, too. We are one. Believe that we will all uphold each other during these end-time hours of breaking through to new frontiers!

God loves you and wants to answer your prayer. Say this prayer with me:

Heavenly Father, I thank You for the strength and encouragement You give me to face the unseen challenges ahead. Like Abraham, I will learn day-by-day to trust and rely totally upon You. Father, I also ask that You give refreshment, guidance and Your strength to others, who like me, are striving to obey Your call, enlarging the place of their tents, and are willing to launch out onto the deep! In Jesus' Name, Amen.
