September 1st – A Leap of Faith

“Faith expects from God what is beyond all expectation” –Andrew Murray

     The impala is an medium-sized antelope that roams the terrain of eastern and southern Africa. It is quick, agile, and swift on the run. It is primarily known as a fleet runner with an amazing ability to leap. It can jump up to ten feet high and thirty feet long. Quite literally, it can jump over any obstacle in the flatlands where it abides. But as nimble as the impala is, it has one limitation: the impala will not jump if it cannot see where it will land. Zookeepers can actually keep the impala enclosed with nothing more than a three feet wall.

I know a lot of Christians who live the same way. They have great abilities, God-given talents, and even passionate desires; but they have a hard time taking a leap. The reason being, they cannot see where God wants to take them.

Hudson Taylor said, “Many Christians estimate difficulty in light of their resources, and thus they attempt very little and they always fail.” Those who refuse to take leaps of faith feel as though they are safer and more secure, when in reality, they actually position themselves as a prey. Faith is believing and trusting God even when we do not know where we will land. Take a leap of faith, and trust God to take care of the rest.
