There is implied failure there, isn’t there? There is insinuation of a gap between where we are and what we’re jumping to. This gap is the unknown. And what is implied is that we could jump . . . and fall.
But for the Christ-follower, there’s a simple truth:
A leap of faith is only a leap from our perspective. From God’s perspective, it’s simply the next step in the journey He has mapped out for you.
If you’re following God, seeking His will and listening for His leading, there is no risk of failure. Not failure in a Kingdom sense.
When we follow God’s call, there is no leap. There’s no leap because there’s no gap. There’s no real distance between where we are and where God wants us to be, only perceived distance. To arrive where God wants us, all we need to do is keep walking, one step after the next.
If God is calling you to do something, putting an urge in your heart that aligns with His mission and the passions He has birthed in you, to respond to His call isn’t risk. It’s simply the next stage in your journey. To NOT respond is to forestall God’s desire to use you according to His pleasure.
