Safe Or Obedient?

And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28
Even when we are in a place of obedience to God, we often have no natural way of knowing for sure whether we are right or wrong. We have nothing more than faith to help us take that first step. We may not be certain that what we are doing is the right thing until after we have done it and then look back to see if God's grace was there to cause our efforts to bear good fruit.
Sometimes we may be wrong. That thought seems frightening, so we think we had better just stay where it is safe. But if we do that, we will soon be miserable if God has truly told us to move forward.
If our hearts are right, and we do our best when we hear Him, God will redeem us and honor our steps of obedience. If we move in childlike trust to obey what we believe in our hearts He has told us to do, even if that decision is wrong, God will take that mistake and work it out for our good (See scripture above).
Many people are afraid to move because they think that if they make a mistake, God will be angry with them. But this is where trusting His character is so vital to walking in faith. People who are too afraid to obey are so miserable anyway, that they cannot get any worse off by stepping out and trying to do what God is telling them to do.
Do not spend all your life playing it safe. Safety is very comfortable, but it may keep you from God's perfect plan for your life. Trust His Word and keep your heart willing and ready to obey. You will find throughout your life that God regularly calls us out of our comfort zones and into new places of faith and growth in Him. BE BLESSED!
