God usually leads us one step at a time. Take Abraham for example. Genesis 12:1 describes the start of his faith journey: “Now the Lord said to Abram, ‘Go for yourself away from your country, from your relatives and your father’s house, to the land that I will show you.’” God gave Abraham step one. God implied that Abraham wasn’t getting step two or three until he had accomplished step one. This sounds like common sense, but it is so true: God usually gives us His direction one step at a time. Many people run into a problem here. They refuse to take step one until they think they understand the next steps. But if we knew all the steps ahead of time, there would be no need for faith. Understanding this truth, that His will is usually revealed to us one step at a time, will build our confidence to do what we already know to do— which is to step out. After we take the first few steps, our faith will really begin to grow. No one is instantly a spiritual giant who can take great steps of faith. Faith grows and develops through experience.
