Dare to Step Out

Gloria Copeland
Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you.

God can take the most simple person in the world who will dare to believe what is written in the Word, and empower him to do any job he is called to do.

I know this because God did that for me. The reason I’m so blessed today is because I am so simple that I believe God is smarter than I am. When I see something in the Bible that doesn’t agree with what I think, I change what I think and believe the Word of God.

Jesus admonished us to come as little children. So do that. Humble yourself and just take the Word as it is written. If God says you’ll do the works, don’t argue, just agree with Him and get busy!

Say, “Father, Jesus said, ‘He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also’ (John 14:12). I don’t know how to do the works, but Your Word says I will. So I place myself at Your disposal. I expect to do the works that Jesus did!”

Then step out boldly and act on your faith. The bolder we are, the more power there can be released through us. Did you know that? It’s when we hesitate and are afraid of what people might think that nothing happens. So make up your mind now to be bold—whether you want to or not.

That’s how it works. But you have to take the first step. Do what the Bible says to do whether you feel like it or not. That’s called ACTING ON THE WORD! And that’s called FAITH!

Speak the Word

I humble myself under the mighty hand of God so that He may exalt me. (1 Peter 5:6)
