One of the hardest things about following God’s leading is that we don’t get a roadmap for where He’s taking us. We can’t see the future or know what’s ahead. We don’t always know where we’re going, and we certainly don’t know how it will turn out when we get there. At times, that can feel like an uncertain and even scary place to be.

Though the call on our lives may not be as big or life-changing as it was for Abraham, it often feels as though God is calling us to take steps into the wild, and when that happens, we’re faced with a choice: we can either go forward in fear or go forward in faith.

Though it may not be easy, we’re called to trust the Lord with each and every step of the journey—even the parts that are unknown. When we believe in God, we believe in the power, courage, and strength He gives us. Take a look at Paul’s reminder of this in Ephesians:

Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his power.

—Ephesians 6:10 (NRSV)

As God calls you into things that feel intimidating, uncertain, or scary, remember that you can draw on His supernatural power, courage, and strength as you walk forward in following His leading in your life. This week, memorize this short verse from the book of Ephesians to remind you of the power of God at work in your life.


A hero is somebody who voluntarily walks into the unknown.
