The first step in doing anything is choosing to do it. In order to encourage someone, you first choose to look for the best. In order to be at peace, you first choose not to worry. In order to start something new, you first choose to step out and go for it.
You may not know how it’s all going to work out, but you can make some foundational choices today. Begin by saying things like, Today, I choose peace over fear! Today, I choose to start to break that old habit and start a good one! Today, I choose not to lash out in anger! Today, I choose to live fully in this moment!
Make a choice, take a step, and never forget to ask for God’s help (His grace) in the process. We can do all things with and through Him, but we can do nothing without Him (see Philippians 4:13; John 15:5).
Prayer Starter: Father, thank You that You have a divine destiny for my life. As I step out in faith, help me discover Your plan for my life. Thank You for showing me more about who You are and who I am as I walk with You. In Jesus’ name, amen.
