Step-by-step faith

By faith these people overthrew kingdoms, ruled with justice, and received what God had promised them. They shut the mouths of lions… Heb. 11:33

The first step of faith landed a shepherd named David holding a handful of rocks facing a giant and an immigrant widow named Ruth picking up food scraps in a field. The first step of faith seldom lands us at the happily-ever-after-everything-makes-sense-now end of the story. It often lands us in a new, possibly scary situation that requires yet another step of faith.

Lord, I’d like to know the whole story, but what I know about You is enough for me to take the next step.
