Good morning.

Think of a time when you heard from God, whether it was a promise, a confirmation, or a conviction. What was your immediate response? Did you act on what He said, or did you sit and ponder whether it was really His voice?

Luke tells us that when the angels told the shepherds the Good News about Jesus’ birth, they “hurried off” to find Him. Instead of waiting around and letting doubt creep in, they responded immediately.

They no doubt had earthly concerns. What would they do with their flock? Should they tell their families first? Were they dressed appropriately? They didn’t let any of the questions we might have asked in the same situation keep them from quickly responding to God. This took great faith!

As followers of Christ, we need to embrace the kind of faith the shepherds displayed. When we hesitate with God, we create a breeding ground for doubt, fear, and insecurity - none of which come from Him. When we hear a specific word from Him, trust His direction. He will equip us to do what He’s asked us to do. All we need to do is respond.

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight." (Proverbs 3:5‭-‬6)

Let's stir our faith today and decide in advance that we will move when God says to move, no matter what!

Good morning. David writing in Psalm 43:5 asks, "Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me?" He then gives us good advice, "Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior
