Risk Facing the Unknown
“At the end of forty days they returned from exploring the land. They came back to Moses and Aaron and the whole Israelite community at Kadesh in the Desert of Paran. There they reported to them and to the whole assembly and showed them the fruit of the land.” Numbers 13: 25-26
In the United States alone, over $119 billion dollars are lost each year in the gambling industry. But what does it mean to gamble? It’s taking a risk to achieve a desired result. But there’s no such thing as a risk without a certain level of uncertainty.
To risk facing the unknown is hard. As humans, we think we need the answer to every question and to know and understand everything. But God is certain in our uncertainty and will lead us in the direction He wants our life to go. For Moses and the Israelite people, the Promise Land was unknown. But Moses had faith to seek out what He knew by faith God had promised His people. Are you hedging your bets on God’s plan for your life? Or is uncertainty keeping you frozen in fear?
Thank God for His certainty in your life and name the areas specifically that you have recently seen Him prove Himself to be faithful. Ask Him to give you the confidence to follow Him into the unknown areas of your life.
Where do you need to step out into the unknown of your life and take action? Is it starting a new career or asking forgiveness from someone where there has been conflict in the past?
