|Scripture reading:||I Kings 18:36-37 (NIV)|

It is impossible to go where God is leading without leaving where you are… you cannot do both, stay and go. Fear of the unknown — both the journey and the outcome — keep many from taking risks for the kingdom which also limits the blessing. Faith pulls us forward, fear pulls us backward. God desires faithfulness and obedience and often does not give us the destination or offer a clear picture of the whole plan. Our responsibility is to trust God and follow where he leads. God promises to be with us. We do not trust in the promise, we trust in promise-maker.
