“While Peter was still thinking about the vision, the Spirit said to him, ‘Simon, three men are looking for you.
So get up and go downstairs.
Do not hesitate to go with them, for I have sent them.'”
Acts 10:19 – 20 (NIV)
Has God given you a vision or dream for your life? Has He gently whispered His plans for your future? What are you doing about it right now?
Like Peter, God may be telling you to stop thinking about the vision and start doing something about it. The Holy Spirit instructed Peter to “get up and go” without any hesitation, fear, doubt or second-guessing. Do you feel God nudging you into action today? Is it time to take the first step ~ or leap ~ toward making the dream a reality?
You can be confident that if God has given you the vision, He will give you the provision and wisdom to successfully bring it to fruition. If you feel inadequate to accomplish His plans, you can rest in God’s promise that where you have weaknesses, you are strong in the grace of Jesus. So take that first step and pray for supplies of divine strength and grace to fulfill His vision for your life.
Stop thinking…start doing….get up and go!
“Each time He said, ‘No. But I am with you; that is all you need. My power shows up best in weak people.’
Now I am glad to boast about how weak I am;
I am glad to be a living demonstration of Christ’s power, instead of showing off my own power and abilities.”
2 Corinthians 12:9 (TLB)
“So do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
For I am the Lord your God
who takes hold of your right hand
and says to you, Do not fear;”
I will help you.
My Precious Child,

I’m the Friend who will never leave you alone or forget about you. I’m right here by your side. When you feel too weak to go on, I will give you the strength you need to endure. I will help you through this. I will hold you up and support you. I won’t let you fall. I will hold your hand with My firm grip. I’m not letting go!
Believe in My promises to you. You have nothing to fear.
Love, your Heavenly Father
