3 Simplified Breakthrough Tips To Unlock Your Faith

In your wildest dreams, did you ever picture yourself to be in the place you are now? If you could go back in time and explain to yourself where the future has taken you, do you think you would even believe it? I believe there are reasons why God often shows us only our next step. The writer of Hebrews said, “Faith shows the reality of what we hope for; it is the evidence of things we cannot see.” (11:1) Martin Luther King Jr. said, “Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.” Here are 3 simplified breakthrough tips to unlock your faith.

1. Acknowledge your limited view. You don’t know what 10 years from now looks like, let alone the end of today. A phone call can come in at any minute and forever alter the course of your life. While we have a limited view of our future, we know that God is in control. Psalm 37:23 says, “The Lord directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives.” Don’t stress about your restricted view, but do recognize that you are unable to see the whole staircase.

2. Dedicate yourself to God; He is in control. Glance back at Psalm 37:23 and read that again. Did you catch that God directs the steps and He delights in every detail of our lives? Devote yourself to the One who has control. The next time you are stressing about an important project remember that God is by your side. When you are struggling in a relationship and don’t know where to turn next, commit that relationship to God. When you struggle to find the purpose of your life, surrender your plans to the Lord.

3. Focus on following God in your next step. Following God in the little things is just as important as the big. Psalm 37:23 says that the Lord directs the steps of the godly. Are you proving faithful to take that next step that God has called you to? Is there a decision that you have been putting off, but you know God was lining up for you to take? Stop being so concerned with the end outcome that you fail to follow God in your next step.
