Today’s devotional is a word reposted from Cindy Jacobs of General’s International ministry. Let God encourage you through this message today.
“And I saw that the waters were so troubled underneath this bridge that we as God’s children were looking at it and we weren’t looking at the bridge, we were looking at the troubled waters, and as I stood and I knew I represented the body of Christ, I was looking at this bridge and it was dark walking up onto that bridge so I could not see where I would be walking and so the darkness of the night, I knew I was in transition. I needed to cross that bridge, but both that and the troubled waters disturbed me so much. I felt disturbed. I was having to fight concern almost to the point of fear for my future as I crossed that bridge.
And the Holy Spirit began to speak this word to me, and He said, “I am the one that will take you from point A to point B, but you have to be the one that steps on the bridge. I am the one that is there for you, and I am planning your future, but I’m not going to show you the future in the way you want, because I am building your trust factor that I am a sure bridge. And in a season of transition, whether it’s a transition in your level of faith or whether it’s circumstances that you don’t know how to walk through, you don’t know how I’m going to work these things out for you. You only are looking at the waters that are troubled and the darkness of the night. But I would say to you, you must step onto the bridge. You must be willing to make the steps and know that it is I who am beckoning you to enter new levels of trust. I am beckoning you to look at me, your bridge, not the circumstances around you. So know this, I am speaking to you today and I am nudging you even, step out! Step out!I am your firm footing. I will make your feet like hinds’ feet in high places. I will give you assurity to walk.”
And the Lord says, “And you have been saying, ‘Lord, you’re going to have to show me before I make the steps’. And I am saying that is not the way it’s going to work. For you will not move into presumption, but you must stop looking at the circumstances that are troubled waters to you and you must stop looking at the fact that you can’t see where you are walking and the eventuality of it. You must trust me,” says the Lord.
“And I will speak peace in to the waters and I will be that person for you that you need. I will comfort you today,” says the lord.
“If you trust me, I will be with you for I am your bridge over troubled waters,” says the Lord. ”
