The view out the window of my back door today looks quite a bit tamer than what Cass Frear writes about seeing at the Moonboat Cafe.
This is one of our two new barn kittens Pepper, feeling somewhat protected by shovels, brooms and a trash can, while he looks to see what Faith (the dog) is doing.
He may indeed be small, but in his heart he is every bit the wild bobcat that went running through Cass's yard. Or perhaps he thinks himself a lynx. We have those in these parts as well.
Safe in the shadow of the trash can Pepper is free to imagine adventures of various sorts, where he is ever victorious.
But... he will never truly conquer his fear of Faith unless he steps away from his covering, his shelter, his feeling of protection.
Couldn't the same be said of us all? It's time to take a step out of the shadow, knowing that our God is with us and for us.
What, then, shall we say in response to this? If God is for us, who can be against us? Romans 8:31 NIV
It's time to respond to His command. The same words He spoke to Joshua, He speaks still to us today:
Haven't I commanded you? Strength! Courage! Don't be timid; don't get discouraged. God, your God, is with you every step you take. Joshua 1:9 The Message
Ask the Lord what step He's asking you to take this day. Then grab hold of His promises - and go!
