Exercising Trust

By Ryan Kelly

One of my favorite movies is Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. The reason is because of the scene at the end where Jones has to pass the test which is a “leap of faith.” Before him was a deep cavern with no bridge to the other side. Crossing the cavern was the only way to save his father, but there was no apparent rational way to cross. It seemed to him that crossing would be disastrous. 
Have you ever felt like this in your life? When you got to the end of your path and had no rational way forward, did you trust in God with your step forward?  

Hebrews 11:1 states, “Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.” Sometimes God wants us to have faith in Him without knowing a rational reason for our next steps. 

Sometimes the destination is less important than the journey there. 

We will face many trials, tests, and leaps of faith in life. They will happen. So, do you truly have enough faith in God for Him follow through and guide your paths?  

Are you willing to trust in God more than yourself?
