Taking Big Steps

John 1:35-42

As a five-year-old boy, I was walking down the sidewalk with my Dad when I first realized the vast difference in our strides. For every step he took, my little legs and feet would take at least two steps, maybe three, to his one. I was calculating the spaces of sidewalk he was covering in one stride versus the number of strides I needed when I asked him, “Daddy, why are your steps bigger than mine?” His response was something along the line, “My steps weren’t always this big; I had to grow into them.”

As we continued our journey that day, I watched every step my Dad walked and I tried my best to imitate him. I wanted my steps to grow into steps just like my Dad’s.

When Jesus calls us into something that seems out of our reach, He is not, however, asking us to do something unreachable. Jesus is asking us to trust Him. He is asking us follow Him, to imitate Him, and to obey.

How are you allowing God to help you match your stride to His?
