Once again, I feel sorry for squirrels. I know some of you reading this don’t like squirrels because they can be such a nuisance. They eat your bird food, chew through wires, and get in your attic. But I feel sorry for them. They are so indecisive, and often their indecisiveness leads to tragic results. You know how they are. As you approach in a car, if there is a squirrel on the side of the road, you can bet it is trying to decide whether to go or to stay. They dart out, come back, zig zag. You try to avoid hitting them, but often you don’t know which way to go because the squirrel can’t decide. And because squirrels can’t decide, often it doesn’t work out too well for them. Humans can be indecisive, too, but life boils down to the decisions made or not made. It is interesting that in making decisions, we often go one of two ways. We either decide too quickly without proper consideration of the facts and consequences, or we consider in such detail that we never decide. We either look without leaping or leap without looking. Some folks are ready, aim, aim, aim, and never fire. Others are ready, fire, and never aim. Which one are you? There is a time to study and weigh things out, but when it comes to faith, there is a time to step out and trust God and believe. So much that is so good, so many of God’s blessings are missed because we never step out in faith. If you want to know what God can do, then give God a chance to do it. Where is an area of your life that you need to step out in faith? Remember, it is impossible to please God without faith. Step out in faith today and see what God can do.
