Jesus steps are better than “baby steps”

Every step you take with the living Jesus brings you closer to the truth that sets you free. Every step prompted by the living Jesus will deepen your relationship with Him and will increase His power in your life. When Jesus is prompting you to take a step, don’t wait for human approval.

One solitary, Jesus-prompted step is more powerful in your life than a Fitbit full of self-directed steps. Take Jesus-prompted steps every day and you’ll begin to experience His miracles as a regular part of your life. One small, Jesus-prompted step can lead to a giant leap in spiritual growth!

Jesus-steps don’t follow a plan or a program. Jesus said, “I am the way.” They follow Him. To take Jesus-steps, we need to be directed by the living God, not by our own feelings or desires. When you take a Jesus-prompted step, don’t look back, or you’ll miss the miracle in front of you. Jesus-prompted steps will lead you outside your comfort zone and into His miracle zone.

When I look back in my mind and trace my Jesus-steps, I’m amazed how the Lord has led my life! Every time I’ve taken a Jesus-prompted step into the unknown, I’ve grown.

If you’re stuck in the past, you won’t have the faith to Jesus-step into the future. Every failure that motivates you to take a Jesus-prompted step, is a success. When you take Jesus-prompted steps, you walk in His footprints.

Jesus-prompted steps always involve humility. You can’t take them with pride. Jesus-prompted steps deny the odds and produce amazing outcomes. Sometimes God lets our problems pile up to motivate us to take a Jesus-prompted step that we’ve been ignoring.

It takes two to take Jesus-steps; Christ in you and you’re cooperation. The missing step in your life is probably the one you that you sense Jesus is prompting you to take. Take the Jesus-prompted step that you’ve been putting off.

Begin taking daily Jesus-steps and soon you will flow with divine choreography. The steps you take, under the influence of the living Jesus, will change your life and intoxicate you with love.

Hearing God’s melody and the beat of His heart, will make you want to dance with Jesus-steps. If you lose yourself in Jesus-steps, you’ll find joy like never before.

The living Jesus can choreograph my life far better than I can. When life tries to give you a blackout, let the living Jesus give you a light-up. Repentance is to take a step backwards and do your best to make things right.

Spiritual growth is a lot of Jesus-steps put together. You don’t have to understand the entire Bible. Just begin to take Jesus-steps day by day. Taking daily Jesus-steps will teach you how to actively follow Him.

You can’t walk in the Spirit by just Sunday-sitting in church. It’s a daily thing! The secret to “walk in the Spirit” is to begin to regularly take Jesus-prompted steps. Let the living Jesus choreograph your every step. A few occasional footsteps with Jesus do not make a Christ-follower.

Begin to baby step with the living Jesus and one day you’ll be giant stepping with Him. It’s hard to take Jesus-steps when we’re following our own opinion. Take distinct Jesus-steps by listening to His voice & doing what He says.

“Walk in the Spirit.” Let your steps be prompted by the living Jesus. To “rest in the Lord” is not to do nothing. It’s to wait for His prompting with eagerness to obey. If you follow and obey the living Jesus, He’ll lead you to the right steps at the right time.

Take some Jesus steps-everyday, until all your days are filled with them. To begin a lifestyle of Jesus-prompted steps, you have to be willing to take the first one.

Jesus stepping:
Sensing His nudging
And obeying
Without begrudging.

Take one Jesus-step
After another
And soon you’ll discover:
He’s propelling you.

The crowd follows
The status quo
But the living Jesus
Wants you to go
With Him.

Inside you,
The living Jesus
Longs for your heart
To fully surrender to Him.

Let the living Jesus
Be your stepping stone,
The solid rock
You build your life on.

Christianity is more powerful when lived on your feet in the street than on your seat in church. Daily Bible reading is a great gift in my life–stirring my heart with love for Jesus and training me to hear and obey His voice. If Christians don’t share testimonies, people won’t know the amazing things that Jesus has done in their lives.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @ http://amzn.to/2nCr5dP
