TODAY’S PROPHETIC WORD
It’s time to take a step of faith. Where is God asking you to step out? He has put a dream in your heart. Take the first step toward that dream.
ONE SMALL STEP FOR MAN…
On July 16, 1969 at 13:32 EDT, a three man crew soared with wings of eagles past the earth’s atmosphere to the moon. Prophetically, the lunar module was named Eagle.
When I think of what those guys endured to break through the earth’s gravity, it blows my mind! With the computer technology of a modern wrist watch, Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins did what most thought impossible. They orbited, then landed on the moon.
The mission commander, Armstrong said, “Houston, Tranquility Base here. The Eagle has landed.” With those eight words, a new era of space exploration had begun. In the Bible, eight means “new beginnings.”
A few minutes later, Armstrong said some other prophetic words, “One small step for man. One giant leap for mankind,” as he left an American flag and some footprints to mark his territory. Yes, man’s accomplishments were on display! Note the name “Arm-strong” and I think you get the picture.
Though it was a wonder that men were able to accomplish such a feat, there was a man who has done so much greater. You see, 2,000 years ago, this man left his footprints in the dust of planet earth. Instead of leaving earth to go to the heavens, He left heaven to come to earth. His impact upon this world is felt today as millions across the globe follow in those footsteps.
As man vowed to return to the moon, Jesus vowed to come back to earth. His original goal was accomplished and His vow to return will be fulfilled sooner than you and I think!
While you and I cannot step in the footprints of Aldrin, Collins or Armstrong, we can certainly follow the footsteps of Jesus. He has laid out the path of redemption and it leads to a big mansion where rooms for you and I await. Rooms in His Father’s house where we will be part of the family. All we need to do is step where He steps!
The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord, and He delights in his way. – Psalms 37:23
TODAY IS A GOOD DAY TO START WALKING TOWARD YOUR DESTINY IN CHRIST. YOU DON’T HAVE TO SEE THE ENTIRE STAIRCASE – JUST THE FIRST STEP.
