About the Foundation of Jump For God
For by you I can run against a troop, and by my God I can leap over a wall. 2 Samuel 22:30 ESV
God gives us the power to overcome just any obstacle in our way. Sadly, not everyone is aware of this power although it lives within every newborn Christian. All we need to do to experience this truth is jump! It is like when you go skydiving: You won’t see the amazing view and feel the freedom up high if you don’t jump. And God won’t let us hit the ground if we focus on him, because
Though they stumble, they will never fall,
for the Lord holds them by the hand. Psalm 37:24 NLT
When we keep our eyes on our heavenly Father and trust in his promises, we will be able to jump out of the boat of comfort and security and into the adventure of following Christ. When we step out in faith, amazing things will happen and with our focus on God, nothing will be impossible! Miracles will surround us at any time and we will grow more and more into the likeness of Jesus, our Savior.
About the Mission of Jump For God
And he said to them, “Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.” Matthew 4:19 ESV
Sometimes it’s hard to make the first step towards following Jesus, though. It is not easy ignore the lies of the enemy who is constanly trying to beat us down. Therefore, the mission of this blog is to spread the empowering truths of God, our Father, with many testimonies from my own life.
Jesus died to set us free from the chains of this world. He died on the cross, to pay for our sins and to give us a new life. The Lord of all Creation who is above everything has forgiven all who believe in him, so why should we be afraid? Jesus himself said,
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. John 14:27 NIV
Thus, whenever you are afraid or can’t find the strength to hold on, remember the promise of our Lord:
So do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. Isaiah 41:10 NIV
