God’s map of obedience
Hebrews 11:8 (NKJV)
8 By faith Abraham obeyed when he was called to go out to the place which he would receive as an inheritance. And he went out, not knowing where he was going.
How often do you leave home without knowing where you are going? when Abraham received God’s word to leave Haran is Genesis 12, he responded to God’s directive with obedience.
Abraham promptly packed up his family and left Haran without knowing where they were headed. The only thin Abraham knew was that God had asked him to do go.
From then on two things characterised Abraham’s journey of faith. The first was his tent, evidence of his earthly pilgrimage and a symbol of his heavenly citizenship. He knew that the promises of God were far greater than building a permanent home in a new homeland.
The second symbol was the altars Abraham built, physical structures showing his spiritual dependancy upon God. day after day, as Abraham walked with God, His purposes were revealed.
Wherever God leads you in life, remember that you are always “at home” with Him.
I really want to encourage you to be diligent with your Bible study time, because God has so much more for us than we can get from just going to church once or twice a week and hearing someone else talk about the Word. When you spend time with God, your life will change in amazing ways, because God is a Redeemer. There’s nothing that’s too hard for Him, and He can make you whole, spirit, soul and body!
