But now they desire a better country, that is an heavenly, Wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God; for he hath prepared for them a city (Gen 16,17). God said unto Abraham get out of thy country, form your family and from your fathers house to a land which I will show you (12:1 NKJV). Abraham obeyed the voice of God yet he did not know where he was going. God said he would show him that country(future tense).
It’s always God’s will to move and keep moving. Keep moving util you see the land promised to you. Abraham hd no map no google world so that the could scan for a good hotel and see work opportunities available. He just knew there was something more and something better than what he had. What makes this act of faith remarkable is that Abraham obeyed God. Oh it’s easy to say “yes” to God when the promises look good, when the opportunities are there, but Abrahan’s faith was not in the opportunity, Abrahams faith was in God, the promise came later. My question then is, what is God saying to you that you are willing to act on when what he says may not at this moment make too much sense? Are you you willing to step out in faith just because God requires it or are you basing your decision on the size of the reward. Abrahams reward was that he could trust God! How about you?
