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.
Hebrews 11:8 NKJV
Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, and the evidence of things not seen. We have been looking this subject of faith for a while now. I haven't written about it for quite some time now, because of some things that were beyond my reach; but I thank God now we will continue with our daily Morning with Ebenezer messages.
Last time I said we will continue with this subject of faith by exploring the life of Abraham. We see in the Genesis 12 God calls Abraham, in that time his was still Abram before God changed it to Abraham in chapter 17 of the Book of Genesis. The Lord said, “Go away from your country, and from your relatives and from your father’s house. To the land which I will show you. (Genesis 12:1)
In those days there were no maps, GPS or the internet that you can go and Google a certain country. Maybe get some information about it and even see some parts of its landscape. Abraham put his faith to God who knew the country that he was going; God asked him to forsake all what he ever knew and his whole of his father's house and go where God will make him a great nation. So Abraham came out of Ur of the Chaldeans that is the present day Iraq, and he headed to Canaan that is parts of Lebanon, Syria, Jordan and Israel.
This morning, I want to encourage you to obey the voice of the Lord by faith. Maybe you are in a certain relationship and you feel like the Lord is directing you to leave that person and move on with your life. You may fear to do so because you think you may end up alone. I want to encourage you to obey the voice of the Lord and leave whatever you think is so important to you knowing that God has better things for you.
Maybe God called you in the ministry, if He spoke with you that it’s time for you to start a family. Maybe God wants you to leave your local Church behind and start going to another one. You don't need to fight with the voice of the Lord; you just obey it and let the Lord do the rest. We are going to continue with this Faith Series tomorrow by continue exploring the life of the Father of Faith, Abraham.
Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer....
Dear Heavenly Father, help me to obey You in all seasons of my life even if you are asking me to do things that will take me out of my comfort zone. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
