I was pondering Hebrews 11. Verse 8 stands out to me today.
By faith Abraham, when called to go to a place he would later receive as his inheritance, obeyed and went, even though he did not know where he was going.
Faith in God represents a change from our current situation.
God does call us to change, to grow. We don’t know usually know what the end result will look like, but if we allow God to direct the change, He will produce something beautiful in our lives.
“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.
I want God’s best. I want to experience more of Him. How do we do that in this world that is so combative to people of faith?
We have to have the faith of Abraham. Look at Abraham’s life. He was called to a place he didn’t know, and was not to take family with him (Genesis 12:1). Later, he was told to sacrifice the son he waited decades for (Genesis 22:2). He was to trust God the whole way.
Abraham’s whole life was a walk of faith.
I submit that our faith is too small. We give up too easily.
20 He replied, “Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”
I don’t know if I am capable of great faith like Abraham, but I know I want to grow my faith, and I’m asking God to help me do just that.
Blessed is she who has believed that the Lord would fulfill his promises to her!”
Blessings on your day.
