We like to have everything planned out for our lives. We do not like to have unknowns in life. When we are planning a vacation, we calculate the cost and we plan the route to take, and we make a list of all of the items to pack. When we are getting a budget organized, we list all of our income and all of our expenses, and plan accordingly.
Yet in life, there are times when we cannot plan things. With Abraham, he was told to go but he wasn’t told where. He wasn’t given a map or even a general idea. He wasn’t given much of anything—but he was given a promise, a promise from God.
Abraham only had God to go on. He only had the promise God gave him to guide him and bless him. Today is a good day to walk in faith—to cling to the promises of God.
“Those who know your name trust in you, for you, LORD, have never forsaken those who seek you.” – Psalm 9:10 [NIV]
