What do you do in times of trails ? Keep the faith

Hebrews 11:8-12

“By faith Abraham obeyed when he was called to go out to a place that he was to receive as an inheritance. And he went out, not knowing where he was going. By faith he went to live in the land of promise, as in a foreign land, living in tents with Isaac and Jacob, heirs with him of the same promise.  For he was looking forward to the city that has foundations, whose designer and builder is God.  By faith Sarah herself received power to conceive, even when she was past the age, since she considered him faithful who had promised.  Therefore from one man, and him as good as dead, were born descendants as many as the stars of heaven and as many as the innumerable grains of sand by the seashore.”

Abraham left his wealthy nation of Ur, which by all accounts was one of the most powerful and wealthy in the known world (Gen. 15:7) to start something new , somewhere new and become the father of nations and the one through whom all nations would be blessed .  How hard would it be for you to leave your family, your city, your country, your work, and all that you know and do what God wants of you?

Abraham lived by faith alone .He moved by faith, he left (Ur) by faith, he left family by faith, he went into the unknown and unseen by faith, and God’s promise, beginning with Noah and repeated in Abraham’s faith, will be seen throughout the entire Bible.

In your trails , your movement out of your comfort zone towards the seat God has prepared for you there will trouble , there will be uncertainty but there will also be faith , hold on to it and you will see your Promised Land .
