Good morning people who know God enough to trust Him
Hebrews 11:8-12 (NIV) 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. By faith he made his home in the promised land like a stranger in a foreign country; he lived in tents, as did Isaac and Jacob, who were heirs with him of the same promise. For he was looking forward to the city with foundations, whose architect and builder is God. And by faith even Sarah, who was past childbearing age, was enabled to bear children because she considered Him faithful who had made the promise. And so from this one man, and he as good as dead, came descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky and as countless as the sand on the seashore.
Our trust in God must be evident to all. Our trust in God must also go beyond our understanding. Abraham trusted and obeyed God even though he did not know where he was going.
Too often we don’t obey because of the uncertainty of what might happen. When this happens, fear not faith drives us.
I want to go back to the foundation of our trust in God. Our trust in God must be based on our knowledge of God. There is much to consider as we think about God, but when it comes to fuel for our trust in Him, here is my thought:
God is always good and He’s always working for my good.
That’s it! If this becomes a revelation to us, this is all the fuel that we need to trust God even when we have no idea of what will happen.
