Have you ever stepped out to follow God, only to discover when you got to where you were going, that it didn’t look anything like you thought it would? Has your obedience ever been followed by trials and testing? This is exactly what happened to Abram after he obeyed God’s call. It all started out very different than he must have imagined, but at just the right time, God fulfilled every one of His promises. If you are faithfully following God, but your life isn’t what you hoped for, keep trusting Him. He will not steer you wrong.
Remember Those Who Haven’t Heard
An estimated 97% of the world’s population has heard of Coca-Cola, yet more than 25% have never heard of Jesus. As we celebrate the fact that we have been privileged to hear the good news of the Gospel, may we remember all those outside our walls who have never heard, and may we long to share the good news with them so that they too may know.
