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.
Will You Finish What You Start This Year?
It’s easier to start something than it is to finish it… It’s easier to get married than to stay married. It’s easier to have children than to raise children. It’s easier to start school than to finish school. And most dangerous of all, it’s easier to receive Jesus as Savior than it is to follow Him all the days of your life as Lord. One thing is sure… this year you will be tempted to quit something you shouldn’t quit. Will you be prepared to use Christ as your example to press through those times as He pressed through for you?
