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.
Doing Whatever it Takes
The Bible tells a story of four men who were so determined to get a crippled man to Jesus, that they ripped the roof off a house to get him there! They were willing to do whatever it took. As followers of Christ, are we truly willing to do whatever it takes to get people to Jesus, despite the obstacles, despite the inconvenience, despite the cost? We never will be until we fully understand how much is at stake.
