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.
What Will Be Written on Your Tombstone?
Whether we realize it or not, we will all leave some kind of monument after we die that others will remember us by. The Bible warns us how important it is for us to live in such a way that we will not only have a good name while we’re alive, but that even after we’re gone, our good name will linger on as a sweet fragrance to bless the lives of those who follow. Each day we live we’re adding a new page to the memoir of our life. What are you writing on your page today, and what will be written on your tombstone when your life is over?
