For we walk by faith, not by sight.
2 Corinthians 5:7 (NKJV)
World Changer: Abraham is the person with greater faith of which the Bible relates that he walked without ever looking back, or doubting all the advice that day by day he heard from God.
God commanded him to leave his land, relatives and his father’s house, to go to a place that still did not even have a name, but nevertheless he believed, obeyed and left.
Abraham surely being a man of advanced age was comfortably established in the lands of his father, and he would inherit them without a doubt, but he preferred to go out without looking and obeying his Creator.
Abraham left as God had told him and immediately after he had to go through a famine in the land that forced him to descend to Egypt risking his life, that of his wife and that of his tribe and God also gave him the victory during that time of need.
*We, the Christians that have been born again, are going to be demanded by God to have this same faith and we can be sure that each one will be asked something different to leave behind, and begin to trust in the promises of God so that he can take us to the promised land that He has prepared for us.
Now it is very important that on this day we stop and ask ourselves how much we have understood about eternity that really is our final destination? We are not walking only by the needs and promises that God gives us to live in this world: food, room and clothing, but we are fighting a battle day by day to be in our heavenly abode when we reach eternity with Christ.
That faith has to be the one that today is the foundation of our Christian walk and today is the day if you have not yet believed in Jesus to come to Him (Romans 10: 8-13).
Christ in us our world-changing hope of glory (Colossians 1:27, 1 Corinthians 15:10, 57). Hallelujah.
