“Walking Blind”

Hebrews 11:8 says, “And Abraham went out not knowing where he was going.” 

This was not vocational uncertainty… “What job Lord?” nor was this relational uncertainty… “What spouse Lord?” 

This was faith to go out and completely upend his entire livelihood that Abraham had already built and profoundly, that with which God was pleased, so why the change? Something better ahead. But it wouldn’t look better, feel better, taste better or work better. 

Walking by faith is trusting God in your immaterial self – heart, mind and soul – and not with your material self – eyes, ears and feet. 

All along, God knew exactly where Abraham was going. Is that enough? 

Sometimes God leaves you in the dark so you know that He is the light.
