Our Faith Journey

“By faith Abraham, when called to go to a place he would later receive as his inheritance, obeyed and went, even though he did not know where he was going” (Hebrews 11:8).

Author F.B Meyer, in one of my favorite devotional books, Streams In The Desert, comments on this passage. I want to share his words with you—

Abraham “did not know where he was going”—it simply was enough for him to know he went with God. He did not lean as much on the promises as he did on the Promiser. He did not look at the difficulties of his circumstances but looked to His King—the eternal, limitless, invisible, wise, and only God—who had reached down from His throne to direct his path and who would certainly prove Himself.

O glorious faith! Your words and possibilities are these: contentment to set sail with the orders still sealed, due to unwavering confidence in the wisdom of the Lord High Admiral; and a willingness to get up, leave everything, and follow Christ, because of the joyful assurance that earth’s best does not compare with heaven’s least.

The author of Streams In The Desert, L.B. Cowan, adds a final word—In no way is it enough to set out cheerfully with God on any venture of faith. You must also be willing to take your ideas of what the journey will be like and tear them into tiny pieces, for nothing on the itinerary will happen as you expect.

Your guide will not keep to any beaten path. He will lead you through ways you would never have dreamed your eyes would see. He knows no fear, and He expects you to fear nothing while He is with you.

So true! The journey of faith we must each take will be like no other one and, yet, what we share in common is a profound faith in the One who leads us on this path. He is worthy of our trust! He is deserving of our confidence! May our faith honor Him as such!

Devotedly yours,
Pastor Ron
