Have you ever been in a place where God asked you to do something that seemed unreasonable? Something that took you into the territory of the unknown? It could be that the Lord is asking you to refuse a long-awaited promotion or God may be calling you to change your career, go into ministry, or change your way of life to suit that of Christ.
The unknown is full of uncertainties especially in a world where we want to be assured of everything before venturing into something new. However, God often calls us to this unknown territory as we follow him. We are to obey his commands, to forgive, or to give away our treasures that provide security and pleasure in our lives.
Abraham went through a time of uncertainty. Imagine how he felt when God asked him to move his whole family without telling him where they were going. God will ask us to do stuff that are out of our comfort zones but we should believe and rely on Him to know He has the best interest at heart for our lives. Therefore, never be afraid to entrust the unknown future to the all-knowing God.
“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.”
