The Lord had said to Abram, ‘Go from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you. – Genesis 12:1
What a request! What a direction given to Abram by God. God did not show Abram how he would get food and water for himself, for his people or their cattle. God said that Abram should live day by day and trust Him for every day. ‘Put your future in My hands. Surrender your life to Me. If you do this and trust Me, I will take care of you, protect and guide you. I will take you to a place that you would never imagine.’
The place of great blessings
The place where God wanted to bring Abram into is the same place He wants to bring all His children. It is a place of great blessings. Abram’s decision to obey God would have great consequences for him, his wife, his offspring and for the entire world.
The Bible says in Genesis 15:6: ‘Abram believed the Lord, and He credited it to him as righteousness.’ The apostle Paul says in Galatians 3:7: ‘Those who have faith are children of Abraham.’
Do not worry
We will also be blessed by God if we dare to fully trust Jesus with our future. Jesus said in Matthew 6:28-34 that we do not have to worry about food, drinks or clothing. He even said we do not have to worry about tomorrow.
What God did for Abram, He also wants to do for you. Put your and your children’s future in His hands. You will see that this is safer than relying on a good education or career. All those things fall short, but our God remains the same good God.
