FAITH IS A JOURNEY.
Read Hebrews 11:8 from your Bible.
Faith begins with your response to God’s call despite the inconveniences that may accompany that call, which is one of the reasons many people don’t walk in faith.
God shows to us our glorious destination but will rarely give us details of what or where we have to go through to get there. This is where faith actually comes in. Faith is a journey to the unknown but real destination; it is taking practical steps towards the God ordained destination for your life.
When He called Abraham He told him, “… I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed”(Genesis 12:2-3). But Abraham started his journey to becoming a great nation by being a sojourner in a strange land.
Read Hebrews 11:9 from your Bible.
Sometimes, in your journey of faith you may look like a wanderer at the onset but at the end you will be turned into a wonder. Abraham was initially a wanderer in the land of Canaan, his ultimate place of possession. He had no place of his own, yet he kept following in faith.
Following God in faith means enjoying where you are till you arrive your place of destiny. Many anxiously look forward to the place that God has promised them but they are not willing to go through the process He wants to take them through.
You must understand that your destination defines and patterns your passage. To arrive a glorious end, you must be willing to follow the patterned route.
