The Lord had said to Abram, “Go from your country, your people and your father’s family. Go to the land I will show you.
“I will make you into a great nation.
And I will bless you.
I will make your name great.
You will be a blessing to others.
I will bless those who bless you.
I will put a curse on anyone who puts a curse on you.
All nations on earth
will be blessed because of you.”
So Abram went, just as the Lord had told him. Lot went with him. Abram was 75 years old when he left Harran. Genesis 12:1-4 NIRV
Abraham left his family and country to pursue the promise of a God he had only just met. Noah built a giant sized boat on the Word of an unseen God who said it would rain in a land that had never known rain. For 120 years he endured ridicule. David was anointed king but was hunted for years before he took the throne.
Who does that? People whose focus remains intentionally unwavering regardless of the time involved in the process.
We live in a society where waiting 3 minutes at a stoplight causes anxiety attacks and heaven help us if the drive thru window attendant is too friendly to the person in front of us.
When what God has promised doesn’t manifest in the time we’ve allowed Him, we tend to toss our faith away and assume God could care less. We couldn’t be more mistaken! He is more then faithful to a faithless generation.
There is NOTHING impossible to those who believe. Absolutely nothing! Don’t throw away your confidence just because it doesn’t show up when and how you think it should. Every story in the bible began with a promise. The length of time is determined by unwavering faith regardless of the odds and unchanging words.
Abraham got his son. Noah got his rain. David took his throne. You too will have what you’re willing to wait for. Just keep pursuing the presence of God and continue doing what He says.
