Now the Lord had said to Abram: “Get out of your country, from your family and from your father’s house, to a land that I will show you. I will make you a great nation; I will bless you and make your name great; And you shall be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and I will curse him who curses you; And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”
So Abram departed as the Lord had spoken to him, and Lot went with him. And Abram was seventy-five years old when he departed from Haran. Genesis 12:1-4 NKJV
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 absolutely 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.
