URGED BY FAITH!
Updated: Apr 11
“[Urged on] by faith Abraham, when he was called, obeyed and went forth to a place which he was destined to receive as an inheritance; and he went, although he did not know or trouble his mind about where he was to go.” (Hebrews 11:8 Amplified)
Three things struck me:
1. Urged on by faith
2. He went
3. He did not know or trouble his mind
Are you urged on by faith regardless of what's going on around you? When God asks you to go do you go or wait for more information? Can you do what God says without having all of the information? Is your mind troubled?
I would venture that if we allow faith to urge us, while being anchored in God, we can go without a plan, and without our minds being troubled because of our unwavering trust in God. Anything God asks us to do He makes it possible for us to do it. When we put the responsibility where it belongs, (on God), and move in faith, God will show us the way. Since we can only move one step at a time isn't it great that we only need enough information for the step we're on?
We can count on our faith in God:
“Now faith is the assurance (the confirmation, the title deed) of the things [we] hope for, being the proof of things [we] do not see and the conviction of their reality [faith perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses]. (Hebrews 11:1 AMPC)
Faith is what causes us to move when God gives us an assignment. We do it in love and in obedience to God.
“But without faith it is impossible to please and be satisfactory to Him. For whoever would come near to God must [necessarily] believe that God exists and that He is the rewarder of those who earnestly and diligently seek Him [out].” (Hebrews 11:6 AMPC)
When you know the power of faith you can be urged by faith and respond in faith.
