“By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went”.
Hebrews 11:8 (KJV)
Have you ever wondered why Abraham walked with God in a way no other person did? No doubt, Abraham caught a revelation that this God was different from all the other little gods he was used to. Abraham must have asked himself; why would a Holy God choose to call me out of an idolatrous background? Don’t forget that it was God who initiated the move. It was God’s idea from the very beginning.
Beloved, it is not about what you do or about your love for God. It is really knowing the love of God for you, which He demonstrated in Christ. The love of God to us is so deep that many people have not come to terms with it. That is why there is a lot of struggle. Think of it. If you understand the love that stooped so low when you were nothing and picked you up. The love that reached out to you even when you did not know it existed. When you realize how much God loves you like Abraham realised, the struggle comes to an end. The song writer said it is so high, I can’t get over it, so deep, I can’t get under it, so wide I can’t get around it, Oh wonderful love. When you comprehend just about 10% of this love, you will realise how much God is willing to do for you, and you will enter into His rest. Your assignment is to walk in His love and know that He will take care of all that concerns you.
Let me, however, add that the fact that God has spoken to you about a greater dimension of His glory does not mean the devil will fall down and play dead. No! He will attempt to contradict what God said through contrary situations and challenges. But you must stand on the word. Resist him and he will flee from you. Don’t lose faith. Stand hot and on fire for God. Embrace commitment over convenience. Let the devil know that you are not slowing down neither are you giving in. Stand firm and see the salvation of God.
I declare that you will not remain where you have always been because a change is coming to you. You will break loose from everything that had hitherto hindered you. Your rising begins now! You will win in the competitions of life. Head or tail you cannot lose.
