Going on Still…

“And Abram journeyed, GOING ON STILL…” Genesis 12:9

As I’ve been studying about Abraham these last few days, I have been extremely encouraged by so many verses! This account is full of God’s provision and proof of His amazing faithfulness despite the waiting! But this verse in particular has challenged me to keep going for the Lord! To think that Abram went out “not knowing whither he went” Heb. 11:8  yet he trusted God enough to keep going is such a blessing! Remember that Abram had left everything he’d ever known to follow the Lord into a land that He had yet to show him! The Lord didn’t give Abram all of the details when asking him to go, but Abram believed that God knew and had it all under control! Although the Lord didn’t give Abram the answers to the Where? When? and How ? questions I know I would’ve had, He did promise 4 specific things. He asked Abram to leave his home country, his father, and his family for a new land, a great nation, a great name, and His blessing! This was the promise that kept Abram “going on still.”

In our own lives, God often asks us to step out in faith to allow Him to do things far beyond our comprehension! However, alot of times we miss incredible blessings because we’re too scared to let go of our own futures! Yet, just as the Lord gave Abram 4 specific promises, He has given us countless “exceeding great and precious promises” 2 Peter 1:4 in His Word that ensure He’ll take care of the details if we’ll only trust it to Him!

As Abram kept “GOING ON STILL”, regardless of the many years of waiting for the 4 promises to be fulfilled, may we keep “GOING” trusting it all to the infinite wisdom of a “Faithful Creator!” 1 Peter 4:19 We may not have the details or the answers to the questions filling our minds, but we have a God that does! The road may be full of unexpected turns, but rest assured that they’re all for our good and His glory! Keep “GOING ON STILL” although “not knowing” what tomorrow holds, knowing fully Who holds tomorrow!

    If you get two comments from me on this one, I apologize. I tried to leave one and I think I messed up somehow. So I am leaving it again. I would rather two be left than none.

    I have found a new way to start my day. It is such a blessing to come down and read such great things in the morning. We need the faith Abraham had when he left his home. The fdaith just to follow God no matter where it might lead him. I always think about Peter who had to faith to get out of the boat. Thank you for this remider to keep going. You are such an inspiration to me.
    Love you
    Uncle Joe
