By faith Abraham, when called to go a place he would later receive as his inheritance, obeyed and went, even though he did not know where he was going.
Sometimes we feel like Abraham, not knowing where we are heading or what the future holds. But by trusting God, Abraham knew there was light at the end of the tunnel, and God’s purposes for him would unfold. Is the end of the pandemic coming into view? We don’t know how things will work out – it looks like they will get worse before they get better – but we can put our faith in a trustworthy God, as Abraham did, and look forward to our heavenly inheritance. The New Year is coming. But do we know what life after covid will look like? What will have changed for ever? It’s all unknown.
Thank-you Lord for the assurance of eternal life. Help us to trust and obey, even if we don’t know what the future holds.
