Day 36 — Why do we hesitate in following God?
“By faith Abraham obeyed when he was called to go out to a place that he was to receive as an inheritance. And he went out, not knowing where he was going. By faith he went to live in the land of promise, as in a foreign land, living in tents with Isaac and Jacob, heirs with him of the same promise.” (Hebrews 11:8–9, English Standard Version)
Did you catch that? “He went out, not knowing where he was going.”
How often do we hesitate to follow God’s leadership because we don’t know where this path will lead? I think Abraham figured out something that will help us. He didn’t know where the path would lead, but he knew it would lead to God’s presence. In Genesis 12:1, God told Abraham to go to “a land I will show you.” He didn’t say “a land I will tell you about.”
Abraham could go out because God would go with Him. He will never send us to a place where He is not.
