Where’s He Taking You?

“The LORD had said to Abram, ‘Leave your country, your people and your father’s household and go to the land I will show you. I will make you into a great nation and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.’ So Abram left, as the LORD had told him.” (Genesis 12:1–4, NIV 1984). 

My Musings – Why aren’t God’s promises enough for us?  Why do we need to know all of the details between where we are and where He is taking us?  Is it that “He” cannot be trusted?  Of course not!  Or is it because “we” do not trust Him enough?  If there is a third option, I’m all ears.

My Advice – So, where is the Lord taking you?  “I don’t know.  He hasn’t told me yet.”  That’s okay.  You know enough about Him to follow His leading, even if you don’t know exactly where He is taking you. So, go “as the LORD [tells you].”  That is the direction in which the blessings lie.

P.S. Sometimes He tells us to stay. When to go and when to stay may not be as visible as a pillar of cloud or fire, just be ready to go or stay however He shows you. Just remember, they did not know where the cloud or fire was going. But they knew who sent them and the direction He was moving them.

“Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make you paths straight.” (Proverbs 3:5-6, NIV 1984).
