The life of Abraham teaches you that:
(1) You can walk with God, yet not know the details of
(2) When God makes you a promise, the timeline is up to
(3) Sometimes you'll get it wrong before you get it right.
(4) You can have faith in one area, yet experience fear
Abraham didn't know where the Lord would lead him. At
the urging of Sarah, Abraham fathered Ishmael and their
impatience cost them dearly. Even though Abraham loved
and trusted God, he still lied to the king about Sarah being his
wife and yet when it came to sacrificing his son Isaac on the
altar, Abraham showed himself willing and obedient to the Lord.
The tests you've been through begin to make sense when you
face y0ur biggest test. When you pass it, like Abraham, you can
call God "Jehovah Jireh" which means "The-Lord-Will-Provide"
and at that point God will say, "Now you've arrived at a place
where I can use you!"
