Topic: THE BLIND JOURNEY CALLED FAITH
Text: Hebrews 11:8-9
📖8….”By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went.
📖9….By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise:”
🔥As love is an unquestioning self humiliation, so faith is a blind devotion to God, which makes a believer to dwell in God’s blessings without knowing it…Heb 11:8. The call of Abraham by God, to depart from his country, kindred and father’s house to where he would later show him, had no destination. This was the beginning of the blind journey called Christianity. In Christianity, the caller, the place one is called to, the road map to the place, the Spirit leading one, the distance one has covered and yet to cover, are all unseen and unknown.
🔥🔥It is like travelling on the sea or by air. Such journeys are dangerous because there is no physical road map or route on the physical environment to travel by. So, the path to travel on, the Spirit leading one, the distance one has covered, even the Master who asked one to embark on such a journey, are all inside of the traveller – 1 John 4:4, 1 Cor 13:12. The only part of the journey of faith visible to us, is the structural Church building. Even other travellers with us, which are saved and are sure to get to the prepared place, are also unknown to us, hence we fight ourselves in the Church.
🔥🔥🔥Since the only visibly known part of the journey is the structural Church building, which is our location, we have to remain there in spirit and in truth. Church gatherings being our take off spots, shouldn’t be forsaken by faith travellers, according to Hebrews 10:25. Beloveth, except you depart from the familiar scenes of your life like Abraham did, and begin to live by the road signs of sanctification, mercy, faithfulness, commitment, devotion and dedication to the unseen God, you will never make it to that beautiful home by the blind faith that sees God in darkness.
🙏Dear Lord, even though the way, the place, and the Spirit leading us are invisible, help us to follow your fragrance to the prepared place, in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏Precious father, retain us, your children, in your name which is a strong tower, for us to be saved, in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏🙏Ancient of days, use my faith to open my spiritual eyes to the realities of the power of your leading, in Jesus’ name.
THE BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:
I AM JUSTIFIED BY FAITH!
