God told Abraham to leave his kinfolks, leave his home country, leave and go out into a place that He
would show him. And so the Bible said that Abraham went out, not knowing where he was going.
ALL Abraham needed to know were 2 things:
1) He is in the wrong place and needs to move, and 2) God said, “I’ll show you.
But, so many people won’t do that.
“Well, that’s ridiculous. Where am I going?”
>>God says to,
“Leave and I will show you.”
>>But they say,
“But that doesn’t make sense. I’ve got to make plans. I’ve got a family, kids.
I’ve got this and that. What about my work, etc.”
People don’t realize, that now you’re in darkness, because all this stuff you don’t know and you don’t
understand. You won’t get Light looking into darkness.
Faith is NOT optional. God requires us to walk by Faith. And you will not get Him to change or
alter it at all. HE will open the door. HE will give you a direction.
>>And you’ll look and say,
“What’s over there?"
And there will be silence… and you’ll get nothing. Because, you have all you need to walk by Faith. And it’s
the people that will NOT lean on their own understanding and NOT delve into reasoning, that will just trust
Him and say, “Well, He loves me and He wouldn’t lead me wrong.”
That’s the key. He loves me. When He moves me, He will take care of me. When I DON’T move, is
where I get in trouble, because now I’m in rebellion. Rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft. So, all you need to
do is take 1 step.
All the Lord needs is for you to take baby steps, and then the Lord will do the rest. But you have to
take that step of Faith in obedience.
“That’s all I need. I’ll teach you the rest of it. Just keep walking.”
But if you start questioning God, then you are NOT walking by Faith.
That is negative. Again, you’re focusing on what you don’t understand. And so many people, the Lord has
already told them what to do and they got excited… but then, they got to thinking and reasoning. And then,
you’ll talk yourself out of it.
So then, they put everything on hold, until they can understand enough. And this is a BIG mistake! Just
because you don’t have Light in one area, that doesn’t release you from acting on the Light that you have.
>>People are thinking,
“Well, I have to understand this area, before I can make a move.”
NO! If you understand this, ACT on it!!!
You cannot stay static! You can’t sit still and progress in Faith and in God. Particularly when you’re trying
to protect yourself. Jesus said, if you try to protect yourself you’ll lose it.
What you compromise to keep, you’re going to lose it in 2011. On the other hand, if you’ll walk by Faith,
everything’s going to be all right.
