Abraham went to the land which God planned for him to go by leaving his country, his people, and his father’s household. It is a blessing that he responded to God with obedience. This story reminds us to do what God has told us with strong faith and full obedience. God never promised the absence of storms in our lives, but He did promise to walk with us through them.
The Lord Jesus Christ died on the cross to pay the debt for our sins, and He rose again. He has gone to prepare a place for believers in Heaven, and has promised that He will come again for us. When He comes again, believers will be changed in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye (the time it takes for light to reflect off an eye), at the last trumpet, from corruptible to incorruptible, from mortal to immortal. We will meet Him in the air, and be with Him forevermore! Believe in Him, and share our blessed hope!
