(4) So Abram went, just as the Lord had spoken to him. Also Lot went with him. (Now Abram was 75 years old when he departed from Haran.) (6) Abram passed through the land as far as the place of Shechem, as far as the Moreh’s big tree, (The Canaanites were in the land then.) (7) Then the Lord appeared to Abram, and said, “I will give this land to your seed.” So there he built an altar to Adonai, who had appeared to him. (TLV)
Understanding and successfully completing God’s calling on our lives is a process. You might say it is a progressive revelation. As we see in Abram’s case, as he acted in faith over time, God rewarded him with more confirmation of and information about the purpose and calling to which he was being faithful. Applying that principle to my life, I try to regularly encourage myself to keep moving forward in faith, even if I do not have a clear picture or understanding of the path in front of me. If I choose to never give up and trust God in the process, like Abraham, I believe that His purpose and plan for my life will be revealed, understood and accomplished.
