Did you know that living by faith is a journey and not a destination? For Abraham and Sarah, that required putting themselves in the hands of God. It was being willing to go on a journey into the unknown, wherever God would lead them.

Faith was trusting God against all odds and the uncertainties of life. Yes, there would be many difficulties. Mistakes would be made along the way. There would be moments when faith would be tested and anxieties would be overwhelming.

However, it was the promise that they would be the father and mother of great nations that kept them moving forward. At times, it may have seemed like a ridiculous dream. Through long seasons of waiting, they could have abandoned hope. But instead, they continued on the journey and saw God’s promise come to pass.
