What thoughts are dominant in your mind right now? What is distracting you? Bring those to God now and ask Him to focus your heart to hear from you. After you sense a focus on Him, read the passage below using your Bible Study Insert.
Now, you need to understand this about good old Father Abraham: Abe is not a pillar of spiritual perfection. Abraham gets quite a few things wrong. He lies and says his wife is his sister so he won’t be killed (he does this not once, but twice). Then he has a son with his servant Hagar because he doesn’t want to wait on God’s timing. But he also gets some things RIGHT and it’s one, big issue and decision that made all the difference in Abe’s life.
At 75 years old, Abe chose to bet the farm on God. He followed God’s lead. He took a leap of faith. He stepped out. Yes he blew it at times (and again, and again, and again…), but he kept following. He didn't stop. He didn’t quit. He persevered.
Think about your life right now: Where is God calling you to persevere? What is He speaking to your heart about right now?
