Book Review

One very positive thing Abraham did was that he did not remain at the point God first met him. God has spoken and instructed him on the next plan. The evidence that he believed God was his immediate obedience. By faith Abraham, when called to go to a place he would later receive as his inheritance, obeyed and went, even though he did not know where he was going. Heb 11:8 NIV
I have heard teachings that suggested that we should not start anything with God unless we have all the details. I am yet to meet a man who had all the details before he started doing anything for God. What we see at the outset is really too bleak to carry us on the assignment. What we must look for and be sure of is to know if the voice we heard is God’s voice. That is all the security you need. If it’s God’s voice, and you are sure it is, then prove your faith by moving in obedience. It is true like we said earlier, that Moses and Abraham had made some mistakes that had delayed the fulfillment of the promise, yet God never abandoned them. He stayed with them until things fell into place for the fulfillment of the promise.
There are many things God has provided that are only available at the point of takeoff. You would never know what God has in stock for you until you obey.
