Hebrews 11:1-3, 8-16, By Faith, Following His Leading  

Faith is the courage to act on what we don’t see. Today’s story begins with Abraham and Sarah, and it begins with the simple affirmation of faith when they were called. In simple faith, the Abrahams and Sarahs of every generation have trusted God, packed up and followed to a land that God would show them. Abraham and Sarah went out when they were called, not knowing where they were to go, trusting God for a future.  

They went out living in tent, looking for the city. The Hebrew writer says: By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a foreign land, living in tents with Isaac and Jacob, heirs with him of the same promise. For he looked forward to a city which has foundations, whose builder and maker is God. Abraham and Sarah knew the difference between temporary tents and those convictions and values which give life its lasting foundations, as if its builder and maker was God.  

Living in tents, looking for the city, so Abraham and Sarah went out, backing into the future. Remember, God knows the future as well as the past. Therefore, the most sensible thing in the world is to place our hand in his and move out in faith. It might be the fool who keeps your hand out of the hand of God and tries to walk it by yourself. IL-WOONG.
