Tuesday – March 29th – Hebrews 11:8     -----    

11:8)    By faith Abraham obeyed when he was called to go out to the place which he would receive as an inheritance. And he went out, not knowing where he was going.
 
The Daily Walk Bible inspirational thought for today:
      THE ALTERNATIVE TO DISCIPLINE IS DISASTER.*

     Happy Tuesday to you! If you live in the St. Louis area and are even a passing fan of baseball you might be one of those folks who believe that all was made right in the sports world yesterday. Yes, Albert is back in a Cardinal uniform for this season. The “prodigal son” has returned home for what will probably be a final curtain call. Many of you who, up to yesterday morning, might have given little thought about going to a Cards game will now be seriously checking pitching matchups, and if it is a lefty for the opposing team, you will probably secure tickets in hopes Albert will DH. If you are wondering how Albert fits into a scripture blog, well there really is no connection except that you might notice more than the usual number of smiles around the Lou. And with happy smiles comes the opportunity to witness to our faith. The Apostle Paul states that to be an effective witness for the Lord we need to be able to speak the language of the people. So, use the news about Albert as great insight into how to connect with others this week as you work to introduce them to Jesus. 😊

     In our pick verse today, our author begins a short segment on lifting up the faith of Abraham as a perfect example of trusting God. Simple stated, Abraham believed God’s promise without first seeing evidence or results. Abraham shows us that faith leads us into living a life of obedience. He believed in God and that God would bless him with the promised inheritance of family and land. Therefore, out of faith filled obedience he left his home, his security, his relatives, and his country, even though he did not know his destination. He placed complete trust in believing that God would deliver even though he and Sara were childless and homeless. Abraham didn’t know how God would bring about these blessings, but he trusted God in every way. Being a fully committed follower of Jesus is a step-in faith. Yes, we know our final step is promised to be into the Kingdom of Heaven, but we say yes to Jesus without knowing from day to day, or even from minute to minute, the path our journey will take. Faith requires trust, and trust requires faith. Abraham had both.

Blessings
