Abraham was confidently looking forward to a city with eternal foundations, a city designed and built by God.Hebrews 11:10
Abraham placed his faith in eternal things. The hope of God was His foundation. He knew that what God promised would not be temporary, but eternal. He knew that joy could not ever be found in earthly things, but in the One who led him to the promised land and would continue to lead him until his death. Abraham was another man who had failures and at times took matters into his own hands, but God always led him back and he followed.
We all have times when we go astray, but what we do after is what matters. When given the chance, will you return to the Lord? Will you follow Him no matter what happens? This life of faith is worth more than anything you can ever find in this world. His eternal city should spur you on!
A Prayer to Remember
May I always follow you and the faith that leads me on. Continue to lead me and guide me. Amen.
