Now the Lord said to Abram, ‘Go from your country and your kindred and your father’s house to the land that I will show you. I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you, and make your name great, so that you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and the one who curses you I will curse; and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.’ So Abram went, as the Lord had told him; and Lot went with him. Abram was seventy-five years old when he departed from Haran.” (Gen 12: 1-4)

As it says in Hebrews, Abraham “obeyed and went, even though he did not know where he was going.” (Hebr 11: 8) He leaves the seen for the unseen; the known for the unknown. That’s faith. It means letting God do His will in my life, by accepting the responsibilities and people and places to which He has sent me, even though I can’t understand, “Why me?”

So, “doing” God’s will doesn’t mean figuring it out. And faith in Him removes the anxieties of not knowing the “Why,” as well as the “What Next.” Let me renew my faith today, by re-connecting with God in prayer and re-focusing on Him. The Lord wants to “bless” me, so that I myself “will be a blessing,” as He calls me and leads me “to the land” that He “will show me.” Let me let Him do that today, as I get up and do the next right thing, in “meek” acceptance of His will. “Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.” (Mt 5: 5)
