We’d all like to have a success story like Abraham’s? He had fame, great riches, and ‘was even called the friend of God’ (James 2:23 NLT). It doesn’t get better than that! But Abraham’s story begins with these words: ‘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.’ How did he do it? By faith! Why do we resist change? Doubt and fear! We fear personal loss. Anytime change is on the horizon, the first question that pops into our minds is, ‘How will it affect me?’ For example, someone might approach their co-worker and say, ‘I just heard the boss is having to make some people redundant.’ The co-worker’s first thought probably isn’t, ‘I wonder what triggered that decision?’ or, ‘I bet the boss feels bad about having to do that!’ No, probably their first thought is, ‘Am I at risk?’ That’s just human nature. The second we face change we can quickly feel alone and helpless. Where do we find strength in such moments? In God! His promise is: ‘“I will never leave you nor forsake you.” So we may boldly say, “The Lord is my helper; I will not fear. What can man do to me?”’ (Hebrews 13:5-6 NKJV). Relax! Whatever is unknown to us is fully known to God. And the One who has always taken care of us has already gone ahead to prepare the way (see Deuteronomy 31:8).
