“ By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went.” (Hebrews 11:8).
It is faith without sight. When we can see, it is not faith but reasoning. When crossing the Atlantic you will observe this very principle of faith. You see no path upon the sea nor sign of the shore. And yet day by day you will mark your path upon the chart exactly as if you were following a great chalk line upon the sea, and when you come within miles of land you will know where you were exactly as if you had seen it all three thousand miles ahead from England to St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
How had you measured and marked your course? Day by day your captain had taken his instruments, and looking up to the sky had fixed his course by the sun. He was sailing by the heavenly, not the earthly lights. So faith looks up and sails on, by God’s great Sun, not seeing one shoreline or earthly lighthouse or path upon the way. Often its steps seem to lead into utter uncertainty, and even darkness and disaster. But He opens the way and often makes such midnight hours the very gates of day. Let us go forth this day, not knowing but trusting.
Are you willing to take this challenge walking by faith in God’s word and living for Him daily? If you haven’t started I urge you to find a ship with a chart and compass and shout “Jesus Saviour pilot me.” Remembering that only Him and Him alone you will find all you need for this earthly journey into the heavenly.
