“‘So he left the country of the Chaldees and moved to Haran. After the death of his father, he immigrated to this country where you now live, but God gave him nothing, not so much as a foothold. He did promise to give the country to him and his son later on, even though Abraham had no son at the time.'” Acts 4:4-5

Abraham’s family must have thought he was completely out of his mind. After all, God had told him to pack up and head out to a place he’d never been before. And Abraham went, despite the fact that he knew he wouldn’t have a thing to his name when he got there – nothing except for God’s promise. Abraham went strictly on the promise of God, and he was richly rewarded.

What has God promised us today? Is it the salvation of a loved one? Provision? Peace in the midst of a storm? Whatever it is, you can be assured of one thing: God always follows through on His promises. Scripture bears it out time and time again, and so does our personal experience.

I encourage you to dig into the word, seek God’s face, and hold on to the promises He gives you. Even if it makes zero sense to those around you, the blessed assurance He gives will see you through your trials and on to victory.
