Text: Genesis 12:1-8
The Holy Bible make it clear that Abraham stepped out in faith and began moving towards his divine destiny. Walking in faith caused him to fulfill his purpose and destiny. Had he not done so, he might have died in Haran just like his father.
Stepping out in faith will not only cause you to reach your destination but also make you to fulfill and possess your possessions. You will never reach your destiny by remaining where you are spiritually. All throughout scripture, God responds to those who move out in faith.
“Jesus said unto him, if thou can believe, all things are possible to him that believe.” Mark 9:23.
ALL things are possible for you to achieve your dreams as long as you believe. Faith is the power that guarantee possibility.
“Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.” Matthew 7:7-8
We are told to ask, seek, and knock–then we receive the answer. We are told to give and we will receive. When you come boldly before the throne, you find grace to help in time of need. When you come to Christ for salvation, He extends forgiveness. As you forgive others, you are forgiven.
In first Kings 17:8-16, the poor widow made dinner for the prophet first, then her own needs were met. She did it in faith. She acted in faith and she got uncommon provision that speak after her till today. Your provision is certain as long as you believe in the God who owns everything. Heaven will not close against anyone that hope and believe in only God for his/her provisions.
Another woman in 2 Kings 4:1-7 was in debt even her husband died in debt, but because she took a step-in faith, she was overcoming the debt penalty that has been arranged for her. The woman in debt was told to get empty pots. When she did, God filled them. Have you ever thinking how many times you have disobey the voice of God? Have you ever see yourself as the enemy of yourself because of disobedience to the man or prophet of God? On several occasions you have been warned to stop drinking beers, womanizing and smoking but you refuse to listen and obey.
Remember the four lepers in Old Testament times who decided they would die if they remained where they were, alone and without basic provisions (2 Kings 7). It was risky to go into the enemy’s camp, but they rose up and did so. They made the first move, and their destinies were changed when they found a deserted camp filled with abundant provisions. Do you know there are unlimited provisions ahead of you but you could not get it until you take step forward from where you are? A step of faith is what you needed to accomplish your dream and heart desire. If you fail to take a step of faith forward, likewise you will die spiritually if you remain where you are. Your vision will fade, and
your dream will die. When you start to move towards your destiny, God begins to move in your behalf. When you make a move in faith, God responds. God will not release prove Himself mightily in your life if you do not act in faith.
