The Journey of This Life: Walking with Messiah

mountain trailYahuwah [the LORD] blessed Abraham,
and made a Covenant with him:
that he and his descendants would receive
the promise of a great Blessing.

Yahuwah blessed Messiah Yahushua [Christ Jesus],
and made a Covenant with Him and His followers:
that they too would receive
the promise made to Abraham,
of a great Blessing.

The promise of Blessing made to Abraham
is given to all who have the faith of Abraham,
and it is sure and steadfast to all who follow Messiah,
to walk with Him in the journey of this life.

What makes the patriarch, Abraham, so blessed?
We know he was blessed because he believed God.
We know he was faith-FULL.
Is there something more?
Notice this verse:

By FAITH Abraham,
when he was called to go out
into a place
which he should after receive for an inheritance,
he obeyed; and he went out,
not knowing where he went.
(Hebrews 11:8).

Abraham went out . . . not knowing.
Abraham did not . . . ‘think about it.’
Abraham did not . . . ‘put it off until later.’
Abraham did not . . . ‘wait until tomorrow.’
Abraham went out . . .
Not knowing any of the details!

We are all called by God
to believe in Messiah,
to come to Him,
and then to go out . . .
go out of this world’s prideful, lustful ways.

When we look to Yahuwah Elohim [the LORD God],
then He begins the process of calling us
and bringing us out of “Egypt” —
out of worldiness and corruption and sin.

God calls us to come out
so that He can bring us in —
to set us on the journey into His kingdom
of righteousness, peace, and joy.

We are all called by God.
The question is, will we go out — even if we do not know?
Can we make the journey that faithful Abraham did,
to obey God — and to go out, not knowing?

Will we go out to Him?
Will we go to Him, outside the camp
— outside our comfort zone
— not knowing where He will lead us,
bearing the reproach He endured?
(Hebrews 13:13).

“If it is absolutely necessary to you
to first know the answers to life’s questions,
then forget the journey.
You will never make it.
Because life’s journey is a journey of unknowables —
a journey of unanswered questions,
of enigmas and mysteries,
of incomprehensibles,
and, most of all,
a journey of things unfair.”
— Madame Guyon

Our journey through this life is a journey of unknowables.
For Abraham, his journey was filled with unknowables!
Many times, his questions went unanswered.

And like Abraham,
we too will have a journey of unknowables,
we too will have questions that go unanswered.

But we can be sure of one thing
the one and only thing
that is sure and unchanging:
God’s Word.

God’s Word,
His laws, commandments, and precepts,
are permanent, solid, reliable,
and eternal;
and in the journey of this life,
we can count on God’s absolute promise:

  • God is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him. (Hebrews 11:6; see also Genesis 15:1)

Faithful Abraham believed in, and trusted in
the one and only thing
that is unchanging and dependable:
the Word of God
— living, powerful, piercing, discerning,
and sharper than any twoedged sword!

As we too believe in and trust in Messiah,
then we too will find the one and only thing
that is unchanging, and completely dependable:
the Word of God
— as we walk with Messiah in the journey of this life.

Devotion:
A kiss is not 'just a kiss.' When a kiss happens, something very mysterious and significant happens. In the same way, when we give our heart to Yahushua Messiah, we enter into a mysterious and significant covenant relationship with Him.
