He knew God to be his great, good and faithful Friend. Taking Him at His word, he stepped out from all that he knew and loved and went forth upon an unknown pathway with none but God.In addition to trusting in the Word of God, have we learned to lean our whole weight upon God? We are told that Abraham glorified God by a life of faith. The truest way to glorify God is to let the world see what He is and what He can do. God does not so much want us to do things as to let people see what He can do.
God is not looking for extraordinary characters as His instruments, but He is looking for humble instruments through whom He can be honored throughout the ages, the ones who live the life of faith in Him
For the Scriptures tell us, "Abraham believed God, and God counted him as righteous because of his faith.
