For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light:
Abraham was seventy-five years old in Genesis, chapter twelve, when the Lord came to him and told him to leave his country, his kindred and his father’s house and to go to a land that He would show him. No wonder Abraham is known as the Father of Faith. He was well advanced in years, told to leave everything he knew and to go somewhere that he would be shown after he separated from everything comfortable. Now the Lord wasn’t telling Abraham do something that Abraham could not do. The Lord knew Abraham could do this or He would not have told Abraham to do so. Abraham was the one who didn’t know if he could do it. Yet because Abraham was so committed and dedicated to the Lord he struck out in faith, believing that the Lord would be with him in all that he had been commanded to do.
Sometimes the Holy Spirit of God comes and gently urges us into a course of action and sometimes the Lord commands us urgently into a new place we know nothing of. Such as when situations beyond our control force us into a course of action or a path of life we would have never chosen on our own. Abraham discovered what he was really made of when the Lord commanded this separation into his life.
We once were estranged from our owner and creator, the Lord of Glory, but now we have accepted His love displayed at Calvary and allowed Him to live in our life. It is time in these uncertain days to separate from the comfortable circumstances we have known and follow the Lord, humbly and gratefully, displaying our faith and love in Him, as He leads us from fountain to fountain.
Psalm 36:9 says, “For with thee is the fountain of life: in thy light shall we see light.” We have been translated into His marvelous Kingdom of Light, let us walk as children of the light.
