Genesis 12:1 (KJV); Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee:
When God told Abraham to leave the home he had known for years for a land the Lord would show him, God did not give him specifics.
Some people assume that God’s leading to Abraham would have sounded like “travel forty kilometres to the north, turn left, climb up the mountain, descend into the valley, and turn right, there you will find the land I prepared for you.”
While there are instances where He may direct a man in this manner, this is not the case a lot of the time.
When God is dealing with men of faith, He knows that the GPS is internal and Spirit-led. Such a man will know at what precise point to turn left, move up the mountain or slope down into the valley.
This was Abraham’s experience in Genesis 22. Once again, God did not give him specifics. The Bible says in verse 2, “And he said, Take now thy son, thine only son Isaac, whom thou lovest, and get thee into the land of Moriah; and offer him there for a burnt offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell thee of.”
In Genesis 22:4, the scriptures say, “Then on the third day Abraham lifted up his eyes, and saw the place afar off.”
Did God tell Him “Now this is the place I promised to tell you about?” No. Abraham simply looked up and knew.
What is the lesson for us? When you obey as an act of faith, faith will also take care of the details.

GOLDEN NUGGET: When you obey as an act of faith, faith will also take care of the details.
PRAYER: Beloved Father, I thank You for this word. Thank You for divine direction and how You order my steps. I choose to obey Your every direction and step out in faith because I know that I am led by Your Spirit, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
