Faith does not come with a list of guarantees. God speaks, we obey, and often we think we know how God is going to answer. Then He doesn’t show up that way and we’re like, “What the heck, God?!”
Abraham hears God and obeys, leaving his homeland in Genesis 12. It’s a step of faith, dramatic music is playing in the background. Then, v.10 happens, ”A famine struck Canaan”. The promised land is hit hard and Abraham has to go live in Egypt as a foreigner. Discouraged and confused? Probably. Questioning God? Probably.
What step of faith have you taken recently? What “guaranteed thing” hasn’t been there, even though you obeyed?
God is our guarantee. In Ephesians 1 it says that the Holy Spirit is God’s guarantee to us of our inheritance in Him. He is the ONLY guaranteed thing in our life. He will NEVER leave us or forsake us. He will watch over us and provide for all of our needs.
Lean back on God. If He has promised something, He will make it happen in HIS time and in HIS way. Trust it. Relax. And learn to speak Egyptian in the process, Abraham!
