“By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went” (Hebrews 11:8).
Today’s Morsel: When Abraham left home after being called of God, God chose the land He would give him. The psalmist states, “He shall choose our inheritance for us, the excellency of Jacob whom he loved. Selah” (Psalms 47:4). Think about that for a moment. God will choose our inheritance for us. But the question is, will we let Him? Jesus said, “Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also” (John 14:1-3). The writer of Hebrews tells us, “These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth. For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country. And truly, if they had been mindful of that country from whence they came out, they might have had opportunity to have returned. But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city” (Hebrews 11:13-16). Aren’t you glad that God has chosen your inheritance for you?
Sing: There’s a city far beyond the starry skies, there’s a city where there will never come a night. If we are faithful we shall go there by and by. Tis the city where the Lamb is the Light.
In the city where the Lamb is the light. In the city where there cometh no night. I’ve a mansion over there, and when free from toil and care, I am going where the Lamb is the Light.
Thought For Today: Let God choose your inheritance for you. (Parker)
