As sons and daughters of the Most High God, we must believe that He has set an inheritance for us. Hebrews 11:8 states that, “By faith Abraham obeyed when he was called to go out to the place which he would receive as an inheritance. And he went out, not knowing where he was going.” Like Abraham, when we acknowledge God as the Master Architect and the Builder of our lives, it becomes vitally important for us to understand how His building works. It is critical for us to continue to trust and believe in the handiwork of God even if we do not see all of the pieces coming together in a way that makes complete sense to us. When we acknowledge the sovereignty and infinite nature of God, we have no choice but to “worship Him in spirit and in truth” (John 4:23).
Anything that God does comes by His Spirit. What comes by His Spirit is His inheritance for us. When we walk by His Spirit, receiving His promises does not come as such a surprise. We need not strive very hard for that which has already been secured for us through the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the Cross of Calvary. God is a God of action. As His people we are called to act according to His will so that many more of His promises can be released into our lives. God is not slack concerning His promises (2 Peter 3:9). Many times when we ask God to show up, we forget that He already shows up with us wherever that we go because of His Spirit within us. Just like Abraham experienced—a complete mental persuasion—we must believe that the Father will take us beyond what we see to what He has in store for when we obey Him.
