Hebrews 6:15 (NET) And so by persevering, Abraham inherited the promise.
For many years, Abraham walked with the Lord and all he had was hope. His major expectation from the Lord was still pending, but He remained patient and persevered till the fulfillment of the promise. Isaac was born as the child of promise. This was proof to Him that every other [eternal] promise was already his.
What would have happened if Abraham stopped persevering? He would have gone back to Haran. He would have stopped living as a sojourner in other people’s land and gone back home where he too was a landlord. History has it that his hometown was far more developed than the places he was sojourning in. He had to put up with a lot of uncivilized men who didn’t fear the Lord.
As you walk with the Lord and you discover His promises(through His word and in the place of fellowship with Him), you may experience the trial of faith and have a long wait period. In this period, either you develop patience which will make you spiritually mature(see James 1:3-4), or you give up and drawback. When a man draws back it means his heart has gone back to the world. He has gone back to Haran.
One of the major attributes of true faith is patience and faithfulness. This is continuing in doing what is right even though the promises may appear to tarry.
Go into today remembering that if you continue diligently in faith and patience, you will see the fulfillment of all that God has promised you.
Prayer: Lord, help me never to drawback. Help me remain in you and be fruitful.
