So Abraham left the land of the Chaldeans and lived in Haran until his father died. Then God brought him here to the land where you now live. “But God gave him no inheritance here, not even one square foot of land. God did promise, however, that eventually the whole land would belong to Abraham and his descendants—even though he had no children yet.
Acts 7:4‭-‬5

When we obey God, a lot of us want immediate blessings. We obeyed God yesterday so, we want our blessings today.

As we can see with Abraham, there will be times where we’ll obey God but we’ll have to wait on the promise. Abraham obeyed God, but he didn’t receive what God promised until later.

Just because there’s a delay after we obey doesn’t mean the promise isn’t coming. It will come to pass. While we wait, let’s renew our mind to the truth in God’s word instead of looking at the circumstances. Let’s consistently confess what we desire to see instead of talking about what’s not happening. And let’s praise and worship God as an act of faith to remind ourselves where all our blessings come from.

The promise may not come immediately. Be patient, it’s on its way.
