Frederick Buechner: “Faith is not being sure where you are going, but going anyway because God gave the directions.”
This quote reminds me of my move to Arizona. I obeyed the call to move even before I knew where I was going. I packed up my household with my girls by faith that God would have shown me where we were moving to by the time we got in the moving truck.
All I had was the name of a city. I was able to figure out the location eventually from where the city was sitting on the map. From there I figured where the Lord wanted me to move with my family.
Can you walk by faith without knowing the final destination?
Then I got in the truck, fully packed…with no money. I believed by faith that God would provide where he was guiding. So I stopped at the bank on the way to my new home in a new city. I applied for a loan.
As I was driving from California to Arizona. So I continued my journey not knowing how things would work out. While I was driving to Arizona, I got the call on my cell phone that my loan was approved.
I arrived in Arizona just before the rental office closed to sign the lease, pay the man, and get the keys to our new home.
