Where are you going, Abraham?
“I don’t know.”
It wasn’t because he lacked a GPS. It wasn’t because he was too stubborn to ask for directions. Abraham and his wife, Sarah, had packed their bags and forsook the security of a familiar place and a comfortable life without any clue about a destination or where they would lay their heads at night. They did this, not in search of fame or riches (though they would find both), but because a voice in the darkness had said, “Go to a land I will show you.” It wasn’t just any voice. It was, as Andrew Peterson sings, a voice of love and thunder deep. It was the kind of voice you can’t ignore, because to hear it is to be changed by it. It was the voice of the God who created the heavens and the earth, now creating a new life for them both. Abraham may not have known where he was going, but there was no denying the call.
