Ruth 2:1-23; Isaiah 42:1-25; 2 Corinthians 2:1-17

Get thee out…unto a land that I will shew thee. Genesis 12:1
Take now thy son…upon one of the mountains which I will tell
thee of. Genesis 22:2

Wouldn’t it be great if God showed and told us exactly where
we were to go and what we were to do in life? Yet, note the order
in both of these verses. First came the instructions to obey: “Get
out”, “Take your son”. Then, following that obedience, came the
directions—not all at once, mind you, but one step at a time. Such
is the walk of faith: one step of obedience brings light for the next
step of obedience. God is not obligated to “show” or “tell” us
anything when we have not yet obeyed in an area of our lives that
God has clearly put His finger on. —Brian Cretney

One step thou seest: then go forward boldly;
Take that, and thy next duty shall be told thee. —Author Unknown
