OUR FATHER WHO IS PLEASED BY OUR FAITH
The book of Hebrews chapter 11 verse 9, speaking of the patriarch Abraham leaving his home to settle in a foreign land, says this;
By faith he made his home in the promised land like a stranger in a foreign country; he lived in tents, as did Isaac and Jacob, who were heirs with him of the same promise.
Faith was what Abraham was exercising when he left the security of his homeland to dwell in a distant land as a stranger.
On the strength of the promise of God, he sojourned sight-unseen to a land he was promised and lived in tents as did his descendants Isaac and Jacob who were in line for the same promise.
By holding steadfast to the promise, they overlooked the fact that they lived in tents and instead focused on the greater eternal promise that the Lord had given them a glimpse of and it was faith that they leaned on to trust the hope even when they did not plainly see the final result.
The life of faith is one where the life in tents (or, as it were, the temporal life in the body), may hold no semblance to the eternal promise but we believe and look forward to the day when the incorruptible is revealed.
