What's the Cost?

I’m Joni Eareckson Tada. We can learn a thing or two from Abraham, the Old Testament patriarch. Remember when God said to him, "Leave your country and your people and go to the land I will show you." And you know what Abraham did? He did not delay, but went right away. But us? All too often, when God tells us to get up and go do something, we shuffle our feet and rationalize that we're not quite certain that we heard God right. We check the inward call so many times, that before you know it, we've reasoned away the command to obey God. Are we willing, like Abraham, to exchange the known present for the unknown future?  Maybe we would if we understood that obedience always means blessing. It'll cost us, but in the long run, God will bless you. If, concerning obedience, your get up and go has got up and gone somewhere, then today, don't delay… go get it.
