Welcome to *11/08* and the *INESTIMABLE VIRTUE TO HAVE* is in *Heb.11/08*-
_”By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went.”_

Abraham was one of the greatest iconic figure in the Bible.
He won an everlasting covenant with the Almighty God that made him a channel of blessings to all the nations and generations of the world- _”That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies; And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice.”_ Gen.22:17,18
He was exceedingly blessed by God in all things- _”And Abraham was old, and well stricken in age: and the Lord had blessed Abraham in all things.”_ Gen.24:1
The secret behind his phenomenal prominence, prosperity and posterity was *OBEDIENCE*.

Abraham was a man that obeyed God-:
1. *PROMPTLY*- _”And it came to pass after these things, that God did tempt Abraham, and said unto him, Abraham: and he said, Behold, here I am. And he said, Take now thy son, thine only son Isaac, whom thou lovest, and get thee into the land of Moriah; and offer him there for a burnt offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell thee of. And Abraham rose up early in the morning, and saddled his ass, and took two of his young men with him, and Isaac his son, and clave the wood for the burnt offering, and rose up, and went unto the place of which God had told him.”_ Gen.22:1-3
2. *PERFECTLY*- _”And Abraham took Ishmael his son, and all that were born in his house, and all that were bought with his money, every male among the men of Abraham’s house; and circumcised the flesh of their foreskin in the selfsame day, as God had said unto him.”_ Gen.17:23
3. *PRACTICALLY*- _”For I know him, that he will command his children and his household after him, and they shall keep the way of the Lord , to do justice and judgment; that the Lord may bring upon Abraham that which he hath spoken of him.”_ Gen.18:19

*His timely, true and total obedience won for his lineage divine precepts, preference, presence, possessions, performance and prosperity*- _”Sojourn in this land, and I will be with thee, and will bless thee; for unto thee, and unto thy seed, I will give all these countries, and I will perform the oath which I sware unto Abraham thy father; And I will make thy seed to multiply as the stars of heaven, and will give unto thy seed all these countries; and in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; Because that Abraham obeyed my voice, and kept my charge, my commandments, my statutes, and my laws.”_ Gen.26:3-5

_O Lord let me always promptly, perfectly and practically obey you so as to enjoy your showers of blessings and become channel of blessings to all nations and generations in Jesus name._

Good day
