“By faith he left Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king; for he endured, as seeing Him who is unseen” (Hebrews 11:27).

We learn from Moses that faith isn’t so much a map, offering a specific course to a desired destination, as it is a guide for journeying forward. Like the wilderness wanderings that would lead to an eventual Land of Promise, life proves to be no less a nomadic path; filled with anxiety, uncertainty, disappointment, grief, and the most unexpected twists and turns. Faith may not take you on the most direct route, but it is guaranteed to deliver you to the place God would have you to be. We must keep leaving what is behind us if we are to ever experience what God has set before us.
