Abraham Fell on His Face and Laughed
Abraham laughed out loud, not in disrespect, but in amazement as what God was promising He would do.
Even more interesting in this chapter, is the time when God says nothing. Abraham must remember God's promise, everyday for 13 years, before God confirms it again.
You must find a way to be comfortable in the silence, when it comes to your relationship with God. God is God, even when He is silent.
So, what do you do when He is silent? Think of a navigation system, when you're in the act of completing the last directive, the system does not continue to the next directive until the previous one is done. The same holds for God and when He is silent in your life.
When God is silent, you must be sure that you've done everything He's already told you to do, because you will likely not get further direction, until the last thing He told you has been done... hence the silence.
If He hasn't spoken or given you a revelation, you must still walk in the direction He pointed you. He'll let you know when it's changed, until then you don't need another update--you have His Word to keep you during those times.
Keep going forward. Keep doing what He told you, until He tells you to do something else. Period.
Where most people mess up, is they don't maintain until further direction. We lack the patience and faith to keep moving forward, until further direction.
God did not promise us a step-by-step blueprint to walking our journey. He speaks to us, guides us at pivotal moments in our life--like He did for Abraham.
