Such a great crowd of witnesses

Hebrews 11:8-10, 16
“By faith Abraham, when called to go to a place he would later receive as his inheritance, obeyed and went, even though he did not know where he was going. 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. For he was looking forward to the city with foundations, whose architect and builder is God…Instead, they were longing for a better country–a heavenly one. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for he has prepared a city for them.”

I found these verses so reassuring today. We are praying that God will lead us to “a city where we can settle.” My heavenly Father will provide an eternal city for me, so how much easier should it be for me to have faith that he will provide a city on earth!
