Abram moved forward—He went into Canaan simply because God told him to.  Once he moved forward, God promised him all the land he could imagine would be his.  Abram kept moving into the land simply trusting God to provide all he promised.

That is the essence of faith.  When we walk in a way that is simply trusting God even though we do not know what lies ahead, he cannot help but want to bless us and exceed our expectations.  The wonder he creates and the promises he exceeds are the greatest banners to his majesty he can provide.  When we fail to trust him we take away his opportunity to do wonders.  So when we walk, we walk trusting him to give him the opportunity to bless us mightily.

God Bless You 

So Abram went, as the Lord had told him; and Lot went with him. Abram was seventy-five years old when he set out from Harran. He took his wife Sarai, his nephew Lot, all the possessions they had accumulated and the people they had acquired in Harran, and they set out for the land of Canaan, and they arrived there.

Abram traveled through the land as far as the site of the great tree of Moreh at Shechem. At that time the Canaanites were in the land. The Lord appeared to Abram and said, “To your offspring[c] I will give this land.” So he built an altar there to the Lord, who had appeared to him.

From there he went on toward the hills east of Bethel and pitched his tent, with Bethel on the west and Ai on the east. There he built an altar to the Lord and called on the name of the Lord.

Then Abram set out and continued toward the Negev.
