Appreciating surprises requires at least two elements. A high level of trust and a high level of insight.
God involves Himself in our lives. He told Abram to go and leave behind his country, people and family. When Abram obeyed, he was accepting the uncertainty of the journey.
God told Abram to look at what He was doing. God told Abram to look at the stars in the sky and that his offspring would be that numerous.
The covenant that God made with Abraham overflows to us. You can trust God to go where he invites you to go. God always does the heavy lifting, just look. God gives us a purpose to show His nature to others.
