God’s call is usually clear and simple. When we follow his lead, he lays out a path and a mission that are not confusing or buried in a pile of reasons and excuses. We simply are told to Go and do. His calling rarely includes a why… but it always includes a promise. Abram was told to go and God would bless him, his family, those that blessed him and ultimately the world. God kept his word.
In our lives, he calls us to seek him and follow him. He promises that if we do, he will give us a full and meaningful life here and eternal life with him in heaven. He does not provide many why’s in our circumstances, but he does provide the promise that he will be with us, provide for us and build into us the things we need to be complete in him.
Help me, Lord to be willing to follow wherever you lead.
12 The Lord had said to Abram, “Go from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you.
2 “I will make you into a great nation,
and I will bless you;
I will make your name great,
and you will be a blessing.
3 I will bless those who bless you,
and whoever curses you I will curse;
and all peoples on earth
will be blessed through you. ”
4 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. 5 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.
