Abram Went as the Lord told Him–Genesis 12 Part 1

It really can be that simple. God directs and we follow.  God told Abram to go to Canaan, as he had told Abram’s father Terah.  Without hesitation or delay, Abram gathered his family and his stuff and headed out on a journey that would change Humanity from then on.  Abram left with a promise–I will make you a great nation!  What an awesome legacy, and it started with obedience.

In our lives, we are faced daily with the opportunity to simply trust God and follow his  lead.  Trust me, while it is simple, it certainly is not easy! as one reads about the life of Abram, it is obvious his simple trust in God was rarely easy.  The amazing quality of life and the legacy Abram was able to leave, far outweighs the trials and sadness he faced.

We have to walk the journey as Abram did–Always trusting God. When we do, we will live a life that is full, meaningful and bigger than ourselves and greater than we could imagine.  Never give up and never give in–walk as Abram in the path God lays out!

God Bless You

The Lord had said to Abram, “Go from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you.

“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.[a]
I will bless those who bless you,
    and whoever curses you I will curse;
and all peoples on earth
    will be blessed through you.”[b]

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.


This is an amazing Journey. I hope you will hear from the Lord, as you seek Him with your heart. Matthew 6:33
