Imagine if you were told to sell your house, car, furniture, appliances, quit your job, and pack up everything you have and move out of your state or better yet, out of your country… but the only catch was, that you didn’t know where you were going. Would you do it? Most will quickly say, “of course not!”
But that is exactly what Abraham did. He was 75yrs old and God told him to leave everything he had, knew, and was comfortable with and go to a place that God said in His own words…
Get out of your country,
From your family
And from your father’s house,
To a land that I will show you. Genesis 12:1
Now, how on earth could Abraham be sure of what the future would hold? How could he know that this “land” even existed? How could he be so crazy as to leave everything? He could by FAITH. Faith gives a person the courage to do what in the worlds eyes seems crazy, but believing that God will never ignore their request.
Those who are willing to be lead by God to the place that HE WILL SHOW them, are the ones that will truly see His greatness. Its called sacrifice… all your trust, for all that God has for you.
May the God of the Bible Bless You
