“Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will shew thee… So Abram departed, as the LORD had spoken unto him; and Lot went with him: and Abram was seventy and five years old when he departed out of Haran” - Genesis 12:1 & 4.
When Abraham was instructed by God to leave his home, he didn’t hesitate or make excuses. He got up and left not knowing what would be ahead on his journey.
Do you trust the Lord enough to get up and move when He says move without any hesitation, questions, and excuses? Do you expect that whatever blessings the Lord promises would come without doing anything on your part?
If you received a call today, and were told that a piece of land, or a large sum of money, or perhaps both were given to you through an inheritance, but you would have to travel a long distance to claim it - would you just sit there and do nothing?
When the Lord is compelling us to move in a certain direction, it is not for us to try and figure out what He is doing, and why He is doing it. It is for us to trust Him who Only knows the way we must travel to get us to the place of our destiny.
I know it’s easier said than done when we are actually faced with this kind of challenge. Should we go, or shouldn’t we? Is this the voice of God, or the voice of the enemy trying to set me up? The good thing about having a relationship with the Lord is, we can talk to Him about anything, even those things we are unsure of.
My prayer for you is, as you receive confirmation of God’s call to “get up and follow Him”, you will do so with confidence and courage.
