Genesis 12:1 -
"Now the Lord said to Abram, “Go from your country and your kindred and your father's house to the land that I will show you."
Who is God?
He tells us what we need to leave behind in order to follow Him.
As we lose sight of what we love the most, we find Him.
He invites us to begin a journey without knowing where we are going.
He bestows blessing and greatness so that we become a blessing.
He establishes a people that will mediate divine blessing to all the families of the earth.
He responds to obedience with further revelation.
He calls us to build places of worship.
His purposes are greater than our doubt or deception.
Father, it is my great honor to follow You into the unknown. I trust you. You are beyond any country, kindred, or house, that I leave behind. Hear my cry to be blessed, and to be a blessing. Show me any area of disobedience that is hindering me along the way. May I look back at a life of building places of worship. Oh that it would be said of me, that I went "as the Lord had told him."
