Genesis 12 – The Call of Abram
1 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.[a] 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.”[b]
The story Abram – Abraham, is a great reminder of how our God is a BIG BIG God of possibilities and unending, vast and numerous solutions. This great story of the bible teaches us the beauty of what i call Wild Faith. Living from the lens of a victorious person who understands and knows that my God has already done it but I just need to adjust and re-position myself to come to a place of accepting/receiving what God has already done.
In Gods limitless plans he saw Abraham as capable regardless of his old age and sent him packing on a faith filled adventure. This adventure moved Abraham from his place of comfort into a place of destiny because his response to Faith let God know that Abraham understands whom God is and that He indeed has already answered and provided.
Stepping out in Faith is scary when you do not understand Gods word. But if you pay close attention to Abraham and his response to God, you will realise that Abraham completely trusted God as can be seen in Genesis 21 – 22. I want to encourage you today to trust God completely and let go of your own strength. Surrender completely to His will and see if it is not rewarding.
