The LORD had said to Abram, “Leave your native country, your relatives, and your father’s family, and go to the land that I will show you.
(Genesis 12:1 NLT)
Like Abram, there was a time when I was called to take a step of faith. Although I was grateful that God wasn’t asking me to leave my country or family, I still felt apprehensive. I believe Abram was fearful too, especially since he was leaving the familiar and going into the unknown, but he took a step of faith anyway. As a result, the land he was shown was promised to him and his descendants as a permanent possession. Therefore, I’ve learned to follow Abram’s example because I’ve come to realize that if Abram could trust God and never be disappointed, so can I and so can you.
Do what God says and leave the rest to Him
