“Then the Lord said to Abram, ‘Leave your country, your people and your father’s household and go to the land I will show you.’”
Sometimes God speaks to us very clearly and we choose either to listen or not to listen. In Genesis 12 God spoke to Abram very clearly and Abram listened. Abram’s life would have been completely different if he had ignored or disregarded God’s calling. But Abram listened. Even though he had never seen the land and even though he was leaving behind everything he had ever known Abram listened. Life was not easy for Abram (life is never easy for anyone), but God blessed Abram because he listened.
What is God calling you to do? Are you ignoring him?
