Sometimes God asks us to take a step of faith. He wants to see us grow in our trust of him and for that to happen, it takes us doing something we haven’t done before. We need to go forward if we are going to continue to grow. Maybe you are at that point in your life? Perhaps God is trying to get you out of your rut and breathe some new life into you. Go forward with where he is taking you. It might be scary at first but it will better in the end.
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. And I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you and make your name great, so that you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and him who dishonors you I will curse, and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”
Blessed by Going
God asked Abram to take a giant leap of faith by moving to a land where he had no family. He was taking Abram into the promised land of Israel. Because Abram was so faithful, God blessed him by turning his family into a great nation, as many as the sands on the beach. They would be God’s chosen people and whoever blessed them were blessed. They are still God’s people today. He has not forsaken them.
Where is God calling you to go today? When He calls us to go forward He will go before us and will bless us for going. It may not be an easy path, it might be an arduous journey, but the blessings that come during the journey and at the end will far surpass the challenges. Trust him today and step out. Go in prayer and faith. Don’t be miss what He has for you. Push out the doubts in your mind and go forward today. Abraham left his home and traveled to a new land. God may not be calling you to move, but He is calling you to go forward.
