Get Up And Go!

Sometimes you have to move from a place of stagnation to discover the blessings that God has already prepared for you.

God changed Abram’s name to Abraham, which means ‘Father of all Nations.’

He received this title when he was old and still childless but Abraham believed God and it was accounted unto him for righteousness.

Abraham trusted God for the impossible in the midst of lack. He trusted God without wavering.

So when God told him to move from his familiar country leaving friends and family behind to travel to an unknown place he did not question the words of God but immediately move.

The Lord said to Abram,

“Leave your country, your people and your father’s household and go to a land that I will show you.” (Genesis 12:1 NKJV).

Abraham obeyed and moved.


Belief without evidence!

Trust without signs!

Hope without knowledge.

Your familiar and intimate God commanded, “Move!”

Go without wavering!

To the unfamiliar;

To the unknown.

Total dependence!

Complete trust!

Steadfast obedience;

Countless blessings.

Unexpected obstacles await.

Trials must not be a deterrent;

For diversion will bring forth plagues and tempest.

Out of Egypt, you must depart;

The mission is not yet complete.

Onward you go

From strength to strength

To a land of untold bounty;

And to a city whose builder and maker is God.

Your Jehovah Jireh.

  1. I can relate to this. Years ago, God directed my husband and I to sell our home and belongings and go to the Philippines to teach God’s Word on the island of Panay. Then, about four years ago – retired and comfortable in old age – God led us from our home in Illinois to Michigan where we support our daughter in her role as pastor of a small but thriving church. Though we cannot do what we once did, we are here to pray with her, and are many times her “gofer” opening the doors for special meetings, picking supplies, even cleaning the church – whatever needs done. It was a little scary at our age to move from our familiar home away from friends to a place where we knew no one other than our daughter and her family. But God is faithful! Even at our age, we find “from strength to strength.”

    • This touched me .
      I ma reminded of Caleb who at the 80s still asked God for the promised mountain.

      Joshua 14:10-12
      [10]And now, behold, the Lord has kept me alive, as He said, these forty-five years, ever since the Lord spoke this word to Moses while Israel wandered in the wilderness; and now, here I am this day, eighty-five years old.
      [11]As yet I am as strong this day as on the day that Moses sent me; just as my strength was then, so now is my strength for war, both for going out and for coming in.
      [12]Now therefore, give me this mountain of which the Lord spoke in that day; for you heard in that day how the Anakim were there, and that the cities were great and fortified. It may be that the Lord will be with me, and I shall be able to drive them out as the Lord said.”

    • Powerful testimony, my dear. It goes to show that you are not too old for God to use. I am sure that your daughter is more than greatful to have you and your husband as her advisor and intercessors. May the Lord continues to give you the strength to do His work.

  2. Get up and go! Obedience is vital to our walk with God. Being too comfortable can cause us to miss blessings. Obedience allows us to experience the adventures God created us for while fulfilling His purposes.
