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.
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.
