Do what God says

30 November 2023 ‘The Lord came to Abram in a vision.’ Genesis 15:1 NKJV

When God gives you a vision for your life, He doesn’t give you all the details up front. He simply says, ‘Don’t be afraid; just do what I say, and I will guide you and prosper you.’ What did Abram’s vision involve? ‘The Lord said to Abram: Leave your country, your family, and your relatives and go to the land that I will show you. I will bless you and make your descendants into a great nation’ (Genesis 12:1-2 CEV). How old was Abram? ‘Abram was seventy-five…when the Lord told him to leave the city of Haran’ (Genesis 12:4 CEV). What was Abram leaving? ‘Abram was very rich…and had a lot of silver and gold’ (Genesis 13:2 CEV). How did Abram respond? ‘By faith Abraham obeyed when he was called to go out to the place which he would receive as an inheritance. And he went out, not knowing where he was going’ (Hebrews 11:8 NKJV). Abraham couldn’t have told you where his final destiny was or how he would get there. He just knew God had told him to leave the safe harbour of where he was. Understand this: what you’re willing to walk away from often determines what God can entrust to you. You say, ‘But I need to have more information.’ You will know as you go! With each step of faith you take, God will reveal another detail. He will inform you on a ‘need-to-know’ basis. So, is the God who said to Abram, ‘Go to the land that I will show you’ saying something similar to you today? Don’t be afraid; just step out in faith and obey Him.
