Just today, I read this passage:
The LORD had said to Abram, “Leave your country, your people and your father’s household and go to the land I will show you.
“I will make you into a great nation
and I will bless you;
I will make your name great,
and you will be a blessing.
I will bless those who bless you,
and whoever curses you I will curse;
and all peoples on earth
will be blessed through you.”
Reading that passage was a great encouragement for me. I feel a little like Abram because I’ve clearly sensed God’s call on my life to “pick up and move on” but he hasn’t yet told me where I’m supposed to go. However, for Abram, the promise was “I will bless you, and other people will be blessed through you.” I’m claiming that promise for myself as a spiritual child of Abraham! (Romans 4)
Thank You, God!
