So Abram left, as the LORD had told him; and Lot went with him. Abram was seventy-five years old when he set out from Haran. Genesis 12:4 (NIV)

Have you ever felt prompted by the Lord to make a difficult transition with the promise of great blessing? What did you finally decide?

God gave Abram a command and a promise. The command: Go to a land I will show you. The promise: Through Abram, God will make a great nation, Abram’s name will become great, and all people on earth will be blessed through Abram.

To this point in history, God has delivered just as He promised. Through Abram (now Abraham), God established the nation of Israel and Abraham is revered as a great man of faith.

Why did God choose Abram? We may not know all the reasons, but we do know that the Lord honored him for his faith which was demonstrated by obedience to God’s commands.

God has incredible blessings in store for those who will trust and obey. Perhaps God has spoken to your heart with a command and a promise.

Decide to trust God and obey. You’ll never realize your full potential in serving God until you say “yes.”
