Now the Lord said to Abram, “Go from your country and your kindred and your father’s house to the land that I will show you. And I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you and make your name great, so that you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and him who dishonors you I will curse, and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.” So Abram went, as the Lord had told him
Some might think 75 years old is well past time to leave your father’s house, but this was the time God told Abraham to leave. He didn’t know where God was sending him, but he went. That’s what faith is, not knowing exactly, but still acting. Faith isn’t just something in our heads, it’s what we do. God’s promise to Abraham is still part of God’s gathering for himself a people. Through Abraham all the world was blessed. All those who follow Jesus, are children of Abraham. You are blessed, if you know Jesus. Choose to be blessed today.
