Bible Challenge – Genesis 12

“The Lord had said to Abram, ‘Leave your native country, your relatives, and your father’s family, and go to the land that I will show you. 2 I will make you into a great nation. I will bless you and make you famous, and you will be a blessing to others. 3 I will bless those who bless you and curse those who treat you with contempt. All the families on earth will be blessed through you.'” v.1-3 (NLT)

Has God ever called you to do something that seemed extreme?  Think about it for a minute.  Ok, maybe extreme was intense, but has God ever called you or lead you to do something whether big or small? Did you do it?

Could you imagine what would have happened if Abram backed out on Gods calling?  Where would we be today? That’s probably another blog post. But the reality is that Abram responded to Gods call with obedience.  Let me say that word again, Obedience.  It’s a word that many of us struggle with because Obedience to God requires Faith.  God promised to bless Abram and make him famous, but God had one condition: Abram had to do what God wanted him to do.  This meant leaving his home and friends and traveling to a new land where God promised to build a great nation from Abram’s family.  Abram obeyed, walking away from his home for God’s promise of even greater blessings in the future.  This was a step of faith that required obedience.

So lets go back to the question, has God ever asked you to do something? Have you done it?  God may be trying to lead you to a place or greater service and usefulness to Him. Don’t let the comfort and security of your present situation make you miss God’s plan for you!

Today, will you take a leap of Faith and obey the Lords calling and leading?
