We read in Genesis 12:1-5 the following:
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. 2 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. 3 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.”
4 So Abram went, as the Lord had told him, and Lot went with him. Abram was seventy-five years old when he departed from Haran. 5 And Abram took Sarai his wife, and Lot his brother's son, and all their possessions that they had gathered, and the people that they had acquired in Haran, and they set out to go to the land of Canaan…
Here we find our first challenge: to live lives of obedience. God’s blessings to Abram came on the condition of His obedience. God was calling him to something great…much more than Abram could have imagined at this point, but in order for those plans to come to fruition, Abram had to first step out in obedience. God said “Go” and Abram and Sarai went.
What is God calling you to? Do you believe that he is calling you to something great? Greater than you can even imagine at this point? In Jeremiah God says through the prophet, "I know the plans I have for you..." He does not say "I don't know what I am going to do with you." He has a plan, and he is calling us to action. When God calls, will you hear? When God says go, will you go?
