Go Where I Send You

Go Where I Send You

Abram must have been adventurous. Yeah. No fear. God says”Go,” and he drops everything and just goes. No moving truck, no forward of address card, not a clue where God would lead him. I admire his Pioneer Spirit of Adventure. Abram was 75 years old at the time! Can you imagine us trying to move at 75? I think we have a few more things to carry. I for one have a bit more luggage.

Promises to Abram

Now the Lord had said to Abram:

“Get out of your country,
From your family
And from your father’s house,
To a land that I will show you.

 I will make you a great nation;
I will bless you
And make your name great;
And you shall be a blessing.

 I will bless those who bless you,
And I will curse him who curses you;
And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”

So Abram departed as the Lord had spoken to him, and Lot went with him. And Abram was seventy-five years old when he departed from Haran. –Genesis 12: 1-4 NKJV

And 5 chapters later,  Abram was gets a new name. He is still following the Lord, learning along the way.

The Sign of the Covenant

When Abram was ninety-nine years old, the Lord appeared to Abram and said to him, “I am Almighty God; walk before Me and be blameless. And I will make My covenant between Me and you, and will multiply you exceedingly.”  Then Abram fell on his face, and God talked with him, saying: “As for Me, behold, My covenant is with you, and you shall be a father of many nations. No longer shall your name be called Abram, but your name shall be Abraham; for I have made you a father of many nations.  I will make you exceedingly fruitful; and I will make nations of you, and kings shall come from you.  And I will establish My covenant between Me and you and your descendants after you in their generations, for an everlasting covenant, to be God to you and your descendants after you.  Also I give to you and your descendants after you the land in which you are a stranger, all the land of Canaan, as an everlasting possession; and I will be their God.” – Genesis 17:1-8 NKJV

trusting God

Can I say to those of us who are getting older – God is not finished yet.

Do not give up.

The Lord still has things for you to do.

Your trust in the Lord will lead many back to the Father.

Let us all –  Go where He sends us!
