Acts 7:3 ‘Leave your country and your people,’ God said, ‘and go to the land I will show you.’
Leave and Go THEN I will show seems contrary to my initial reaction to life. I would like for God to Show, then I will most willingly leave and go. Father Abraham got it right. He was willing to leave his land and the people he loved to obey the Word of the Lord.
How settled are we? How comfortable have we become? IF God said ‘leave and go’ would I be as willing and ready to leave as Abraham was? Abraham’s obedience lead to him becoming one of the greatest of Biblical Patriarchs. Moses stepped foot into the raging Red Sea before the waters were parted. For that act of obedience the water gave way for the people of Israel.
The Great Commission begins with the same word and it is given to all believers! GO!
Today, God wants me to leave my comfort, take some risks, have some spiritual conversations, THEN He will show his hand. But, He will not reveal His hand until we have first played ours! It’s your move!
