Now the Lord had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will shew thee.
(Gen. 12:1 KJV)
When you are settled in and comfortable with where you are, the last thing you want to hear is, "Its time to leave. Pack up what you have, leave everything and everyone you are used to."

If you are like me, you will ask, "Where are we going and why?" Even if we were to get a clear, reasonable answer, we would most likely still feel a bit undone about the prospect. Imagine what it must have been like for Abram when he was asked to leave all and go to "who knows where?". Imagine being his wife Sarai when he told here, "God spoke to me and told me to get out of here." "Where are we going?," she would ask. His answer to here was so reassuring, "I don't know, the Lord said He would show it to me."

This is a challenge that many Christians face; but face it they must. Without faith that comes from the Word of God there is no way to yield to the call of God to, "Get out of where you are!" But, Beloved, in faith all things are possible; even following the Holy Spirit to places that you have never seen and never heard of.
So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
(Rom. 10:17 KJV)
In the Word we come to realize that God is always good, always working out His plan and purpose for our lives, always drawing us toward "a land that" He will show us, a land flowing with milk and honey, a land where He can bless us abundantly.

Certain relationships will have to be forsaken and there will be places that we must never return to. We are new creatures in Christ with a new direction for our lives. We are in covenant with the Creator of heaven and earth and no longer our own. We were bought with a price and that price was the Lamb of God, slain from the foundation of the earth.

We are going with Him.
