Genesis 12:1-2

The Lord had said to Abram, “Leave your country, your people and your Father’s household and go to the land I will show you.  I will make you into a great nation and I will bless you; I will make your name great and you will be a blessing.”

What’s holding you back?  What about being a fulltime Mom or maybe there is a job or schooling you are suppose to pursue, are you suppose to start your own business? What is it that you are supposed to be doing that you are putting off?  Don’t miss out on what God has in store for your life by hanging on to what is comfortable or familiar. 

God told Abram to go. He obeyed and God blessed him greatly!  There is blessing in obedience.  Are you listening to what God has been trying to tell you or are you so set on doing what you want that you are missing what He is saying?  I keep getting spam in my email and I laugh every time I get the one for hearing aids and the name of the company is Select Hearing. I think too many of us already suffer from having selective hearing.  We only hear what we want to hear and choose those things that won’t make our lives uncomfortable. 

I would challenge you today to figure out what it is that you are suppose to be doing and get moving!  Is it easy?  Not always.  BUT if you obey and trust God knowing that He is doing what is best for your life, you have nothing to lose!  If you are doing what you are suppose to do and you are where you are suppose to be then hang on to this verse as encouragement that God has blessings in store for you if you just keep pressing forward.  If God is calling for a new season or change in your life then allow him to put you where He has great opportunities for you to do great things!
