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:
This is our introduction to Abram, it is the same invitation we received to know the Lord.
- The Lord had said;
- How many times has the Lord called out to us before we finally get our act together?
- Get out of there:
- We must repent, turn away from our old ways and embrace the Way of the Lord.
- To a land I will show you;
- The Lord has made a plan and place just for us, if we will allow Him to bring us there.
I believe that the Lord introduced us to Enoch, Noah and Abram so we could see the potential for our own lives. These men were incredibly special, distinct from the rest of the world in their life times. Not because the Lord called out to them.
They were special and different and distinct from the rest of the world because they were obedient to what the Lord was speaking to them.
They were not any different then we are. They just purposed in their hearts to seek the Lord, to walk in His ways. To live their lives to honor and obey the Lord. Abram believed in the Lord and the Lord counted it for righteousness.
Enoch, Noah and Abram all believed and acted on their beliefs, that is why the Lord used them. The Lord will also use us as we accept the measure of faith available to us.
