Now the Lord said unto Abram, get thee out of thy country, away from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will show thee
Here we are at Day 3 to let you know that your "why" matters to God, and whether or not you find your "why" has an impact on what God wants to do in the earth.
God is not just calling anybody that answers.
He's calling you.
In Genesis 12 we see where God calls Abram.
"Now the Lord said unto Abram, get thee out of thy country, away from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will show thee."
God gave this assignment directly to Abram, and whether or not you accept the assignment or not will not change the call. However, it could have an impact on what God wants to do, because now God has to do it without you.
He was speaking directly to Abram, just like He will to you and to I.
"Get out of your comfort zone, away from those you know.
I've got something for you to do."
The beginning of verse 4 is powerful.
"So Abram departed."
He took the first step in accepting his "why."
Until he departs, it's nothing more than a God idea.
It doesn't matter if it's a word from God, a dream from God, a vision from God; if you don't act on the word, nothing will happen.
There are people that God has called you to reach and connect with that you'll never reach if you don't act on the word from God.
If you stay in the same place doing the same thing, your paths will never cross.
It can be the will of God and, therefore, we know the power of God would be present, but there's no power in staying where you are.
God is calling you to your Jerusalem, your Judea, but the places you can impact will be different from me.
Your "why" matters to God.
In Matthew 25:21 it said, "His Lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee a ruler over many things."
Jesus uses an example of three men that He gave assignments to.
Two men took the word and produced for God.
The third man allowed fear to stop him.
The men that moved forward on the word from God received one of the most powerful statements in the Bible: "Well done, thou good and faithful servant. I will make you a ruler."
If you're faithful to the purpose that God has placed in you, He said He would make you, and there's no makeover like a God makeover.
