The Call of Abraham

wanderer-455338_1280It was like yesterday that I remember when I got the call to ministry. Every minister as a story around their call which validates them as a minister. At the time I was studying computer science, and I just felt like I wanted to do something more. After I prayed and took counsel with friends and family, I knew what I had to do. I stepped out into unknown territory to go the the country where God called me.  Even though you may not be a minister, you too have a calling.

 Even though you may not be a minister, you too have a calling!

In Genesis 12:1-3 we see the call of Abraham. God Called Abraham  from the land of his Father to a foreign country. God gave Abraham a promise that he would make him great, and he stepped out on faith! Like Abraham we have all had these pivotal moments like Abraham. To move from where we are to where God

Through the call of Abraham we see elements of our own call, what is God calling you to today?

Prayer: Lord God almighty we thank you that you have a vision for our lives and call us by faith into the far country. Lord please grant us the courage to move forward by faith.
