Thoughts: Abram lived very comfortably in Haran. But God had other plans for him. “Go to a land that I will show you,” he told Abram.
Where? What land? How far away is it? Who lives there? Surely these are questions Abram wanted to ask. But he didn’t. He departed. After all, he was young – only 75 years old.
When Abram arrived in the plain of March, God said, “I’ll give this land to your descendants.” Again, Abram wanted to say, “But God, I have no descendants.” But he didn’t. He built an altar and prayed to the Lord. What unquestioning faith!
Discussion: Would we go to an unknown land if God directed us there? Sharper question – would we hear the direction?
Activity: God promised Abram he would be a blessing in this new land. Be a blessing today to someone in your own land.
