Now the Lord said to Abram, “Go from your country and your kindred and your father’s house to the land that I will show you. And I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you and make your name great, so that you will be a blessing. (Genesis 12:1-2)
The Lord often takes us from the known and comfortable, sending us out into the unknown where we’re uncomfortable. However, it’s only in the unknown, where we’re completely reliant on God, that all distraction fades and we begin to see clearly enough to find the promises He has for us.
