Obedience and Vision by Laurie McTier
"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: And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:" Genesis 12:1, 2
As we read about Abraham and Sarah in the Old Testament, we are given a vivid picture of a man and woman of great faith. Abraham and Sarah walked with God, they yearned to please Him, and they wanted to follow His directive hand.
As I read the Abrahamic Covenant that God made with Abraham thousands of years ago, I am reminded of many key factors that are vital to our Christian walk.
1. Immediate Obedience. When God told Abraham to get out of the country, he immediately assembled his family and he obeyed God's voice. Abraham did not know which direction he was headed, he acted in obedience and faith that God would lead the way.
2. Vision. Abraham and Sarah were willing to take risks. They incorporated faith with vision. As they sought God, He directed and anointed their steps, He became their shield and defender. Through their needs, God revealed Himself and expanded their vision and relationship with Him.
3. Inheritance. As Abraham and Sarah served God, God began to give them the desires of their heart. God promised them that their seed would be equal to the number of the stars in the sky. God told Abraham to claim his territory. His riches and his inheritance were equal to all of the land that He saw in the horizon. Abraham had a God given vision and inheritance.
4. Blessing. God made them a promise that they would be blessed and that they would be a blessing. They touched many people in their lifetime and throughout history. Our life can do just the same. God wants us to serve Him and He wants to empower us so that our life can be a blessing to someone each and everyday.
Daily Prayer Focus: Lord, increase my faith today. I pray that I will be sensitive to your directive hand and constantly reminded of the blessings you have given to me.
