“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 show thee” Genesis 12:1 KJV
Abraham would have died without being the father of faith if he had remained in Haran. The Scripture tells us that his wife was barren, he was already old and his father died there. He would have remained there, but thank God he did not. God called them out from the Ur of the Chaldees.
Abraham had to be separated from his family in order to be positioned for what God had planned to do in his life. You also may need to depart from certain things that hinder you. You may have to give up certain habits or cut off certain friends who are not enhancing your progress. You may even need to desist from going to places that you usually go to. There are some of you who have to depart from tradition. You are going to church, you are a Christian but you are still tied to family tradition. You are wrongly positioned! You need to reposition yourself.
Beloved, only God’s way is successful: “Except the Lord build the house they labour in vain that build it, except the Lord keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain” (Psalm 127:1 KJV). Whatever God is not building will not last. It is important, therefore, that you come out from the secret things you have involved yourself in. God wants to reposition you for your next level. Abraham departed and the rest is history. When he moved out in obedience to God’s Word, things began to happen in his life.
God is very specific. When He called Abraham, He gave Him direction. Now that He has called you, He also wants to give you direction. You have to reposition yourself to receive all that He has in store for you and when you do, you will see His blessings in a dimension you never imagined. I declare that the enemy will not shortchange you.
