The Call of Abram


1 The Lord had said to Abram, “Go from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you. 2 “I will make you into a great nation, and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing. 3 I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.” Genesis 12:1-3 NIV


How many Avraham’s (including my father) left their familiar world and went to new lands... Countless amounts! Too many to name!

They were tired of what was around them - the political situation was changing, or financial need was driving them. But you and I know - GOD STANDS behind it all! Ultimately, only He is the Lord and Leader of everything. That is, those who trusted this calling, it does not mean that they always did everything accordingly, but, nevertheless, they WENT, went where they did not quite imagine - they won the VICTORY and received their reward!

I suspect that most of us are presented with opportunities and challenges that are sure to be met with blessings. Well, at least part of it. After all, our forefather Abraham, having received all the theoretical promises during that earthly life, did not always fully acquire and experience them. But the letter to the Hebrews teaches us that Abraham looked forward to the descent of the Heavenly City. 10 “For he was looking forward to the city with foundations, whose architect and builder is God.” Hebrews 11:10 NIV

 Don't be scared! Don't be afraid to leave the old and move on to the new! Trust the call of the Lord and trust Him to win, being content with the humble, as Paul teaches, “I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty.” Philippians 4:12 NIV

 As human beings, we may be looking at other heroes who, according to Scripture, are more anti-heroes. Advertising about their life is extensive and they are always in sight, they are known, and they are envied ... King David once said: "For I envied the arrogant when I saw the prosperity of the wicked." Psalms 73:3 NIV But, after, the same David said: "till I entered the sanctuary of God; then I understood their final destiny. Psalms 73:17 NIV and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever. Psalms 23:6 NIV Walking the new path, trusting the call of God, and no matter in what area - the main thing is that the Authority and Guidance of the Word of God protect our decisions, actions, and that irritated by the people around you, rather, that you can live peacefully with them so that you can share the light within you!

In this, we can be heirs of our father Abraham! One of his descendants, Yeshua, having redeemed us from sinful passions and ambitions, is ready to help us at any time. He is ready in spirit to strengthen you and me from within. The main thing is to understand where you are, to hear the Voice of God and get out of what is not pleasing to Him, to enter God's Peace, even when this Peace is like an everyday battle.

Sincerely, Leon Mazin
