Many pray for the blessings of God but sometimes fail to meet the requirements attached to the blessings. We pray for a blessed marriage, career, children, job, ministry and the list goes on.
God promised Abraham that he will make him the father of many nations and bless him. This was not going to come on a silver platter because there were certain requirements he had to meet.
“And he said unto him, I am the Lord that brought thee out of Ur of the Chaldees, to give thee this land to inherit it.” – Genesis 15:7
God had to “bring him out” before he could inherit his land or blessing. In other words, he had to lose in order to gain.
If you want God to bless you, you may have to come out of many things to embrace what God has for you. Sometimes, we have to come out of a bad relationship to gain a godly one, you may have to lose your job to be able to start your own business. You may have to leave your worldly thinking, principles, and values behind to be a spiritual person. You may even have to come out of your moods to have a happy home.
Abraham was excited about the land but he had to “come out” first. What do you have to leave behind to be able to be all that God made you to be?
I challenge you to “come out” in faith and step into your future.
