A Daily Devotion for Monday, September 28


Genesis 12:1-3


verse 1: The Lord had said to Abram, “Leave your country, your people and your father’s household and go to the land I will show you.”


Reading on in verse 4: So Abram left, as the Lord had told him...


This is so hard for me to fathom, let alone consider such an event in my own life. How did Abram know he was really answering God’s call? How was he so sure- sure enough to bring his wife and leave behind essentially everything else? (Can only guess how Sarai took the news of this plan.)


Yesterday in the church service when Pastor Gil talked about standing ready before God, to receive His wisdom, I had this image of my heart being an old window (like in our house) and the window was only partly open. When the wind is fresh and clean, I will get some of that, and have a tantalizing sniff of the outdoors. Mostly, though, my partially opened window keeps things out. Is this how I am living my life in relationship with God? Are my attempts to grow closer to Him symbolized by that window which is open, but only a safe, easy few inches?

Abram had his window thrown wide open to God. God spoke to Abram, and Abram heard.

Holy Father, I want to be able to hear what you are saying to me. Draw me closer, Lord. Help me to open my heart to you, to hear and experience you fully. Amen

More importantly God knows me And what I am capable of. . As I continue to spiritually grow,  I have learned that God would not ask me to do his commands unless he knew my faith was strong enough an…

Genesis 12:1-3


Some form of the word “bless” appears five times in these three verses. From entomology.com, “used in Scripture to translate Hebrew brk “to bend (the knee), worship, praise." It seems the author was really stressing the sure result of obedience to God, even when the voice of God gives us a challenging assignment. Leaving a well-paying Job to pursue a ministry call does not make worldly sense, but God has provided for our needs and we have been blessed. Becky”s practice is busy and I have been given opportunities to contribute A bit with consulting work. It is now up to us to be a blessing to others.


Prayer - God of blessing, thank You for Your generous…
