DAY 5 Moving out from usual environment.

Then the LORD said to Abram, “Leave your country, your kindred, and your father’s household, and go to the land I will show you. Genesis 12:1

The environment in which we live can make it difficult for us to transition into a new dimension. For this reason, when God calls someone for an unusual purpose, He often removes them from their familiar environment. This happened to Moses. The Lord needed him so He had to take Moses out of the comfort of Pharaoh’s palace, lead him to the desert, and then have him return to deliver the people of Israel from Egypt’s yoke. The supernatural power of God helps to do what Jesus did: teaching, preaching, healing the sick and casting out demons. He removes us from our usual environment so that we may be transformed. Today, God is also calling you, so that you can be a blessing to your people.

Perhaps God is calling you for an unusual purpose, and you have refused. Now is the time to leave your comfort. Age is not a limit. Abram was seventy-five years old when God called him to leave his home and his people.

Let us pray together
Lord Jesus, today I acknowledge that I have been fleeing the great commission that you gave us. I regret not having attended your call, and starting today, I make the commitment to faithfully serve you the rest of my life. I don’t have to necessarily be a preacher, but wherever I go I will preach the gospel of the Kingdom and become a winner of souls for Christ. Lord, accept my commitment today. Amen.
