Genesis 12:1 King James Version (KJV)
12 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 shew thee:
I can only imagine how Abraham must’ve felt, being asked to leave all that’s familiar (and comfortable) to the unfamiliar and unknown back then. My own experience was more than 10 years ago. My working life was getting too stressful and I desperately needed another job because I had to pay the car instalments. But I wasn’t sure if I could leave without having a job offer elsewhere. I went for many interviews but did not get the offer. Then one day, I don’t know how, but I knew in my heart that God would provide for me but I had to be brave enough to leave. So, I left the company; without a job offer, although I did go for that one last interview before I left that company. A week after I left the company, I was offered the new job. However, I’m not saying that everyone should quit their jobs without having done a lot of soul searching and time communing with God to discern what His will is. From my experience, the right decisions have always been accompanied by a sense of peace. Yes, you can rest – knowing that everything is in control. God is in control.
A few nights ago, I had a strange dream which I will share when I’m ready to share. But I have a feeling that there are changes happening.
