Abram passed through the land to the place of Shechem, as far as the terebinth tree of Moreh. And the Canaanites were then in the land. Genesis 12.6

When God called Abraham to leave his land and his father’s house, he asked nothing in return, but obeyed. Whoever feels touched by the Lord to do His work or accept the salvation of their soul must do the same. Now, the Father will never ask you for something you cannot give. He wants your obedience, and by it, you prove that you love Him. The reward we will receive will be of the highest value.

The patriarch’s call had three decisive moves so that he could do what he was told. The first was the call itself when he heard: [...] Get out of your country, from your Family and from your father’s house, to a land that I will show you (Genesis 12.1). The invitation to be saved also means breaking with the religious ties that bind us and all our families. Whoever is wise takes the right attitude.

In the second, Abraham heard promises that he could not reject at all, such as those made to those faithful to Jesus, who will reign for eternity. Thus the patriarch was told: I will make you a great nation; I will bless you and make your name great; And you shall be a blessing (Genesis 12.2). Through you, many will be led to salvation. Thus, your reward will be eternal, your name will be magnified, and you will become a true blessing.

In the third, the Almighty committed himself to make Abraham respected by those who knew about him, for they would also be blessed: I will bless those who bless you, and I will curse him who curses you; And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed (Genesis 12.3). Whoever heard about him would have only one option: bless him to be blessed, for if he cursed him, he would be cursed. Amen!

As soon as he heard the Lord, he decided to leave his land and kindred, and go to the place that would yet be shown to him. During his journey, he did not let himself be threatened by the dangers he would face: So Abram departed as the Lord had spoken to him, and Lot went with him. And Abram was seventy-five years old when he departed from Haran (Genesis 12.4). In Haran, his father died, but he continued to obey God’s command to go.

After his father´s death, he didn’t lose faith, but gathered everything he had and went to Canaan: Then Abram took Sarai his wife and Lot his brother’s son, and all their possessions that they had gathered, and the people whom they had acquired in Haran, and they departed to go to the land of Canaan. So they came to the land of Canaan (Genesis 12.5). Abraham was obedient to God, and from the very first moment he began to follow God’s orders, he prospered.

When he reached the land of the Canaanites, God made him a promise, saying: [...] To your descendants I will give this land. And there he built an altar to the Lord, who had appeared to him (Genesis 12.7). With the altar, he accepted that promise. It is worth believing in the Lord who loves us!

In Christ, with love,

God of our call and promise! When You commanded us to do Your will, we became owners of all the promises recorded in Your Holy Book, so we beg for help. Thus, we will act according to Your plans!

Those who bless us will automatically be blessed, but those who are stumbling blocks to us in Your work will taste the power of Your hand. We cannot let the devil use people to stop us from obeying You, for we know our mission.

In Haran, Abraham's umbilical cord was cut, for he no longer had his father to help him. He gathered his belongings and proceeded where You had pointed him. Then he reached the territory that You would give to his descendants four centuries later. Thank You, Lord!
