Now the Lord said to Abram,
“Go forth from your country,
And from your relatives
And from your father’s house,
To the land which I will show you;
And I will make you a great nation,
And I will bless you,
And make your name great;
And so you shall be a blessing;
And I will bless those who bless you,
And the one who curses you I will curse.
And in you all the families of the earth will be blessed.”
–  Genesis 12:1-3

God’s will is that He become our good land, the inheritance of the called ones (Col. 1:12). His will is that He reign over us, the fellow citizens of a holy nation (Eph. 2:19; 1 Pet. 2:9). And His will is that through us, His called ones, He would fulfill His purpose to bless all the families of the earth.
