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
Today, God takes the initiative to call us to Himself. We may come and experience His appearing, His call, His promise, His power, and His unchanging nature. Through all our circumstances, we gain Him and reign through Him. In this way, God is fulfilling His eternal purpose.
