Events of the Bible: Call of Abram- Weekly Devotion

We survived Monday everyone! How many more weeks do y'all have until schools out?? I only have three weeks so I am in the home stretch to summer at the moment and couldn't be more ready. Sorry I didn't post the devotion last Monday. It was a crazy week last week but I am back on the schedule and I am bringing you another great devotion as we work through every event of the Bible together.
 
 
What we are Learning This Week:
In spite of the fact that Abram was childless and 75 years old, God told him to leave his home in Ur, Mesopotamia and that God would bless him and make him a great nation. Sarai, his wife, and Lot, his nephew, left with him, not knowing where they would end up or what would happen. They ended up in Canaan. God told him that He would give this land to Abram's descendants.
 
How This Relates to Your Life:
In next weeks devotion and the devotions to come we will learn a lot more about Abram and all he amounted to. He was a great man and the Lord blessed his devotion to him and his willingness to pack up leave. Abram could have easily said "Nah God I am pretty cushy and fine where I am at. I think I will stay right here," but he didn't. When God called him to do something crazy, he did it without hesitation, and we will soon discover that God blessed him for that. Do we often become to comfortable in our situation that when God calls us to do something crazy we say, "No thanks, I am doing pretty good where I am at. But I still love you,"?? I think we all say that pretty often.
Luke 11:28 says He replied, "Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and obey it."
When you hear God telling you to do something or go somewhere it is for the best, he knows what he is doing.
Romans 2:6-8 says God "will repay each person according to what they have done." To those who by persistence in doing good seek glory, honor, and immorality, he will give eternal life. But for those who are self-seeking and who reject the truth and follow evil, there will be wrath and anger.
One way that the devil will often times win us over is when he makes us comfortable. This week lets all try to do something uncomfortable and follow God regardless of how hard that might be.
