Big Idea: Active trust leads to significant blessing.
Main Scripture: Genesis 12:1-4 – “The LORD had said to Abram, “Leave your native country, your relatives, and your father’s family, and go to the land that I will show you. I will make you into a great nation. I will bless you and make you famous, and you will be a blessing to others. I will bless those who bless you and curse those who treat you with contempt. All the families on earth will be blessed through you.” So Abram departed as the LORD had instructed, and Lot went with him. Abram was seventy-five years old when he left Haran.” (NLT)
- Trust the right voice.
“At Babel, men said, “Let us!” but to Abram, God said, “I will.” At Babel, men wanted to make a name for themselves; but it was God who made Abram’s name great. At Babel, the workers tried to unite men, only to divide them; but through Abram, a whole world has been blessed, and all believers are united in Jesus Christ.” (Wiersbe)
- Read His written word, the Bible.
- Spend time listening.
- Seek out Godly counsel.
- Trust is tested by the fruit.
Will this decision build my kingdom, or will it build God’s kingdom?
Hebrews 11:1 – “Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.” (NIV)
Hebrews 11:8: – “By faith Abraham, when called to go to a place he would later receive as his inheritance, obeyed and went, even though he did not know where he was going.” (NIV)
Are you listening to God’s voice?
Whose kingdom are you building?
Are you dragging your feet?
