Genesis 12: 1-9
God said to Abram, “Go to this land.”
He didn’t argue. He just went
And stopped at a tree where the Canaanites lived
He didn’t think twice. He pitched his tent.
God said the land would go to his children
Abram didn’t ask God what that meant
He didn’t argue, but built an altar
And never questioned the Father’s intent.
God called an old man, childless, with a past
God spoke, and Abram did as He said
Open to change, rather than scheming
Or making some other plans, instead.
A momentous risk, but this was the LORD
Jehovah, Great, Magnificent One
The highest name, Creator adored
Who, too, was willing to give up His Son.
Afraid? Yes, Abram was
But he believed the LORD would show him the way.
He didn’t argue, but rather trusted
His family would find a home to stay.
Will you listen, set aside
Everyone, everything, arguments forsaking
Your wants, your “must haves,” and your pride
God simply at His Word taking?
