NOW [in Haran] the Lord said to Abram, Go for yourself [for your own advantage] away from your country, from your relatives and your father’s house, to the land that I will show you. (Genesis 12:1 AMP)

Change is Evident. Over the past 9 months things have been rapidly changing in my life. God strategically uprooted me and my family from Louisiana and placed us around new opportunities for growth and development in Texas. During my quiet time a couple of years ago, He shared that we would be moving to Texas. Of course, I could not figure out how, when, or even why. But, I must say, God did the impossible and exceeded our wildest dreams.
Change is evident. It is up to you to either receive or resist it. Do you know that sometimes He has to move you from where you are to another place so He can stretch your dreams and reveal more of His vision? Do you realize that there are dreams that God do not give you and relationships He did not ordain for you that He must now severe because they are not productive? Daily, I’m learning not to under-estimate the power and wisdom of God. He is moving in ways that I’ve never seen before and doing things that I know no man can do.
If you are one of His, be open to change. Yes, it will require blind faith to make the transition. But, there will be such fruitfulness and abundance once you reach the destination He alone orchestrated for you. My family is a witness.
