It’s hard to leave home, because we leave security to face uncertainty. Still, many times God can’t change you unless he changes your atmosphere. Most of us are drawn towards atmospheres where we are recognized – I know that I am. In fact, one of the loneliest place in the world is when we are unrecognized. Could you imagine how unrecognized Abram must have felt when he left his home for an unfamiliar land?
Yet, this time when we are not recognized can be a sweet time of communion with God. If you are scared to leave when God calls you to, don’t be scared of loneliness. When you are unnoticed by the world, then you are free to live for the approval of God.
