What is in the way of you following the Lord? When God called Abraham to leave his old life and follow Him to the Promised Land (Genesis 12), there were multiple obstacles in the way. First, Abraham was 75 years old. I’m not saying that’s ancient, but not many 75-year-olds would relish a 1,000 mile journey on foot.
He also was leaving his country, his kindred, and his father’s house—breaking lifelong ties. It seems that Abraham was well-off, and this move God called him to included his possessions (livestock?) and servants, and would have taken even more time to accomplish.
Also, there was the issue of the Canaanites in the land—wild and dangerous people who worshiped pagan gods. To top it off, God did not reveal to Abraham the exact details of where he was going.
But Abraham trusted God, and he would not let his age or any obstacle keep him from following the Lord. We read in Hebrews 11:8—”By faith Abraham obeyed when he was called to go out to a place that he was to receive as an inheritance. And he went out, not knowing where he was going.”
So, I ask, to what is God calling you? He may be calling you first to salvation: to turn away from anything that is keeping you away from God and trust only in Jesus to forgive your sins.
Or, God might be calling you as a Christian to make a change in your life that will help you follow Him better.
Only you and God know what that change may be. He might be calling you to actually move somewhere else where you have a desire to serve Him and help others. Whatever or wherever, let nothing stand in your way of following the Lord.
