I like familiar. I travel the same way to work daily. I eat the same food. I buy the same ice cream. For me, familiar is good. I’m very uncomfortable with the unfamiliar. I’d much rather stick with what I know.

Try the road less traveled...you just might learn something new.

I’m quite sure Abram felt the same way. He was settled. His family was around. Everything was…well familiar.

Be careful though,

Familiarity could cause you to miss a move of God.

“Now the Lord saidt to Abram, ‘Go from your country and your kindred and your father’s house to the land that I will show you'” (Genesis 12:1)

Try something new this week. Take a different route to work. Invite a co-worker you don’t normally converse with out to lunch. Call someone with whom you normally have lengthy text conversations. You never know. In leaving the familiar there may be a blessing in store.

    Being able to discern God’s voice has taken me many places that are not familiar. I’m now more familiar with the un-familiar then the familiar. He knows I’m available so He uses me often in many ways. Years ago I prayed with a cell group leader for discernment of God’s voice, the next day I heard His voice from that time to now. I know His voice and He speaks to me whenever He wants to and I listen and obey. I never know what a day will bring but I trust Him with all my heart…
