God’s plan might be different from your father’s plans for you.
Do you know that Abraham’s father had intended to live in Canaan? (Genesis 11:27-32). But instead of getting to his destination, Terah settled in Haran and died there, leaving behind his family.
Interestingly, Abraham didn’t try to live Haran until God called him. Possibly, after his father’s death, Abraham had decided to remain in Haran. Abraham might have decided to sustain his father’s legacy. Initially, Abraham didn’t try to go beyond his father’s limits. But when God met him, everything changed.
I don’t know what you are going through at the moment. Perhaps, like Abraham, you are trying to be like your father. I want you to know that God’s plan might be different from your father’s plans for you.
