Genesis 22:3 “And Abraham rose up early in the morning, and saddled his ass, and took two of his young men with him, and Isaac his son, and clave the wood for the burnt offering, and rose up and WENT unto the place of which God had told him. (Emphasis mine)”
The bible says, “Abraham rose up and WENT…” In this particular piece, I want us to take a critical look at the word “went” as used here. This word in the Hebrew is translated ‘pursue’ or ’cause to run’, amongst other things.
Abraham had a task to accomplish and he pursued or ran after it. Abraham followed purpose with the urgency it required. This old man didn’t handle his assignment with laxity or lighty. He gave it his best shot.
I have heard many people tell me about their visions, but, unfortunately several months or years later they are still having the same dreams, staying in the same place and trying to gather momentum to start.
Abraham knew that following the instructions of God is not meant to be a walk but a pursuit. To pursue is to chase after something with intent, and that was what he did.
Mike Murdock said, “Pursuit is the proof of desire”. If you want something with a burning desire, you will definitely go after it with all you’ve got.
Beloved, what are your targets for the year 2017? What do you intend to achieve? You’ve talked about it long enough, it’s time to pursue.
The truth is that you don’t have all the time in the world, so you must run after your goals with intent and speed.
Where are you supposed to be? What businesses are you supposed to have started? Don’t be slack about them, make them a pursuit.
Run after your desires. I am sure you are not as old as Abraham, (we don’t know his real age here, but he was more than hundred), so rise up and run.
Pursuit shows your intention to meet your desires, therefore get up and RUN!
To be continued…
