In Genesis 12 we read the origins of the nation of Israel. God’s chosen people began when God called Abram out of his homeland to go to an unknown land. God promised Abram a 7-fold blessing. Remarkably, boldly, Abram believed and obeyed God. God led Abram to the land of the Canaanites and promised to give him their land. Abram responded in claiming the land for God and worshipped Him there.
