April 25 Sermon: How to Walk Away

Scripture: Genesis 12: 1-5

Sermon delivered by Pastor Williams


            Whether we want to admit it or not, God has already made it manifest to us to just walk away.  God wants to pour us out blessings that we won’t have room enough to receive.  Walk away from hatred, malice in your hearts and sins that you know are wrong.  God cannot bless you in mess.

Learn to leave certain things behind and don’t turn around.  You are probably saying “how do I do that?  It’s easy to tell me, but somebody has to show me how to walk away”.  Some of us are still in Haran when God wants us in Canaan.  Abram was given the same challenge – leave family and loved ones - just pack his bags and go.  In Haran they worshipped idol gods and God wanted Abram away from all of that so he could become the father of many nations. 

God’s word is not complicated, we just make it hard.  All we need to do is just listen to God’s word.  He will tell you how to put one foot in front of the other.  Many of us are struggling in our lives because we do not hear the preached word.  Stop listening to those “wannabes”.  Learn to obey and trust God’s word If you really want to walk away.

            Many of us hear God’s word and do not want to trust Him.  You have to trust and obey Him and He will bring you out.  The scripture says “we walk by faith and not by sight”.  Abram trusted God in spite of his 75 years of age.  Many of us say in our old age “I’m set in my ways” or “that preacher can say what he wants, I’m old enough to be his mama”.  But let me tell you, God has a new thing for your life – no matter what age.

Abram walked away in the midst of uncertainty.  Many of us won’t trust God until He lays it out in front of us to see.  Every once in a while we need to step out on faith.  If God says He will make a way, it’s already done.  Walk away, trust Him, believe in Him, lean on Him.  Don’t look back.  Walk away from that sin and watch God lift you up, turn your around and make a way out of no way.  Ain’t God alright!

Just walk away from that sin in your life.  You can’t hang out on the corner, walk away.  They are going to talk about you but walk away.  When you walk away, you will make it to Canaan.  Walk away.  Satan, Saints and sinners cannot live in the same house together.  Stop asking others what to do or sitting there wrestling with it or just praying about it when God has already told you what to do.  Walk away and trust God.

If you want God’s blessings for your life, you have to get up from where you are, walk away and come get your blessings.
