“But in faith Abraham left everything – his home and family – and went to the land the Lord would slowly grant him.”
Abram [Abraham] who did not always wait, obey, or trust – is chosen to have more descendants than the sands in the sea. This man from Ur was selected out of everyone on the planet of that time to receive THE PROMISE. So why Abram?
Genesis 12:4 suggests an initial answer: “So Abram left.” Perhaps one answer is simply, “Because he’d go.”
All God told Abram about his ultimate destination was that He would show it to Him. In other words, “The only way you’re going to find it is to walk with Me. When we get close, I’ll show it to you.”
And He did.
“So Abram built an altar to the Lord.” [Genesis 12:7]

Why use this girl?
“Because she’d go.”
