Genesis 11:31-32, "And Terah took Abram his son, and Lot the son of Haran his son's son, and Sarai his daughter in law, his son Abram's wife; and they went forth with them from Ur of the Chaldees, to go into the land of Canaan; and they came unto Haran, and dwelt there. And the days of Terah were two hundred and five years: and Terah died in Haran."
Everyone has seasons where they have entertained thoughts of giving up and walking away. It is part of the human experience to feel overwhelmed sometimes the remedy that seems to offer relief from the pressures of life is to just drop it altogether. The issue with that is that when we are responsible for others, making a decision to stop, drop, and roll away may not be in everyone else's best interest as much as it seems to be ours. For the sake of who is attached to you, making a poor decision can be expensive. And sometimes, the consequences of those poor decisions can derail our destiny.
This message looks at the life of Terah, Abraham's father, who fell short of his destiny. He died in Haran which is translated, a dry place. God doesn't want you to dwell in Haran; He has promises He wants to fulfill for you but they are contingent upon you enduring the race that is set before you. Let this message bless you.
