Scripture: Genesis 12:1
The Lord had said to Abram, “Go from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you.
Has God ever asked you to do something, and then when you didn't do it, gave you a second chance a little while later? He does that for Abram here. In Genesis 11:31, it says that Abram's father was taking him to Canaan, but they stopped short. Now, God is calling Abram to continue the journey.
Sometimes, our life is like that. God calls us to do something and we get started, but don't quite go all the way. We stop to rest, get distracted, or get frustrated and quit. Thank God that He continues to call us onward and that sometimes, a call is simply a renewal to the call.
What has God called you to in the past? Is He still calling you to it? If you're not sure, ask Him. He will answer.
