“God said to Abraham, ‘Go for yourself, from your land, from your birthplace, and from your father’s house, to the land that I will show you.”
~ Genesis 12:1

When God sends Abraham off on his journey to Canaan, instead of simply giving the destination, He emphasizes the point of departure in a redundant order.

Surely having already left his land, Abraham would’ve also left his birthplace and home!

More than geography, God’s speaking about spheres of influence. The home affects the consciousness more than culture or country. However, the past is to your soul what clothing is to your body. To experience your essence, peel away the layers.
