Believe and Trust - Thursday, August 21st 2014
"...who, contrary to hope, in hope believed, so that he became the father of many nations, according to what was spoken, "So shall your descendants be." And not being weak in faith, he did not consider his own body, already dead (since he was about a hundred years old), and the deadness of Sarah's womb."
Abraham was 100 years old and Sarah was 90 years old. Think about that. What God was promising was not possible, yet it was possible because God promised it. As you may be aware, God called me to spend many years on the road with my family in a national music ministry. Our life on the road was fraught with unknowns. Many times, I was faced with situations where I could not see how it could possibly work out. Time and again, I saw God come through and it built my faith. What has God brought you through? Think for a moment of all the situations that God has brought you through. Let your faith fight your fear. Do not be controlled by fear because when you fear, you are not controlled by faith. You have to make the choice. Will you choose faith or will you choose fear?
Life Lesson: We should believe and trust in God even when it doesn't make sense.
Thank You that You are a God who keeps His promises. You tell us in Your Bible that all things work together for good to those who love You. What an incredible promise! Lord, please help my faith and give me the occasion to help encourage another in their faith. I pray this in Jesus' name. Amen.
Living to tell what He died to say,
