Can you see how God keeps His promises? Let’s dare to believe in God, knowing he is , even when we are not! Picture Abraham with Sara, his wife, his nephew, his servants, and his herd of livestock travelling with a tent to pitch anywhere they needed to. 

Abraham believed in God with childlike faith. At seventy-five, Abraham would have loved to enjoy the wealth and lifestyle he was accustomed to in Haran. Yet, he left and went where God led him. As a foreigner in a country, Abraham had to develop his faith to cope with new situations. 

Scripture says Abraham moved to Egypt because of famine. Pharaoh, the King took his very beautiful wife to his palace. Abraham didn’t reveal that Sara was his wife. Then, a plague was sent to Pharaoh’s house causing him to release Sarah and send Abraham out of the country. While for God to give them a family, he and Sarah tried to accomplish the promise themselves and a child was born, not of Sarah, but their Egyptian servant. Sarah, his wife, became angry at that servant’s scoffing and asked Abraham to act. So, God asked Abraham to listen to his wife. Abraham asked the servant and of the child to move out with her . They did. 

Today like Abraham you may have failed at times, but God hasn’t failed you. Abraham received everything that was promised, Canaan the his descendants would one day possess, and Sara had the child Isaac, although they were both the age of childbearing. Let’s dare to believe in God, knowing he is faithful, even when we are not! Thank God that nothing is impossible to him. 

“The Lord had said to Abram, “Leave your native country, your relatives, and your father’s family, and go to the land that I show you. I will make you a great nation. I will you and make you famous, and you will be a blessing to others. I will bless those who bless you and curse those who treat you with contempt. All the on earth will be blessed by you.” Genesis 12:1 NLT 

Let’s Pray 

Yahweh, thank you for showing how mighty and faithful you are through Abraham’s and Sara’s life. God, please help me to keep my eyes on you with eternity in my heart so I can finish strong. I hold on to Your promises knowing they are sure in Christ’s name. Amen
