Faith First
by Berni Dymet

Acts 7:5 He did not give him any of it as a heritage, not even a foot's length, but promised to give it to him as his possession and to his descendants after him, even though he had no child.

Have you ever struggled - struggled to believe in the promises that people make?  Even the promises that God makes.

In fact - in particular - the promises that God makes. 

God once promised an old man who had no children - that he would have his own land and more descendants than He could imagined.  His name was Abraham.

Not surprisingly, it was a bit of struggle for old Abe to believe this stuff.

But you know something - God has this amazing way of leading people like Abraham….and you and me on a journey.  A journey that we struggle on sometimes…but a journey where ultimately God writes His promises on our hearts.  He does that.

Because if we can't believe His promises - we can never take a hold of them.  It's a God thing - it's what faith is all about.

First He calls us to believe - and then, He takes us on a journey through His promises….the Promised Land.
