GOD OF ABRAHAM,
ISAAC, AND JACOB
"I am the God of your father, the God of Abraham,
the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob."
FROM THE FATHER'S HEART
My child, I have called out great leaders in the past—gifted men and women—who followed Me in faith throughout their lives. But I delight in using all My children. Yes, I am the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. But flaws dotted their characters, too. Still, I blessed them and used them. It's not how great your gifts are that determines how I use you, but how big your faith can climb and how available you are to Me. Remember, I'm a big God.
A GRATEFUL RESPONSE
Lord, I cannot stand in Your presence without shoes removed and heart bared. Wherever You are is holy ground. You are the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. How is it that a God this big, the God of these giants, could be my personal God, too?
When we look at ourselves, we see flaws. When God looks at us, He sees Jesus.
