No distrust made him waver concerning the promise of God, but he grew strong in his faith as he gave glory to God, fully convinced that God was able to do what He had promised.
We learn in today’s passage from Romans that Abraham lived a life of unwavering faith. He followed God before he knew where God wanted him to go or why. He obeyed even when he didn’t understand. It wasn’t easy for him to do… and it’s not easy for us!
Abraham refused to allow distrust against God to lodge in his heart. He made a conscious decision to believe God, to trust Him and to obey Him… no matter what.
This can be a challenge when you are facing a seemingly impossible situation. But if you will trust Him, God will be faithful to you… just as He was to Abraham.
Don’t allow doubts, fears, or the negative influence of others to cause you to distrust the promises of God. Like Abraham, make a choice to believe your heavenly Father, and you will see Him work on your behalf.
MAKE A DECISION TO TRUST THE PROMISES OF GOD IN EVERY SITUATION.
OUR THANKS TO YOU!
Do the words rested... peaceful... and refreshed describe you today? Or do the words stressed... rushed... and pressured better describe your way of life?
If you're like most Christians, you'd probably have to admit those last three words more accurately describe your life most of the time!
The good news is that it doesn't have to be this way... even when your life is one big pressure-cooker. And in my new book, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out, I'll show you why.
Based on the principles from Paul's letter to the Philippians and Psalm 23, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out will help you find true peace and rest in a world that is anything but peaceful and restful. It's the perfect "pause" button you need!
So please request your copy of Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out when you give online today! --Jack Graham
