Abraham believed God’s promise (Gen. 15:6). Do I demonstrate the same level of trust?
Take finances, for instance. How often have I heard God’s promise to provide our needs according to His riches in Christ Jesus? And yet, how often have I felt afraid in money matters? The fear comes from my lack of understanding God’s ability to provide, not from His inability to do so. Heaven knows He’s more than able.
What about His ability to give me wisdom when I’m faced with decisions about the direction I’m to go? He’s promised to direct my steps if I trust in Him (Prov. 3:5,6).
For every issue I face, there’s a God-given promise. It’s up to me whether or not I choose to believe that promise is true.
Abraham chose to believe, and God was pleased. I want to follow his example. I know it’s not always easy, but it’s always the best thing to do because God cannot lie. He’s faithful. He will fulfill.
How about you? What God-given promise are you choosing to believe even though, humanly, the odds are stacked against you?
