Abraham believed God for everything that God told him for his life. There were some things God said to Abraham that seemed impossible at the time, but Abraham believed if God said it would happen. Abraham's faith and trust in God were unsurpassed, because He truly loved God and was obedient to what God had for his life, no matter how impossible it looked at the time. We need to be more like Abraham and have faith in God that nothing or no one will ever be able to shake. It does not make a difference how impossible it may look right now, but if God spoke it into our lives we should expectantly wait, and know it will happen.
The Scripture reminds us how strong Abraham's faith in God was, that He believed God no matter how it looked. I encourage you today to believe God no matter how it looks, or what people may say, God will do what He said He would do in your life. Trust God to bring you through trials and tribulations, and keep you in the midst of troubles that may arise in your life. When you trust God you can call those things which are not as if they already are, knowing since God is with you He will make a way for you. Trust God to open doors that were previously closed to you, trust God to make those things which seem impossible to come to fruition. Trust God in all you do and know if God could bless Abraham in his old age with a child there is nothing too hard for God to do in your life. Even when the odds look like they are against you, the odds are really in your favor because you have The Lord on your side.
I thank God I can call those things that are not yet, as if they already are because I trust God to bring me through, and to bring me out. This is why I know without doubt, "It's My Year To Get My Thing From My God!"
For every promise you have made for my life, I know that they will come to pass. Lord continue to guide my steps every day as I continue to get closer to you. In Jesus Name Amen.
