· Abraham believed and God did what He said He would do
· Regardless of situation Abraham believed the word of God
· He did not waiver in his favor
· His faith was credited to him as righteousness
· God will credit righteousness to us for faith and belief
· Jesus was delivered to death for our sins, and was raised for our justification.
Abraham did not allow his circumstances to determine what he believed about God and what He would do. He looked away from the circumstances to the promise. Today this can be a very difficult thing to do, set aside our current situations and proclaim what we know to be true about God and from that truth set into full belief that God will do what He has said He is going to do.
It can be so easy for our faith to waiver in situations when we see no change or proof that God will do what He said. Yet we must determine within ourselves that God will do what He said he is going to do, because He is good and keeps his promises. That is when our faith goes from a truth that we have heard to a truth that we believe.
Ultimately we must have faith in God – who delivered Jesus over to death for our sins and raised him for our justification. We must have faith that God is who He says He is, and that He has done, and will do, what He claims.
Lord, you are so good. I ask that you would increase my measure of faith, and my capacity to recognize your voice and your leading in my life. Thank you for what Jesus did on the cross for me, and that you that it is a truth that I can cling onto, that you are faithful to do what you say you will do. I love you so much. Amen.
