Abraham Faith.

The tension in Genesis 22 (https://bit.ly/3CsifEn) is excruciating when Isaac realizes that something is wrong and asks his father: “the fire and wood are here, but where is the lamb for the burnt offering?”

Abraham, having nothing other than faith in the character and goodness of God, replied: “God himself will provide the lamb for the burnt offering, my son.”

Abraham lay’s Isaac upon the altar and soon thereafter God provides a ram for the sacrifice instead. The faith Abraham portrays is unimaginable

How are you putting your faith in God into action today?

Faith builders.

In Luke 1 (https://bit.ly/3ol5NRP) the angel Gabriel appears to a virgin named Mary and tells her: “You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you are to call him Jesus.”

Saying yes to this plan of God would result in a cloud of suspicion and shame hanging over her and her family for the rest of their lives.

Yet, in spite of these things, Mary said to Gabriel “I am the Lord’s servant. May everything you have said about me come true.” What a powerful statement of faith!

No matter the obstacle, the cost or the danger.

Bless me.

Can you count how many times you wanted to press the reset button? For a new life, a fresh start. In Genesis 31 (https://bit.ly/3CLSWOB) we see Jacob trying to do exactly that. Haunted by the memory of his past.

In Genesis 32 (https://bit.ly/2ZXTLFO), Jacob goes back home to reconcile with his family – a fight breaks out during the night. He wrestles with God Himself! Even though he could not win, Jacob would not give up, crying out “I will not let you go unless you bless me!”

God is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine. Have faith and believe that He will.
(Hebrews 11:1 – https://bit.ly/2TCYUzQ)

#TheBattlefield

Wonder Woman bravely walks out onto No Man’s land and draws the enemy’s fire. This causes others to gain courage and follow behind. She leads the troops in victory against the seemingly undefeatable enemy. Whew!

Trained, armed and equipped warriors cannot fulfil their full potential stuck back at base camp. They need to be on the battlefield. God’s adventures may overwhelm, stretch or even scare you. Trust him. He knows what He’s doing. You just need to courageously obey, Mighty Warrior. “Strength! Courage! Don’t be timid; don’t get discouraged. GOD, your God, is with you every step you take” (Joshua 1:9 – https://bit.ly/2yjIwcQ).
