But today I was reading that famous passage in Romans 4:18-25 speaking about the great faith Abraham had when He was promised to have a son at such an old age. The specific passage that God brought to my attention today was Verse 20a...
Early on in my faith, God showed me something about my walk with him. It was a promise that has never left me. So my question when I read this today was, have I wavered through unbelief regarding the promise God made to me?
I would love to say I am just like Abraham. But I'm not. I waver. I fail. I lose sight. I get turned around. But God knew I would be like this. So he makes up the difference. Isn't that just like him? Loving us to completion? Bearing our burden so we may stand!
What is it today that makes your faith waver? Is it negative thoughts. Here's one that goes through my mind.
"Oh honey, that's not for you. That is only for special people"
....hmmm. LIES! Christ's victory is for ME in everything he purposes! and it's for YOU! He has incredible plans and will use the least of us to accomplish the most mighty deeds.
I am blessed by the thought that He is with me when none will go with me. And not one person on this earth can ever take this from me.
There may be roadblocks, troubles, and hardships. But we are only being trained like an Olympic athlete to be champions of the faith like Abraham.
I want to run my race today. I am overjoyed to run my race today. Enemy beware, because God is doing a new thing and HE has the victory.
I love that. It's still about loving him, trusting him, and HIS victory. It's still All about HIM!
Lord, let your spirit move and work in me. Let it be, no matter the cost.
