-So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. (Romans 10:17) KJV
We all recognize the name, Abraham, the Father of our Faith, from the Book of Genesis…. However, his name wasn’t Always Abraham and he wasn’t Always Full-of-Faith.
Abram had a difficult time believing God. It happens to the best of us….But bless God that He is patient with us and continues to reveal himself in our hearts, causing us to hold on tighter to what we believe.
Now, If God reveals Himself to us by His Word, shouldn’t we be diligent, on Our walk with Him, to keep reading, and hearing…and hearing His Word…thus, increasing Our faith.
Take a moment to look at Abraham’s
He laughed in the Face of God!!
Wow!! Yes!!…Abraham, the Father of our Faith, fell on the ground, laughing in response to God’s promise to give him a son at the ripened age of 100.
No…Abraham was not always full of faith. His name was Abram and he diligently walked with God, as He lead him into places he had never seen; to do things he had never done.
Abram took a “Faith Walk” with God, and somewhere along that 25 year walk, he finally believed God. Abram walked from faith – to faith; hearing and hearing God’s Words; over and over again.
God fulfilled His promises to and through Abram…and God not only called Abram, “Righteous,” because he finally believed, but He also called him “Father of Many Nations.” – thus changing his name to Abraham.
You know What??
Our God has a sense of humor….He goes on to bless Abraham with that son He promised him…and God called his son “Laughter” – (Isaac).
Oh God! Give me Your grace to continue on my faith walk with You. I just want to hear Your voice, Lord, speaking to my heart. Lead me in the paths of righteousness and call my name, ‘Faith-FULL.’
I’m ready to receive the fulfillment of your promises, with a heart filled with Joy and ‘Laughter.’
Now You can take a closer Walk with God…Pickup Your Bible and Read It, and Be Blessed!
