How To Walk With God!!

-So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. (Romans 10:17) KJV

Hey, Neighbor!

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
“Faith Walk.”
(Gen. 17:16-17)

He laughed in the Face of God!!
(And Lived)

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.’

Amen!!

Now You can take a closer Walk with God…Pickup Your Bible and Read It.

Read it Aloud- and Hear God’s Words and Be Blessed!

Bible Trivia Thursday- Life Beyond 120!!

Hey Neighbor! 

I was talking with a friend just the other day about how Moses had lived a full life and even though Moses never got the chance to step his foot onto the Promised Land, his eyesight was still sharp and he still had a spring in his step at 120 years old. 

Moses maxed out his livelihood at 120, according to Genesis 6:3, where God tells us that He was done putting up with humans for hundreds and hundreds of years.

Prior to that, Adams descendants- all the way up to Noah lived extremely long lives. Like Seth who lived to be 912 years old, or even Lamech who lived for 782 years.  

Did you know that Lamech also had a son named, Methuselah, who is on record for having lived the longest life ever??

Can you guess how old Methuselah was when he gave up the ghost??

***********************************

Now What about these Patriarchs and their sons??

  • Abraham
  • Ishmael
  • Isaac
  • Jacob
  • Joseph

How old were they when they gave up their ghosts??  And Can you Place them in Chronological order according to the length of their lifespans??

For Example: 

1. Methuselah(969) 2. Seth(912) 3. Lamech (782)

**********************************

Super-Faith Sunday Answer – ‘Faith-full’ Sarah

Hey Neighbor! 

It’s Tuesday, and Today I have your Super-Faith Sunday Answer!!

*****************************

Now what kind of answer do you give your husband when he wakes you up at the crack of dawn and then ushers you to quickly pack a bag and says, “Let’s go!! 

As she wipes the sleep from her barely opened eyes, she says, “Abe, Where are we going??”

We know that his Answer could have only been – “I don’t know yet, baby…but come on…let’s go!”

Now this is a really good wife right here – This Sarai!!

She could have rolled right on over and told this man to lay his crazy tail down, but instead she ‘faith-fully’ and dutifully grabs her most essential things and follows her husband. 

In Hindsight, we know that Sarai and Abram were headed to the land of Canaan, but at that time, they were leaving Haran, with no destination in mind, merely following the command of a voice that they did not recognize.

This was a new kind of ‘god’ to them- not one of their voiceless and sedentary images that they were accustomed to worshipping

This one spoke- and quite powerfully too, but not in a scary or spooky sort of way, but most emphatically!! 

God had called Abram, awakening Him with the Words, “Go!”

  • NOW [in Haran] the Lord said to Abram, Go for yourself [for your own advantage] away from your country, from your relatives and your father“s house, to the land that I will show you. (Genesis 12:1)

Now – I’m pretty sure I just heard Him say Go, but He didn’t really say- Where?? 

That’s Right!! God was doing what I call His, ‘walk by faith thing.’ In other words…

Trust My Words for now- and I will fill in the gaps later!! 

Now, These ‘Words’ were spoken to Abram- not Sarai. Of course we know Lot is just along for the ride- Now that’s another story for another day-🫖 Because Today, I am suppose to be telling You about Sarah!! 

So this ‘faith-full’ wife follows her husband…

Who is following an unknown voice…

and Lot is following them!!

Wow!!

But Seriously Now- Abraham has heard the voice of The One True and Living God- The God Who produced and formed the world and all things in it -The Lord of heaven and earth!!

Abraham has heard God and has believed- and because Sarah is a loving , patient, and ‘faith-full’ wife, She will follow this Man wherever His God leads him!! 

Whether it be to Egypt – Where Abe Gives her away to Pharaoh, saying “She is my sister!”

Or Whether it be to Gerar- Where once again, Abe Gives her to another king, Abimilech, saying, “She is my sister!”

Sounds like a Story we would hear about on Divorce Court- huh??

But let’s have a little Patience with Old Abe, after all- He is still following God!! 

In fact, Abe has established a relationship with God and the Two of them are bonding- although Abe makes a mess from time to time!! 

Now Sarah, is still following her husband and during those 25 years at his heels, 

She has gone along with the ‘She’s my Sister’, act!! (partially true) 

She has gone along with the name change thing!! Sarai vs Sarah!!

She has heard all the Promises!! (second-hand)

But Sarai still has had no visit from God, nor a son- as promised!!

She grew impatient, angry, disappointed, and extremely jealous because of Abe and Hagar and their son, Ishmael!!

You see…All the riches that she received in Egypt and in Gerar were not enough to fill her empty womb…Until God Shows Up for Sarah!!

Yes!! Finally! A One-on-One visit with God!! 

No!! Not with Abraham as a ‘go-between!’

God shows up in Sarah’s life and gives her His Personal Promise!! 

And unlike Abe, When God makes a Promise, He Keeps It!! 

God Gave Sarah a Son and Called Him Laughter!! 

Why Laughter??

You see when God showed up the year prior, visiting Abe, and promising him a child through Sarah…Sarah heard all these things and Laughed!! 

 -And the Lord asked Abraham, Why did Sarah laugh, saying, Shall I really bear a child when I am so old? (Genesis 18:13)

Well, Sarah denied that she Laughed!! 

After all, She was 89 years old!! 

But just one year later, God Showed and Proved Himself in Sarah’s life – breaking through her stubborn unbelief!! 

God showed Sarah that nothing is impossible with Him, and that nothing is too hard or too wonderful for the Lord!!

Sarah, like Abraham, was now a firm, and righteous believer in The Almighty God!! 

He was no longer ‘Abraham’s God,’ but He was now Sarah’s God- And That Same God called Sarah, ‘Faith-Full!!’

Bible Trivia Thursday- God ’Pre-named’ Him!!


Hey Neighbor! 

It’s 3/24/2022 and Today is Trivia Thursday!! 

This week we have been learning about God’s ‘faith-full’ servant, Hagar.  Now Hagar was Abram’s Egyptian concubine who bore him his very first child. 

Remember, It was in the wilderness, after Hagar had taken flight from her mistress, Sarai that she was confronted by the Angel of the Lord, who told her that she was going to have a baby boy and his name would be called, ‘God Hears’ – or Ishmael. 

Now this was the first time that We’ve seen God ‘pre-name’ someone in the Bible; Yes – Named by God before birth!!
Again – First time, but not the last!!

In fact, Abraham will become the Father of several more ‘pre-named’ descendants, who were blessed with ‘God-given’ names before they had even exited their mother’s womb – and at other times, before the child had ever been conceived!!  

Thus – Today’s Trivia Thursday Challenge –

Can You identify Abraham’s ‘Pre-named’ descendants, by matching the son with his mother?? 

Ex: He was a descendant of Abraham, and He was the son of Hagar. God ‘pre-named’ him, Ishmael.

Grab Your Bibles and Have Fun!!

************************************

  1. He was a descendant of Abraham, and He was the son of Sarah. God ‘pre-named’ him, ____________________. 
  2. He was a descendant of Abraham, and He was the son of ‘Uriah’s Wife.’ God ‘pre-named’ him, _______________________. 
  3. He was a descendant of Abraham, and He was the son of Elizabeth. God ‘pre-named’ him, ______________________. 
  4. He was a descendant of Abraham, and He was the son of Jedidah. God ‘pre-named’ him, _______________________. 
  5. He was a descendant of Abraham, and He was the Son of Mary. God ‘pre-named’ Him, _______________________.

God’s ’Faith-full’ Servant- Hagar!!

And He said, Hagar, Sarai“s maid, where did you come from, and where are you intending to go? And she said, I am running away from my mistress Sarai.  (Genesis 16:8)

Hey Neighbor!

Yesterday we unveiled our ‘Faith-full’ Female of the Week – Hagar.

First, I have to say thanks to Beverley, from her blog – ‘Becoming the Oil and the Wine’ for submitting another correct answer to our Super Faith Sunday Challenge- where each week – we highlight 1 ’faith-full’ female from the Bible.

Beverley is 2 For 2!! 💕💕

Thanks so much, Beverley👏👏👏👏

Now when we first meet Hagar she was simply an Egyptian servant girl, gifted to Abram in exchange for Sarai. 

Now this is of course before God sent Abraham (father of a multitude) and Sarah (Princess) down to the Social Security Office to document their official name changes.🤣 (Genesis 17:5, 15)

You do Remember that God changed both of their names, but that’s a story for another day…today we are focusing on Hagar, Abram, and Sarai!!  

Now while Sarai and Abram were temporarily living in Egypt, Pharaoh had taken Sarai into his harem, convinced by Abram that Sarai was nothing more than his beloved sister!!  

I know- Abram and Sarai were ‘extra,’ as the kids like to say!! 😂 

I guess that’s why God changed their names – to settle those two down – Lol! 

So Anyway, Let’s try to stay focused on Hagar- She was a handmaid gifted to Abram in Egypt, as a sort of dowry from Pharoah to Abram, in exchange for Sarai joining his harem. 

She (Hagar) accompanied Abram and Sarai and their caravan of sheep, oxen, he-donkeys, menservants, maidservants, she-donkeys, and camels departing from Egypt…After a plague-afflicted Pharaoh ran them both out of town for their ‘tall tales!’- 🤯I will spill tea on this another day🫖

So at this point Abram remained childless, and Sarai remained barren. 

But Sarai had a bright idea 💡 

She decided to give Abram her Egyptian  Handmaid, Hagar to wife (secondary), in hopes that Hagar would conceive a child by Abram and thus, she would serve as a surrogate mother for Abram’s son and heir.

This was not a God-Approved Idea!! 

Well, Sarai didn’t have to exert too much effort in order to convince Abram to go along with her hair-brained scheme and before you know it…Hagar is pregnant!! 

Now after Hagar conceived, as my mother would’ve said, “Sarai had gotten beside herself!’

She looked down her nose at Sarai- forgetting her place- She was still just a servant and only a secondary wife, but Hagar was exalted in her own eyesight. 

Now when Sarai complained to Abram- the two of them played the blame game for a while- Until a vengeful Sarai, once again takes matters into her own hands. 

Now after being harshly afflicted by a ‘wrath-filled,’ overly-impassioned Sarai, Hagar runs as far as she can from home- hoping to run as far as Egypt!! 

But no matter how far Hagar had attempted to run to get away from Sarai- She could not outrun God!! 

God saw Hagar!! 

And although she felt inclined to run from her mistress, in her self-exalted mindset, God had not approved of Hagar’s misguided departure. 

God spoke to Hagar, calling her, “Sarai’s maid,” Reminding her that for 10 years, she had been blessed and favored in Abram’s household as a servant, until she permitted pride to overtake her. 

The Angel of the Lord admonished her and encouraged Hagar to repent- and to turn away from Egypt, and the Godless, idolatrous lifestyle that she had once known and instead….now take up His yoke of humility and return to her husband Abram, and submit to her mistress, Sarai!  

Trusting that He had seen her tears, and had heard her complaints about her mistress, if she would receive Him as her Lord, He would watch over her and give her a hope for the future and a prosperous outcome for her offspring. 

  • See now, you are with child and shall bear a son, and shall call his name Ishmael [God hears], because the Lord has heard and paid attention to your affliction.  (Genesis 16:11)

God had called Hagar out of Egypt for a purpose, and her future was pre-destined for God’s plans and purposes!! 

Hagar Believed God’s spoken promise, taking  hold of it as an undeserved gift!! 

After she had returned to herself, Hagar realized how blessed she had been in God’s presence. The very same God, whom her husband Abram had worshipped daily, He had now seen and acknowledged her- showing His love and concern for her, a lowly Egyptian handmaid. 

In recognition of her transformational encounter with God, Hagar memorialized the well of water where she had met The Angel of the Lord as, ‘Beer-lahai-roi’- A well to the Living One Who sees me (Genesis 16:14)
