The Children of Abraham

Even when there was no reason for hope, Abraham kept hoping–believing that he would become the father of many nations. For God had said to him, “That’s how many descendants you will have!” And Abraham’s faith did not weaken, even though, at about 100 years of age, he figured his body was as good as dead–and so was Sarah’s womb.

— Romans 4:18-19 NLT

The father of faith believed God would bring His promises to pass.  We must all continue to trust that the Lords promises will not waver. What He has planned in your future will happen as long as we remain faithful and true to the will of God.  The Father does not bless us just to take it away the next year.  When He gives out blessings they have a residual connection to our up and coming future. He blesses with perpetuity knowing He has extended your life along with it.  God looks closely at the way Abram carries himself before He decided to bless a childless couple with endless supplies of seed to guarantee his line of success.

God took one child and made him nations with a plural.  He even blessed Abrams son outside of the promised child.  So God is fond of all creation.  Not just those who are chosen, but those who are not seeking the furtune and namesake.  Those who are willing to carve out for themselves a fantastic stake in life and be there with content.  God promises even when you and I feel dead and unproductive.  When we sit in the corner laughing at ourselves not knowing the full scale of His majestic plans.  God has not forgotten about you.  His plans are firm and sure.  He doesn’t habe to go back to the drawing board and redo any thoughts He has towards you.  Have faith in God.  You believe in a handful of things.  All He is asking is doubt free belief that He will bring to pass what He spoke over your life.  Honestly, we only want what He has spoken to happen, and not the days of fear and shame we spoke.  Like Job.  When he really didnt’t know why he was put under the spot light of the Almighty.  He felt as if he had sunk deeper than he could go.  But, the one thing that the devil bet would happen, Job never even thought of.  We cannot bury ourselves in pity because life seems to be against us.  We just get up the next day and work at doing what is right anyhow.  Saints lets remember this one thing.  Those patriarchs in the Scripture did not have a Bible like we do.   They lived what they believed.
