Have you been waiting for years on a promise from God to manifest in your life, but it seems like it won’t ever come to pass?
Genesis 15 tells of the Lord’s covenant promise to Abraham to bear a child. Because he was old in age, Abraham initially had doubts about the covenant. But God confirmed his promise and told Abraham he would have as many descendants as the stars in the sky. Abraham still had doubts, but ultimately made a sacrifice at the Lord’s request and after he grew tired of waiting, he took matters into his own hands.
Oftentimes, we get in the driver’s seat, just like Abraham did, only to end up in a tougher situation than we were beforehand. We want further explanations of God’s visions and timetable, but we must learn to make sacrifices and follow the steps God orders for us, even if we don’t completely understand the purpose. We must be willing to step outside of our comfort zones.
Even though Abraham faltered, God was still with him and brought his promise to pass. And through God’s grace, we are also given a second-chance when we lose faith and doubt him. As believers, we must lean on God and allow him to work in our lives in his perfect timing. He did the impossible in Abraham’s life by blessing him with a child at the age of 100, so no problem we face here on Earth is too big for God to handle.
If you desire to free your mind of limited thinking and strengthen your faith in those times of uncertainty, I encourage you to get a copy of my teaching titled “Abraham’s Lean.” It’s about Abraham’s mental struggle as he waits for God to make good on his promise. In this message, I’ll walk you through the lessons presented and how you can use them to ease your anxiety until God delivers on his promise in your life.
Fix your thoughts on God and watch how he transforms your situation into something bigger and better than you ever imagined.
God bless you!
Living in Grace and Peace,
