“The Father of the Faith”

Genesis 12:1-9

Abram’s life was a testimony of faith, in James 2:23, Abraham is referred to as “the friend of God”. To receive this title Abraham became the model of faith simply by taking God at His word and obeying it. To walk in the kind of faith that Abraham had, we must believe God’s promises to us, and believe, too, that he knows how and when to bring them to pass.

I’m a victim of self belief and according to Romans 3:23, “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,” if we trust Him with all our heart and Acknowledge Him, He shall direct our path like Abraham. When we try to bring God’s promises to pass by our own efforts, there are always serious consequences. This is why it’s so important to avoid striving to fulfill God’s promises by yourself. Doing so will always backfire and produce results that will make you unhappy.

Have faith and obey like Abraham, and remeber God knew what he was doing in Abraham’s life and God knows what he’s doing and yours.
