FAITH IN GOD

image

LISTEN TO AUDIO VERSION

Gen 22:2-3

2 Then God said, "Take your son, your only son, Isaac, whom you love, and go to the region of Moriah. Sacrifice him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains I will tell you about."

3 Early the next morning Abraham got up and saddled his donkey. He took with him two of his servants and his son Isaac. When he had cut enough wood for the burnt offering, he set out for the place God had told him about.

NIV

Faith in God is the trust and dependence in Him that makes you willing to obey all His instructions and leadings because you have come to realize that doing so will be the best for you. A man that has faith in God has realized that God is more interested in His well-being and success than He is.

Abraham trusted in God so he knew God was not going to leave Him stranded. He Knew God was always faithful so he was willing to sacrifice his son because he knew God was more interested in His legacy and linage than Him. God could raise Isaac or create another Isaac, whatever it would be; He knew God was not going to let him down.

There is only one way of walking with God perfectly and this is the way of totally trusting in Him and obeying Him- Faith in God.

Jesus says we should take no thought for our lives; what we shall eat, what we shall drink and where withal shall we be clothed. He told us this because He wanted to establish in our hearts the foundation of having faith in God and totally trusting Him for our physical survival.

Go into today knowing that God is more interested in your welfare than you can imagine. All you need to do is ask Him for what you need; believe you will receive and you will receive it(see Phil 4:6). Also remember never to make an idol out of the methods God uses to bless you.
