Do What Abraham Did

John 8:39-40 Read it yourself

Abraham believed God and it was credited to him as righteousness.

Belief is not just the working of the head, thinking and agreeing, but putting the words into action.

Abraham left his country of origin when God said go.
Abraham went to sacrifice Isaac when God said to do it.
Abraham listened to the promises of God and accepted them (although there is the instance of him trying to fulfill the promise with Hagar).
Abraham spent the rest of his life living in tents in the promised land as a "sojourner" without a home.

Abraham died without seeing the fulfillment of the promise God made to him (offspring as the sand on the seashore or the stars in the sky).

I must be patient and wait for God to fulfill the promises he has placed within my heart. - I want to speak effectively. Communicating God's word and the message of the kingdom in a way that people understand and apply in their own lives.

Lord, I know your promises are true and that you are faithful and do things in your own time. Encourage me to wait and be patient for your time. Help me to live each day as if it were my last and to be mindful of your presence in my life.
