LIVING THE LIFE OF FAITH
This is the sum of the years of Abraham’s life which he lived: one hundred and seventy-five years. Then Abraham breathed his last and died in a good old age, an old man and full of years, and was gathered to his people.
Genesis 25:7-8 NKJV
The Bible explain in details the life of Abraham, he was a man of God who lived by faith. He obeyed the will of the Father and walked in the way of righteousness. God was with him and showed Himself faithful in Abraham's life.
These things were written to teach us that we ought to live the life of faith, they were written to show us that if we put our faith in God will receive the reward from Him. The story of Abraham shows that God is in control over every event that takes place in someone's life. It shows He has the ability to do anything and choose whoever He wants to use in this life.
This is why you shouldn’t look yourself down or think you are of no importance in this life. We see God calling Abraham when he was 75 years old. It doesn't matter how many years you were away from God but still God can use you mightily. The story of Abraham teaches us to depend on God in everything and trust God even in the times of darkness in life.
This morning, I want to encourage you to live the life of faith. I don't know what you have been going through this year; but I believe with all of my heart that God wants you to have faith. He wants you to live by faith and not by sight. God wants you to trust Him even if all things seem to be different from what you expected them to be.
There are some things that have happened in your life that God intended to use them to build your faith. That's why you have seen God because you had no choice but believe in Him in your trials and temptations. In your prayers ask the good Lord to perfect your faith everyday; ask Him to help you live by faith while you are waiting for His Second Coming.
Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer....
Dear Heavenly Father, I'm asking that You may help me to live the life of faith in all the days of my life. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
