as it is written, “I have made you the father of many nations”—in the presence of the God in whom he believed, who gives life to the dead and calls into existence the things that do not exist.
Many believers will never come to the place where they see themselves become who God has created them to be. The reason for this is not because what God said is impossible. The reason is that too many people put more weight on what they see (or don’t see) rather than what God says about them. Those who have the faith to take hold of God’s promises will see them come to fruition, those who do not will end up living a life that accomplishes far less than what it was intended to. The fact that God couldn’t see light, didn’t stop Him from calling it into existence. The fact that Abraham couldn’t have children didn’t stop him from believing what God had promised him would come to pass. Even when God asked him to sacrifice the son that he finally had late in life, he was quick to obey. You cannot allow things that are dead in your life, or things that you feel you need and don’t have, to outweigh what God has said. You didn’t physically see Jesus die for you or resurrect from the dead but you still trust that He can save you. The same faith that saved you is more than enough to revive those dead things in your life that are keeping you from becoming who God has ordained you to be. Will you be the one who puts more weight on His Words than what you see? Or will you be content accepting whatever circumstances life throws your way? – Love and Blessings, Pastor Jeff
