Belief vs Unbelief
Abram sure had a loooong day didnt he??
First Abram had to go save his nephew Lot, then Melchizedek came to him and blessed him, and finally the king of Sodom came to him wanting the people that Abram just saved!!
Have you ever had a day like that, where you start out with a battle and it ends with a temptation?
You work all day..all week…and someone says “Girl let’s go drink!!”. Ole dude you vowed not to talk to again.. calls you at your lonely moment…..
We have ALL been there…
The Lord let Abram know that He was STILL here with him. Abram was tired, surely frustrated and just like we all do. He begin to question and doubt God and the promise.Abram was like “Ok God its been a long time since this promise…Is it going to happen? How is it going to happen?”
Gen 15:2-3 (NLT) 2 But Abram replied, “O Sovereign LORD, what good are all your blessings when I don’t even have a son? Since I don’t have a son, Eliezer of Damascus, a servant in my household, will inherit all my wealth. 3 You have given me no children, so one of my servants will have to be my heir.”
Heres what we must do!.
Matt 6:33-34 33 “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. 34 “Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.
God, give me a wife or husband. God fix my marriage. God, I need a new job. God, I need a new car. God, give me…?
What is on your Christmas list for God?
When we continually ask we do the opposite of Matthew 6:33-34. We seek these things first, then the kingdom of God.
• Heb 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
• Romans 10:17 So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
When you sit in church or read this study, are you listening to someone talk or just reading words. Or are you hearing God speak to you?
God hasent put you on hold! The fact is that God started working in your life the day you were born and He’s not finished yet.
If you were to walk out to your car and try to start it, do you doubt that it would start?
We put more trust in our friends; the authority of this world, our teachers, and even our man made machines then God.
But if God says something in His word, we doubt it and study it to make sure it’s true, and then not really believe it until it comes to pass.
And even worse, after it does come to pass, we start to doubt whether God did it or not.
Wow..what a way to treat an all powerful God!!?
Know that God….is a man of his word!!
