So today i was reading about Sarah and Abraham and wow. That women is seriously my hero right now.
She moved away from everything she has ever known to follow her husbands calling... (been there)
She was taken capture to become a harem twice...(Thank the Lord we don't have to do that anymore)
She was barren...(Thank- ou Jesus that i don't have to have that pain)
She suffered in famen and moved again....
I think the biggest thing is not only did she just trust God she trusted Abraham her husband her lover. She didn't cuss him out or get snotty when she couldn't get pregnant. She didn't demand a palace or new linens when they were forced to flea. She didnt' question Gods calling... She just went.
Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. Hebrews 10:23
Sarah was amazing with character and integrity she held onto Gods promises and at the age of 90 bore a beautiful son!!
Come on how many of us have that kind of faith eh?
1Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.
Now it just dawned on me that God has us wait for things for a reason.....
* It will increase the meaning behind the promise.... When we get what he promised it will be so much more of a meaning. That God gave us something that was so important. Having a desire for something makes it sweeter when you get it.
"There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under heaven" Ecc 3:1
*Waiting increases our Faith! We have to trust God our father our daddy. We have to embrace that he loves us enough to provide for us and give us his promises.
"Praise be to the LORD, who has given rest to his people Israel just as he promised. Not one word has failed of all the good promises he gave through his servant Moses. 1 Kings 56:3
So my goal: TO TRUST GOD FOR:
The Peace of my family and other families.
Marriages to be restored
The sell of our Condo along with the sell of my friends homes (cheryl,melanie,PA & Brooke)
That God will provide for families in our congergation in a time of horrible economic depression
More goals to trust my hubby unconditionally that he is hearing from God!
