My Prayer For You...January 5, 2014

My Prayer for you and me this week is this...

we will choose to live out (in word and deed) the belief that God will do everything necessary to keep His promises

Abraham, in his old age, believed God would provide the wife Isaac would need from Abraham's people to fulfill the promise God had already made to Abraham, which was to multiply his "descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky and as the sand on the seashore." (Genesis 22:17)

So, Abraham sent his trusted servant to retrieve a wife for Isaac, encouraging his servant with this admonition, "The LORD, the God of heaven, who brought me out of my father's household and my native land and who spoke to me and promised me on oath...He will send His angel before you so that you can get a wife for my son from there." (Genesis 24:7)

Abraham's faith in God's provision became the servant's faith experience as the LORD brought Rebekah - the answer to the servant's prayer.  And in response to Abraham's faith, the servant's prayer and God's answer, the servant testified to Rebekah and her family of God's goodness and provision. They all believed God as a result.  This is the multiplied ripple effect of living out faith in action.  (Genesis 24)

Lord, Jesus, thank You for the examples of Abraham, his servant, and Rebekah, who lived out faith in word and deed by believing You are able to do all things necessary for You to keep Your promises.  Meet us, Lord, right where we are in the midst of our present circumstances and remind us of all Your past faithfulness. Jesus, give us faith eyes to see the ripple effect of living out our faith and trusting You; You alone are able.  We declare our trust in You glorified as we praise Your Holy and Faithful Name. Amen and Amen!
