THEME: WAIT ON GOD
“By faith Abraham obeyed when he was called to go out to the place which he would receive as an inheritance. And he went out, not knowing where he was going. By faith he dwelt in the land of promise as in a foreign country, dwelling in tents with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise; for he waited for the city which has foundations, whose builder and maker is God.
-By faith, Abraham waited on God and His promises. Through the same faith he obeyed God’s instructions, leaving the city of Haran to Canaan; the city whose builder and maker is God. Upon God’s promise, Abraham became the father of faith, the father of a great nation whose descendants have since become like the stars and the sand by the seashore. Waiting on God is a demonstration of faith. Some believers wait on the Lord passively and others expectantly. Those who wait expectantly; put in their hope in Christ for an answer to their prayers. Abraham waited on God’s promises expectantly for a long time, and after he waited; he begot Isaac even when Sarah was considered barren. We are called to apply faith and works in God as we wait expectantly upon His promises through prayer. Like Abraham received his promise, we too will lay hold of our blessings in this new year and decade that the Lord has prepared for us.
Thank You Lord for Your grace upon our lives, and for enabling us to see this new day in perfect peace. We welcome You Holy Spirit into our lives, take control of our lives, families, marriages, relationships, businesses, careers, education, intentions, decisions, future, churches, leadership and nation, for without You we can do nothing.
