And he believed in the Lord;
I love Abraham so much. He is such a great example of a righteous, faithful follower of God.
He was promised for a LONG TIME that he would be the father of many nations. And yet, he didn’t have any children. But he never faltered in his faith in God’s promises. He always believed, went where God asked him to go, did what God asked him to do—even and especially the hard things.
We are familiar with a few of the popular stories. But he did it in ALL the stories of his life. He submitted and followed and believed the Lord.
Do I always believe the Lord’s promises? The ones that say He asks me to do hard things? Illogical things? Things that make me uncomfortable? Things that cause me to walk in the darkness alone?
Abraham believed in the Lord. Do we?
