GROSS ARE THE ABSURDITIES of unbelief. Abraham believed God and it was accounted to him as righteousness. What did Abraham believe? God and what God spoke to him, even when Abraham couldn’t see it and didn’t like it. And then he went forth in obedience. Many people proclaim, “I believe in God!” Yet, so do the demons. But do you BELIEVE God? I’m going to go out on a limb and say most do not.
IF you truly believed God, you would take Him at His Word. Anything you read in Scripture, whether you like it or not, whether it applies to your situation or not, whether you can imagine it or not, whether you thinks it impossible or not; you would believe Him. Our confidence must not rest or depend upon what God is presently doing but upon who He is. I hear a lot of this, “I just don’t believe that God would do that!” That’s because you do not really BELIEVE God and so you refuse His Word because it doesn’t line up with your ideology.
There’s a myriad of reasons why unbelief is so rampant right now, but I believe the main reason to be that there’s no fear of the Lord. “By humility and the fear of the Lord are riches, and honor, and life”. Prov 22:4 Every man is doing what’s right in his own eyes. We are in the time of calling good evil and calling evil good. Woe to these. We are only the spiritual seed of Abraham
IF we follow in his same steps of faith and obedience. “For if God did not spare the natural branches, He may not spare you either. Therefore consider the goodness and severity of God: on those who fell, severity; but toward you, goodness, if you continue in His goodness. Otherwise you also will be cut off. And they also, if they do not continue in unbelief, will be grafted in, for God is able to graft them in again.”Romans 11:21-23 Abraham BELIEVED and obeyed God, “And He said, “Do not lay your hand on the lad, or do anything to him; for now I know that you fear God, since you have not withheld your son, your only son, from Me.”” Genesis 22:12 NKJV#runyourrace
