Pastor reminded us at Bible Study this evening that, by faith, the promises God made to Abraham are ours. By faith, we conquer the problems that follow the promise and heal the pain that accompanies the strengthening process of preparation to receive power.
By faith, we praise the Source of all good before, during and after His promises are fulfilled. Our part in this covenant is to walk before God in integrity as Abraham was required to do (Genesis 17). To do so, we must know that we know that we know Who God is. Oswald Chambers counsels us to keep this intimacy with Christ as first in our lives and out of our bellies shall flow rivers of living water (John 7:38).
