Fit For God Works!

We call Abraham “father” not because he got God’s attention by living like a saint, but because God made something out of Abraham when he was a nobody.

Isn’t that what we’ve always read in Scripture, God saying to Abraham, “I set you up as father of many peoples”?

Abraham was first named “father” and then became a father because he dared to trust God to do what only God could do: raise the dead to life, with a word make something out of nothing.

When everything was hopeless, Abraham believed anyway, deciding to live not on the basis of what he saw he couldn’t do but on what God said he would do.

And so he was made father of a multitude of peoples. God himself said to him, “You’re going to have a big family, Abraham!”

Abraham didn’t focus on his own impotence and say, “It’s hopeless. This hundred-year-old body could never father a child.” Nor did he survey Sarah’s decades of infertility and give up.

He didn’t tiptoe around God’s promise asking cautiously skeptical questions. He plunged into the promise and came up strong, ready for God, sure that God would make good on what he had said.

That’s why it is said, “Abraham was declared fit before God by trusting God to set him right.” But it’s not just Abraham; it’s also us!

The same thing gets said about us when we embrace and believe the One who brought Jesus to life when the conditions were equally hopeless.

The sacrificed Jesus made us fit for God, set us right with God .

Perfect Life? Grateful life!

 

d2e3debe93c353f67acc49e6fd982e5dFar from been perfect! I have been turned inside out and outside in! I have been tossed here and there by storms – unplanned, unforseen, unexpected yet tumultuous.

Only then were my eyes opened to see, to see Him who created heaven and earth holding me steady standing strong in the midst of the raging storm.

My life so far is far from perfect but it is beautiful, blessed with joy and laughter, graced with miracles, signs and wonders, God’s own handwriting reflecting the love of the Most High God! The Alpha and Omega, my Lord and Saviour, the Only Constant in my life, my high tower, shield and protector, defense and advocate.

Joyously grateful for the past for it made sense of this beautiful present. What a transformation?  It could only have been God! And the future? Whao! I see it bright and more beautiful, colourful, peaceful, and adorned with precious jewels!

Oh Lord God Almighty thank you! Thank you for showcasing your power in my life, your loving kindness and grace, your gift bestowed on every soul.

Friends, please realign yourself to the will of God as outlined in the Scriptures. Be transformed by the renewal of your mind. Start looking for something to thank God for. See the best in every situation, look out for positivity, stop narrow mindedness, rejoice in the Lord, I say rejoice!

Shalom! Shalom!
