Galatians 3:6 – 6 Consider Abraham: “He believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness.”
So how did Abraham believe God? Was it by just saying, okay God, I believe that?
No Abraham showed he believed God by his actions. However it’s important to note when he didn’t take God at His word it led to repercussions. The story of not believing the seed would come from Sarah and he tried to force it through Hagar is still having ramifications till this day.
Actions speak louder than words.
If you keep telling me your going to do something and you don’t, your words mean nothing. If you tell me you love me and then give me no time, do anything for me, or talk well about me to others, then the talk is meaningless and cheap.
What is the most important thing in your life? If people watched you for awhile they would probably be correct in their guess. It would be where you spend your time and efforts and where your goals are aimed towards.
Did Abraham chase after His own goals? When he did it backfired. When he chased after God and the goal God had for him he flourished.
Believing God is listening to His voice and taking action.
We can all be used by God. Yet not many allow God to work through them.
Matthew 9:37 – 37 Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few.
There have been workers since the disciples walked with Christ, but the workers have always been few compared to those who could be helping the Kingdom.
You can help your Lord. It may be doing nursery once every 10 weeks, or helping to clean. It may be in being a prayer warrior or fixing something for a gathering. You have a ministry. Let Him use you. Listen to His voice. Because if you do and you believe God fully, it will be credited as righteousness.
