Have you ever wondered what Abraham did that he became the friend of God and we became his seed forever?
2 Chronicles 20:7
“Art not thou our God, who didst drive out the inhabitants of this land before thy people Israel, and gavest it to the seed of Abraham thy friend for ever?
“And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God”.
The Lord values, honor and respect those who trust Him completely, those whose believe won’t shake even in the midst of trials.
What Abraham did was so simple he believed in God and he became the best friend of God. A relationship is mostly not going to work if trust is wanted, every relationship is built on the pillar of trust.
What does it mean to believe?
To accept as true, particularly without absolute certainty.
Abraham trusted God that there was absolutely nothing that God wanted to do without having to talk to Abraham about it.
The question now is that Who have you believe? Do you know whom you have believed?
In the midst of all Abraham encountered he believe was not shaken even at the point of life and death he still held on to his faith.
He knew whom he has believed, do you know that you can also become a friend of God? Yes, you can, all He wants from you is to believe.
Timothy also believed Him with the whole of his life and even in the midst of storms he was standing strong and was basking in His Grace because that was all that matters to him.
2 Timothy 1:12
“For the which cause I also suffer these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he can keep that which I have committed unto him against that day”.
What are those things that are making you shake? What are the trials and tests? Don’t forget you are not alone in this
“These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world”.
It is normal to face tribulation even Jesus our practical example, while He was on earth was tested even till His last breath He still believes.
Whatever the case may be, hold on to your believe, hold on to He who can save you, don’t forget it may tarry but it won’t tarry. That is the only way to make God happy, believe Him with the whole of your being, he cherishes them.
