Daily Fountain 2017 - Radical Faith






Friday May 12

Bible Reading:     Gen. 12: 1 - 9
Topic:         Radical Faith

God instructed Abram to leave his father's house, family and country to a land that He would show him.

God did not tell him the name of the town, direction or description of where he was to go, yet Abram and his family set out on that journey.

Today, most of us would ask for details including the map of the place, the feasibility study and other logistics for this movement but Abram took a step of faith and embarked on the journey.

This is faith matched with words.

When Abram got to the land of the Canaanites, God appeared to him again and promised to give that land to his descendants.

Faith brings blessings and promotions.

Abram's radical faith set him apart and opened him up to God's favour.

Many times we are faced with very difficult and seemingly impossible tasks, In such a situation, we need to apply radical faith as Abram did in order to see results.

From today let us not be moved by the enormity and complexity of the problems, tasks or challenges facing us, rather let us be moved to action by the Greatness, Faithfulness and Ability of the Lord Who has called us.

Prayer:

Heavenly King, please clothe me with faith to believe and corresponding work to show my faith, I pray through our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, Amen

Memory Verse:   Gen. 12: 3

"And I will bless them that bless thee and curse him that curseth thee; and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed"
