Daily Fountain 2017 - You Are Not Alone






Thursday May 18

Bible Reading:     Gen. 15: 1 - 6
Topic:         You Are Not Alone

The assurance God gave to Abram as we notice in today's passage was timely.

Abram may have feared possible revenge from the Kings he defeated to rescue Lot.

Just as Abram, God understands our fears and states of minds. He often speaks to reassure us of His presence in times of trouble. He does this through His Words and other life experiences.

God promised to be Abram's Shield and exceeding great reward. Likewise, God will not allow the enemies or challenges you may be facing to subdue you.

The realities of life often becloud our faith. Abram may have given up hope of having children - because of his and his wife's old age  - but before God nothing is impossible (Luke 1: 37)

Against all human wisdom and limitations, God still assured Abram that his own son would be his heir and besides, his descendants would be numerous.

God will change that bitter water in your life to sweet water (Ex. 15: 23 - 25); He will cause you to laugh and celebrate from that hopeless situation. Just trust and obey Him as Abram did in verse 6. Your miracle is on the way

Prayer:

Strengthen my trust in You Oh Lord and give me the grace to remain faithful till your time of visitation

Memory Verse:   Gen. 15: 6

"And he (Abram) believed the Lord and He counted to him for righteousness"
