“For I know him, that he will command his children and his household after him, and they shall keep the way of the Lord, to do justice and judgment; that the Lord may bring upon Abraham that which he hath spoken of him.” (Genesis 18:19).
God wants people that He can depend upon. He could say of Abraham, “I know him, that he will command his children . . . that the Lord may bring upon Abraham that which he hath spoken.” God can be depended upon; He wants us to be just as decided, as reliable, as stable. This is just what faith means.
God is looking for men on whom He can put the weight of all His love and power and faithful promises. God’s engines are strong enough to draw any weight we attach to them. Unfortunately, the cable which we fasten to the engine is often too weak to hold the weight of our prayer; therefore God is drilling us, disciplining us to stability and certainty in the life of faith. Let us learn our lessons and stand fast.
God knows that you can stand that trial; He would not give it to you if you could not. It is His trust in you that explains the trials of life, however bitter they may be. God knows our strength, and He measures it to the last inch; and a trial was never given to any man that was greater than that man’s strength, through God, to bear it.
God is testing us day by day to see our strength and how we can withstand the pressures that surround us. He will not take you through the valley if you can face the situation. Unfortunately, many people start the journey and fail by the way. How do we know they have failed? When they began to get carnal, and blame everyone for their failures. While they are doing that God is building character on those that are faithful. Brethren many will be left behind for their own reasons they’ve created. The same pit they dug has their name written on it.
I pray to Almighty God that we will stay in the steps that our Master left us. Stay blessed and God bless.
