“Focusing on the PROMISE not the PROBLEM…”
Day 6 (Genesis 15)
1 After these things the word of the Lord came to Abram in a vision, saying, “Do not be afraid, Abram. I am your shield, your exceedingly great reward.” 2 But Abram said, “Lord God, what will You give me, seeing I go childless, and the heir of my house is Eliezer of Damascus?” 3 Then Abram said, “Look, You have given me no offspring; indeed one born in my house is my heir!” 4 And behold, the word of the Lord came to him, saying, “This one shall not be your heir, but one who will come from your own body shall be your heir.” 5 Then He brought him outside and said, “Look now toward heaven, and count the stars if you are able to number them.” And He said to him, “So shall your descendants be.” 6 And he believed in the Lord, and He accounted it to him for righteousness.
The moment Abraham focused on the problem, he became afraid, and even asked God to LOOK at his situation, as if God didn’t know it. In return, God took him out of his tent, out of that miserable state of mind and told him to LOOK at the stars, to focus on His promises instead! Abraham wanted a son but what God intended to do in his life was extraordinary, greater than his greatest dream.
How many are feeling depressed right now, even feeling like giving up… Why? They are making the mistake of focusing on their problems instead of God’s promises. As long as they do it, their hearts will remain filled with sadness, fears, worries and frustration and maybe you are one of these people…
You are falling into the traps of the evil spirits! They want you to focus on your problems so your heart may be filled with fears and doubts, then, moved by frustration, you begin to complain and confess defeat… next step, you give up!
Get out of your tent, take your eyes off the problems and focus on His promises! Do what Abraham did, believe! Though he knew his wife was barren, that it was humanly impossible for her to conceive, however, he believed God’s Word!
God is saying to you right now:
“Do not be afraid, (your name here!), I am your shield, your exceedingly great reward.”
Look at Abraham, look at the Promise! See you on the Altar.
