The Faithful One and the Faith of Abraham

May the Lord give us the faith of Abraham–for we know that He will provide our salvation, our sustenance, and the endowment of every other need:

‎”No distrust made [Abraham] waver concerning the promise of God, but he grew strong in his faith as he gave glory to God, fully convinced that God was able to do what he had promised. That is why his faith was ‘counted to him as righteousness.'” -Romans 4:20-22

Praise God that He is faithful, even when we are faithless… He does not remove His steadfast love despite our fickle faith and half-hearted love. He bestows the best of Christ to cover the worst of us–His righteousness for our sin!! And yet, through the Spirit of Christ, we have been given the gift of faith–to guide us to Christ and empower us to persevere in Him as we journey through a place that is not our Home.
