Fearless Faith

I want Abraham's faith.

Look at his assurance and confidence in God's faithfulness. God told him to sacrifice his only son (Genesis 22:2), but Abraham KNEW that he and his son would return. He told his servants, "We will worship and then we will come back to you" (Genesis 22:5 NIV).

He had laser focus on God's promise that his descendants would be greater than the stars. He went to the point of destroying the seed of that promise before God provided a substitute. I believe that all the way until that point, Abraham knew he and Isaac would still return. That's faith!

In sight of even death, will you trust that God's promises will still come to pass, or will fear and doubt make you quit early?

I want Abraham's faith! How about you?
