This chapter is so moving. To read of so many who have gone before us so many generations ago and be familiar with their stories, is amazing. It took FAITH. Faith to believe the God of the Universe was speaking into their lives, crafting a better promise, and to live and act in a way to allow the promise to happen. Although not perfectly. And not everyone received the promise themselves, as can be read.
Thank You Lord for continuing to move in the same way, today. Please empower us by Your Spirit to align our lives with Your promises. Help us to see or remind us of Your promises, the promises that come with living our Salvation in You. Which, is the ultimate promise. You promised from the very beginning You would provide a way out of sin, and You did (Genesis 3:14-15). Thank You.
On days we feel as though we are walking a tight rope across a canyon, balanced between all the fear, pain and hurt in our lives, and all the love, freedom and goodness flowing from You, thank You for reminding us You're with us, we'll finish well keeping our eyes on You, and Your net of grace is never removed. In Jesus Christ's Name Amen.
