Topic: Victorious Faith: The Example of Abraham
Fire Scripture: Heb.11:8-11
8 By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went.
9 By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise:
10 For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God.
11 Through faith also Sara herself received strength to conceive seed, and was delivered of a child when she was past age, because she judged him faithful who had promised.
Outline: MFM Devotional 11 September 2021 Today
Faith is a complete trust or conﬁdence in someone or something. Genuine faith, the Bible says, is more than precious gold that perishes (1Pet. 1:7). The Christian life is a life of faith. It is the issue on which the matter of salvation depends. Faith is the key that opens the door to eternal life. It is the divine channel by which you can receive the beneﬁts of Christ’s saving work. Abraham’s life was built on faith in God.
At God’s command, he left home and went to another land which he knew not without questioning God (Gen 12:1). He believed the covenant that God made with him and that He would bless him. In obedience to God, Abraham was even willing to sacriﬁce his son Isaac. Faith requires action as we see in Abraham. Faith without action is passive and dead. Faith involves giving up your will in order to do the will of God.
When you believe in the promises of God for your provisions like Abraham, He will prove Himself as the Jehovah Jireh. Abraham believed God even when there was no ram for the sacriﬁce. He went to lay down his son’s life, but suddenly, the Lord provided a substitute. Remember, you cannot provide adequate sacriﬁce for your sins. Your good works, church membership or position cannot atone for your sins.
Jesus, the Lamb of God, is the only atonement for sins now and forever. The Bible says the just shall live by faith (Rom 1:17). Faith brings answers to prayer (Matt 21:22). Faith brings healing (Gal 2:20). You can develop your faith by listening to the word of God because faith comes by hearing the word of God (Rom 10:17).
What you listen to will affect what you believe. Develop the measure of faith given to you by God by putting it into action (Rom. 12:3). Develop a life of praise and worship. Praising God is an act of faith and it helps your faith to grow. A victorious faith obeys God’s instructions as Abraham did. It will drive away fear and make you to live a victorious life. Put your faith into action today and experience the raw power of God.
Heb 11:1 – “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen
Faith is seeing light with your heart when all other eyes see is darkness.
Today, your faith in Christ makes you whole, in the name of Jesus.
1. The God of Abra’am praise
Who reigns enthroned above;
Ancient of everlasting days,
And God of love:
Jehovah, Great I AM,
By earth and heaven confess’d
I bow and bless the sacred name
For ever bless’d.
2. The God of Abra’am praise,
At whose supreme command
From earth I rise, and seek the joys
At His right hand:
I all on earth forsake
Its wisdom, fame, and power;
And Him my only portion make,
My shield and tower.
3. He by Himself hath sworn;
I on His oath depend;
I shall, on eagle’s wings upborne,
To heaven ascend;
I shall behold His face,
I shall His power adore;
And sing the wonders of His grace
