By Faith

“Brothers and sisters, let me take an example from everyday life. Just as no one can set aside or add to a human covenant that has been duly established, so it is in this case.  The promises were spoken to Abraham and to his seed. Scripture does not say “and to seeds,” meaning many people, but “and to your seed,” meaning one person, who is Christ. What I mean is this: The law, introduced 430 years later, does not set aside the covenant previously established by God and thus do away with the promise. For if the inheritance depends on the law, then it no longer depends on the promise; but God in his grace gave it to Abraham through a promise.  Why, then, was the law given at all? It was added because of transgressions until the Seed to whom the promise referred had come. The law was given through angels and entrusted to a mediator.  A mediator, however, implies more than one party; but God is one.” Galatians 3:15-20

The inheritance was given through a promise and is not obtained through the works of the law. It’s faith in Christ that one will retrieve the promise of the Spirit!

I have faith that God will bring me to the promise. I have faith that it’s not by who I am, how far I’ve come, or what I’ve done but is simply by walking faithfully, sincerely, and completely before the Lord.

Lord, I know You only request a genuine faith, assurance, and belief in You and what You are calling me to do. As such, I pray I do as Abraham did and go where You’re taking me – even though I do not know where I’m going. In Jesus name I praise You! Amen!

“By faith Abraham, when called to go to a place he would later receive as his inheritance, obeyed and went, even though he did not know where he was going.” Hebrews 11:8
