"And he believed the Lord, and He counted it to him as righteousness." - Genesis‬ ‭15:6‬

God had told Abraham that he would have a child, that through that child would come a great nation and from that great nation would come the Savior whom God had promised. That was all wonderful but there was just one problem: Abraham was an old man - really old, and so was his wife. The expiration date on their child-bearing years has long passed.

But Abraham had the attitude that if God had said it, it must be true.

So Abraham went about his life, tended his cattle, ran his business and did whatever each day required, trusting in God’s promise in spite of all evidence to the contrary, in spite of what everybody around him thought about it.

God looked at Abraham’s simple faith in His Word and declared Abraham righteous. To this day, God holds Abraham up as an example of what the word “faith” means: Take God at His Word.

It means, “God said it; I believe it.”

Lord, give me a heart like Abraham’s. Forgive the times I have allowed myself to believe there would be no consequences to disobeying Your Law. Forgive the times when I have doubted the fullness of Your forgiveness for me, for Jesus’ sake. Give me a heart to go about my life assuming that what You have said is true. Amen
