We read about a man of God called Abraham in the Bible. He was the son of a man called Terah (Genesis 11:24; Joshua 24:2). One day, God called him and said, "Leave your country, your people and your father's household and go to the land I will show you. I will make you into a great nation and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing" (Genesis 12:1-2).
The Lord who chose Abraham that day for such a good purpose wants to choose even you today. He takes pleasure in giving you His blessings.
How did Abraham’s life change? As the Bible says, “Without faith it is impossible to please God” (Hebrews 11:6), Abraham believed the Lord when He called him. He surrendered himself to Him and obeyed His Word with the faith that He who called will lead him. Obeying the Word of God is faithfulness (I Samuel 15:22). Yes, when we read the Bible every day, God wonderfully speaks to us concerning the things that we have to do and reveals His ways to us. He will bless us just as He blessed Abraham when we act in obedience to Him.
The Bible says, " ‘Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness,’ and he was called God's friend” (James 2:23). Besides having faith in God, obeying Him and becoming pleasing to Him, Abraham also became a friend to Him. The Lord also gave him the knowledge of truth pertaining to godliness and faith. Knowing the truth is the most pleasing thing to Him.
The Bible says, “…Without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to Him must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him” (Hebrews 11:6). As said in this verse, when you offer your prayers in faith, they will be acceptable to God. When you approach Him for your needs, you should believe that He is alive even today to bless you. Trust in His goodness and expect wonderful blessings from Him.
Loving Lord Jesus,
I believe in You and surrender my life to You. Please help me to obey Your commands and do your will. Transform my life and lead me to a place of blessing. Also, make me a channel of Your blessing to others.
In Your matchless name I pray,
