Lord was gracious, Lord did what he had promised, at the very time God had promised
Faith – although “good as dead” did not waver through disbelief, stengthened in his faith
I struggle with the same “me do” attitude that many do, trying to rely on myself first, then God when in trouble. God has given me challenges bigger than I can handle to help awaken and strengthen me to trust and rely on Him alone.
- No one can see the kingdom unless they are born again
- body good as dead, through faith strengthened and made the father of many nations, credited as righteousness, we inherit
- Birth through the word of truth that we might be a firstfruits of all created
- born again of imperishable seed
My Daily Journal
The grass withers and the flowers fall but the word of our God lasts forever. I know this and I believe it but I don’t understand it. The idea that we are born again not only into new life but from a imperishable seed.
We accept the gift of eternal life but struggle to trust that God could deliver a promise to give a chile to a 90 year old woman and 100 year old man. We trust the promise of heaven but try to supplement God’s wisdom and power in our daily actions on earth.
