Some people use various means and methods to accomplish things in their lives. The Bible does not encourage you to follow somebody who is not using faith in God. Many people depend on earthly things – their connections, their nationality, or other earthly advantages – and are not practising faith in God. They are seemingly self-made people. A self-made man tends to depend on himself and believes that he can help himself, but a man who trusts in God knows that without God, he can’t make it.
The Lord Jesus Christ in Luke 18:24 says, “…How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the kingdom of God!” The “kingdom” in that passage refers to God’s way of doing things. He was not referring to heaven. It is going to be difficult for a man who is used to depending on the earthly system of doing things to transfer to God’s way of doing things.
Everything in the physical as far as Abraham was concerned did not encourage the fulfilment of the promise of God to him. Nevertheless, with his faith and patience in God together with the faithfulness of God, the promises came to pass. You can see the interplay of three forces in the life of Abraham from this scripture in our text (Heb. 11: 8-15): the faithfulness of God, the faith of Abraham, and the patience of Abraham.
If you will exercise faith and patience in God, the faithfulness of God is going to cause the promise of God to come to pass for you.
PRAYER: Lord, I put all my trust in You and I know that I will never be ashamed. Thank You for the assurance of victory I have in leaning on You in Jesus’ name. Amen!
