Isaiah 51:2 KJV
LOOK UNTO ABRAHAM your father, and unto SARAH that bare you: for I CALLED him alone, and BLESSED him, and INCREASED him.
Mathematics is often a challenge to many a youngster. I was not spared as a child,either. Just when I thought I’d understood the math, the whole thing would leave me disorganized. I’d often stare at some of the best mathematics kids in my class as if they were not of this world. It took maturity to enable me understand that all it required was following the teacher’s example. Math is a formula that is consistent. Understand the formula, you’ll soar.
In pretty much the same way, the successful Christian life has a formula. All you need to do is to FOLLOW Bible examples.
Hebrews 6:12 KJV
That ye be not slothful, but FOLLOWERS of them who THROUGH FAITH and PATIENCE inherit the promises.
By studying Bible Characters who walked with God, you’ll first of all notice the consistency of God in terms of faithfulness. Secondly, you’ll discover that these Bible characters generated proofs by their faith. A good study will reveal that nearly ALL Bible characters that walked with God faced the same challenges we face today, YET they beat the odds, scaled the hurdles, and produced living proofs.
How did they do it? BY FAITH & PATIENCE!! (Hebrews 6:12)
Examples therefore show us that what you consider impossible is doable. Learn from people who have gone ahead of you by observation and humility. Whatever you seek to achieve has already been done by someone else. Study their lives, challenges, attitude, actions and eventual success.
Jeremiah 6:16 KJV
“Thus saith the Lord , Stand ye in the ways, and SEE, and ASK FOR THE OLD PATHS, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls…..”
Attempting to reinvent the wheel mostly leads to frustration. I’m NOT condemning innovation and creativity but there are some unchangeable patterns you cannot alter and still succeed. Can you build a bi-level house without a foundation? Great shall be the fall.
Our Bible verse of today describes how God called Abraham alone and blessed and increased him. It further counsels that we imitate or look unto Papa Abraham and Sarah as examples to follow. Wherever your example arrives in any formula, you will also arrive IF you truly follow.
Abraham and Sarah ended up BLESSED and INCREASED!!! You will not end up LESS & DECREASED in the name of Yeshua. Faith powers Hope and Bible Hope does not disappoint.
