Abram was 75 years old (Gen. 12:4) when God told him to pull up his tent stakes and get moving – with the promise of many descendants. It took twenty-five years (Gen 21:5) for the promise to be fulfilled.
As the years passed, Abraham struggled to believe the promises of God, the evidence of the faith struggle is laced throughout the story. But ultimately Abraham believed God, and it was that faith that gave him waiting power.
“And [God] took him outside and said, “Now look toward the heavens, and count the stars, if you are able to count them.” And He said to him, “So shall your descendants be.”” (Genesis 15:5, NASB95)
The very next verse declares Abraham’s faith. It is the essence of our own experience: Faith amidst struggling faith.
Like Abraham though, we are not dependent upon the greatness of our faith, but rather upon the faithfulness of our God.
Set aside time today to meditate upon God’s faithfulness. While we seek him and wait for Him, know that it is God who is faithful to pursue his glory.
