Topic: USE YOUR FAITH TO BIRTH YOUR JOY
Text: John 8:56
📖56….”Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and he saw it, and was glad.”
🔥In Proverbs 13:12, the Bible says, Hope deferred maketh the heart sick: but when the desire cometh, it is a tree of life. Whoever has studied the progression of Abraham’s history, must have seen that he had a sick heart when God’s promise for him to have a son was deferred. Hence, he had to ask God to recognize either Eliezer or Ishmael as his heir in Genesis 15:1-4 and 17:17-19 respectively. But finally, Abraham’s joy came when he saw through the eye of faith, the advent of God’s salvation through Christ Jesus to the world of his children; the world of faith.
🔥🔥Many Christians are not rejoicing while serving God today because they have not seen in advance, what harvest their services by faith in God, will produce. Abraham used his eye of faith (Ephesians 3:14,16-19), to see that his future was already settled favourably by God. Abraham saw in Isaac, a figure of the gospel days, which is Christ’s days as he sacrificed him in Mount Moriah – Hebrews 11:17-19. By offering the ram instead of Isaac, Abraham saw the principle of substitution which God was instituting in Christ.
🔥🔥🔥So, he rejoiced because he understood that the land of Canaan was guaranteed for his children as an everlasting possession. He also rejoiced when he saw God’s plan to send the Messiah to redeem his children from satanic bondage. Again he rejoiced because he discovered that even that Messiah would come from his own natural seed – Gal 3:16. Beloved BoLD readers, if Abraham could see God as calling those things that be not as though they were…Rom 4:17, you too can through your faith’s heart and eye, make God to call impossible things into your life. You only need to see through your faith eye like Abraham, and use that faith to birth your joy.
🙏Heavenly Father, open my spiritual eyes to see beyond every satanic limitation in my life, into your divine possibilities, in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏My father my father, cause the fruits of my body to generate unspeakable gladness to me like Abraham’s, in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏🙏Miracle working Father, as the single son of Abraham made history in Christ, let every child from my body be world of faith shaker and mover, in Jesus’ name.
THE BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:
I AM JUSTIFIED BY FAITH!
