Keep the Faith

Genesis 18 - 20

Today the words that caught my attention are things the LORD did in Genesis 18:1 the LORD appeared, 18:22 the LORD remained, in 19:29 But God had listened.  Abram kept the faith and the LORD took action.

Do we belief all the things we say we do?  Are we proactive in petitioning the LORD for His help?  Abraham Interceded for Sodom and the LORD acted.  Over and over Abram showed his faith by putting his faith in the LORD!  Not little stuff either, big stuff.  He saved the righteous few left in Sodom and Gomorrah by petitioning on their behalf.  Are we petitioning the LORD with all of the things we are witnessing that we really need God's help with?  Look around things way bigger than any of us, but God can handle!  When are we going to believe it and start acting?

How often are we like Lot's wife?  We look back for whatever reason...perhaps longing,  curiosity, doubt, fear...the list could go on forever, but we see in this passage that looking back might not be a good thing for any of us.  We need to move forward believing keeping the faith.

I have a question for all of you.  In Genesis 18:17, who is the LORD asking the question?  "Should I hide my plan from Abraham?  What are your thoughts?

Take a leap of faith today!

Keeping the faith,

Good question. Maybe He was talking to the other men He was with. It makes me think of when God was creating man and He said let "us" make man....
The Trinity perhaps?????
