Faith to live by the things we hope for

Day 28 (03 Sept 2017, Sunday)

Since we are Abraham’s offspring, we have to ask God for the same faith that Abraham had - faith to live by the things we hope for (Hebrews 11:1).  Abraham trusted God fully in all His promises, and he had no room for doubt in his heart.

It was such faith that drove him to leave his own country, his kindred and his father’s house.  It was also such faith that compelled him to receive his nephew, Lot, with a magnanimous hear.  It was indeed such faith that he waited patiently for his promised son, Isaac, with much perseverance.
It was such faith in the One who calls into existence the things that do not exist, and the One who raises the dead to life, that he subsequently offered his beloved son, Isaac, to God in obedience.

The faith of Abraham was not lived out in the good seasons of his life where it was smooth and under control, but also when it was difficult, challenging and inconvenient.

Such faith enables us to be staunch when we are faced with challenges and difficulties.  It also enables us to live out a godly lifestyle amidst the hardships that we encounter.
What is more precious to us is that there is a need right now in Malaysia for the people of faith to influence others around them who are lost and persist on with our fervent prayers and life testimonies!

Pray for Family life and influence 

Pray for the strengthening of family relationships, between and children, and among siblings.
Pray for parents to be good role models for their children.  Pray for the healing and restoration of broken homes.

Pray for a deeper communication and understanding as well as love and forgiveness to fill each and every home.
Pray for God’s protection over families and against the enemy who seeks to bring strife, divorce and many unwanted incidents among married couples and family members.

Pray for strong discipleship efforts to be exemplified by parents within their homes, and for family prayer altars to be established to make Christ Jesus as the Master of their families.
