Faith and waiting go hand in hand, and both are nurtured through obedience to God’s will. When the character and reason of Sarai and Abram were tested in Genesis 16, they failed to trust in God’s promises to them. When we are tempted to take matters into our own hands, the result is often chaos as well. Alistair Begg reminds us of the blessings that come from doing God’s will, God’s way in the waiting rooms of our lives.
Venturing In Faith
Abraham’s journey of faith could be described as a series of new beginnings. Although his walk contained many pitfalls and failures, Abraham learned that with God, failure is never final. Abraham’s trust grew with each new beginning as he responded in obedience to God’s call. Throughout this series from Genesis, Alistair Begg explores faith as expressed through the changes and challenges of life. The measure of our faith grows as our understanding of God’s character grows, and we can walk boldly in light of His promises.
