Identity

“We call Abraham “father” not because he got God’s attention by living like a saint, but because God made something out of Abraham when he was a nobody. Isn’t that what we’ve always read in Scripture, God saying to Abraham, “I set you up as father of many peoples”? Abraham was first named “father” and then became a father because he dared to trust God to do what only God could do: raise the dead to life, with a word make something out of nothing.” (Romans 4:17 MESSAGE)

With a word God made something out of nothing! If I was Abraham, (I am sure he was), I would be very thankful ! But the promise of God to Abraham was on his identity, in his name. He believed God that his name was a promise, it was prophetic. The promise was not only for his physical body to produce a seed on his old age, but because he believed Abraham became the father of many nations. On both accounts it is Faith, he believed. Not only he became daddy  but a father of all who will live and be justified by faith.

“What we believe about ourselves will either bind us or launch us” (S & W Bucklund)

Do we define ourselves by our bad experiences or by who we are in God?

What if God is calling us to bring life into what the world calls dead?
