Today’s Encouragement 5/3/22

So that in Christ Jesus the blessing of Abraham might come to the Gentiles, so that we might receive the promised Spirit through faith… But now that faith has come, we are no longer under a guardian,  for in Christ Jesus you are all sons of God, through faith…  And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s offspring, heirs according to promise (Galatians 3:14, 25-26, 29 ESV).

As Believers in Jesus, we have been grafted into the family of God (see Romans 11), which means we have rights to the blessing of Abraham. We are heirs with Christ through faith to the promise. Abraham believed all that God promised him, even those things he could not see in that moment. He did not falter or waiver in his faith that God would fulfill those promises. His faith and complete trust that God would do what He said he would do prospered him and gave him favor with other nations surrounding him. God did not revoke His promises even when Abraham acted in his flesh and conceived Ishmael, or passed Sarah off as his sister. The promises made to Abraham were fulfilled.

As heirs to that promise in Christ, we can lay hold of it because it is also ours. Unless we behave and act in doubt that God will fulfill those promises in our life, God will not hold our mistakes and bad decisions against us. Even though we may not see how He will bring them to pass, we can stand assured that they will become evident in our lives. Look back and see all the faithfulness of God in your life, no matter how seeming small or large it was and know that just as He was faithful then, He will be faithful now and always.

You can wholeheartedly stand on what He has promised in His word. He will always fulfill it.
