Have you ever stepped out to follow God, only to discover when you got to where you were going, that it didn’t look anything like you thought it would? Has your obedience ever been followed by trials and testing? This is exactly what happened to Abram after he obeyed God’s call. It all started out very different than he must have imagined, but at just the right time, God fulfilled every one of His promises. If you are faithfully following God, but your life isn’t what you hoped for, keep trusting Him. He will not steer you wrong.
Jesus: The Promise Received
The most amazing thought about Christmas is that the holy, all-powerful God of heaven came down and became one of us in order to show us the way. Christmas can all be summed up in four words: “God is with us.” Those four words forever changed history, and they are the same four words that can change every moment of our lives today. Whatever our circumstances, whatever life may bring, we can find peace and hope and meaning in knowing that God is with us!
