I Am the God Of

Genesis 26:24 The Lord appeared to him that night and said, “I am the God of your father Abraham. Do not be afraid, for I am with you. I will bless you and multiply your descendants for the sake of my servant Abraham.”

Wow! For God to tell somebody that He is the God of someone. Put your name in the blank. “I am the God of _____________. For God to acknowledge He is your God to someone else, for Him to signal you out personally, by your name, how awesome is that. Read about Abraham and learn of the cost in how He followed God. Our question is are we willing to follow God anywhere and at any time and in any condition? Let’s be really honest with ourselves. We have so many excuses we mistaking lay call reasons: too tired, too sick, too busy, and on and on. Let’s ask God’s Holy Spirit to help us keep guard against such excuses. God will always give us what we need to follow Him but He will not take the first step of faith for us. First we take that step, then God provides.
