Believing the Promises of God - in His Word

Against all hope, Abraham in hope believed… Without weakening in his faith… Yet he did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God, being fully persuaded that God had power to do what He had promised. ~ Romans 4 [selected 18-21]

CHILDLIKE FAITH

**********A CHILD'S CHAIR of FAITH ***********
Exodus 33 (selected)
15 Then Moses said to Him, "If Your Presence does not go with us, do not send us up from here. 16 How will anyone know that you are pleased with me and with Your people unless YYou go with us? What else will distinguish me and Your people from all the other people on the face of the earth?" 17 And the LORD said to Moses, "I will do the very thing You have asked, because I am pleased with You and I know You by name."
18 Then Moses said,
"Now show me Your glory."
19 And the LORD said, "I will cause all My goodness to pass in front of you, and I will proclaim My name, the LORD, in Your presence. I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion. 20 But," He said, "you cannot see My face, for no one may see Me and live."
21 Then the LORD said, "There is a place near Me where you may stand on a rock. 22 When my glory passes by, I will put you in a cleft in the rock and cover you with My hand until I have passed by. 23 Then I will remove My hand and you will see My back; but My face must not be seen." [Scripture emphasis added]


This is my very favorite Old Testement Passage of Scripture - and God knows that. I can't wait to see what else He is going to do! He's already done one huge miracle today in the new Prayer Room! I can barely breathe - bowing down in worship and praise to Him. You can read about it on the PRAYER WALK... in SHEPHERD'S WALK at Sweetbriar - in The PRAYER ROOM... when I can catch my breath from praising my Lord Jesus today.


Our God is the SAME God that Moses encountered!
Oh - How AWESOME IS HE!!!!!!!!!!!

Looking UPward and Choosing JOY,

I just love that portion of scripture and one of my favorite verses is "show me Your Glory!"

How I just want to see His glory! That is my prayer and my desire.

I am praising God for what He is doing in your life and for what He wil continue to do for you!

In Him,
Beth
