That’s What Faith Is

14 The Lord said to Abram after Lot had parted from him, “Look around from where you are, to the north and south, to the east and west. 15 All the land that you see I will give to you and your offspring forever. 16 I will make your offspring like the dust of the earth, so that if anyone could count the dust, then your offspring could be counted. 17 Go, walk through the length and breadth of the land, for I am giving it to you.”

18 So Abram went to live near the great trees of Mamre at Hebron, where he pitched his tents. There he built an altar to the Lord. Genesis 13:14-18

Once again we find Abram setting up an altar to worship. The Lord had reiterated a fabulous promise, and Abram responded accordingly. Even though Abram didn’t have a clue how the Lord would fulfill that promise, he built the altar by faith, knowing that God would make good on His promises. It’s the very definition of faith.

Rarely are we asked to take large steps of faith. No, normally we must take multiple small steps that lead up to the big step.

What is God asking you to do in faith today? Are you resisting? Is it more than you can handle?
