So as I almost glanced over this well known verse (to me anyway) in my reading, I felt Him slow me down so I could reflect.
"And [Abram] believed the LORD, and he counted it to him as righteousness." Genesis 15:6How did he stand righteous before the One, True, Living God? He believed Him and His promise.
I imagine myself in a dark and/or confusing time of my life, and I hear or read His promises to me. Do I continue in my darkness and confusion, or do I simply trust and believe Him? Do I simply say I trust His plan for my life, or do I believe He has a plan for my life? Do I say I know He loves me, He forgives me, He calls me, He holds me, He protects me, He saves me, or do I believe it too.
May I stand righteous before God, not because of my doing, but because of my believing.
Empty me of me father ...
