The Bible is full of wonderful and glorious promises from God. He offers so much to those that look to Him. He is a loving God and desires to give us good gifts. When we follow Him by faith, He will bless us abundantly.

Abraham is known as the “father of faith.” He is often used as the example of a man launching out in life, trusting God along the way. Abraham was not a perfect man, and the Bible doesn’t portray him as such. But He is a man who met God with faith, and God used Him significantly! God revealed Himself to one man who heard His promise and believed it! The world literally has never been the same since Abram.

Genesis 12:1–6 (NLT) “The Lord had said to Abram, “Leave your native country, your relatives, and your father’s family, and go to the land that I will show you. I will make you into a great nation. I will bless you and make you famous, and you will be a blessing to others. I will bless those who bless you and curse those who treat you with contempt. All the families on earth will be blessed through you.” So Abram departed as the Lord had instructed, and Lot went with him. Abram was seventy-five years old when he left Haran. He took his wife, Sarai, his nephew Lot, and all his wealth—his livestock and all the people he had taken into his household at Haran—and headed for the land of Canaan. When they arrived in Canaan, Abram traveled through the land as far as Shechem. There he set up camp beside the oak of Moreh. At that time, the area was inhabited by Canaanites.”

It’s vital that you understand the faith-filled life of Abraham and Sarah. It’s not merely the true story of a man but all men and women. Abraham’s story is ours because we see a pattern of how God speaks and how women and women respond.

The Bible is remarkable because it’s not written like a textbook in cold, dry language and terminology. No, God writes out the true stories of men and women with weaknesses, failures, and all of the typical issues of life. He includes the whole truth and doesn’t sidestep any failure or sin. God wants to use you! You’re included, and so am I.

Hebrews 11:13–16 (NLT) “All these people died still believing what God had promised them. They did not receive what was promised, but they saw it all from a distance and welcomed it. They agreed that they were foreigners and nomads here on earth. Obviously people who say such things are looking forward to a country they can call their own. If they had longed for the country they came from, they could have gone back. But they were looking for a better place, a heavenly homeland. That is why God is not ashamed to be called their God, for he has prepared a city for them.”

God has prepared a heavenly city for those that follow Him by faith. He is not ashamed to be called our God and desires to bless us abundantly. When we put our trust in Him, He will never leave us or forsake us. What a loving and gracious God we serve!

God’s promises are so good that it’s hard to imagine living life without Him. Fortunately, we don’t have to! When we put our trust in Jesus Christ, He comes into our lives and changes everything. If you have never experienced this kind of life-changing love, I encourage you to seek it out today. It’s worth it! Trust me.

The best part of following God is that He always keeps His promises. No matter what we go through in life, we can always count on Him to be there for us. He is a loving and gracious God who desires to bless us abundantly. When we put our trust in Him, He will never leave us or forsake us. What a wonderful God we serve!
