The Character Built Up in Abraham

Today, I  had a revelation of Abraham.  God taught me that Abraham was a man of faith and God was building up his character inside.  God told me, "Do you know what that test was revealing when Abraham offered Isaac the sacrifice of his heart?"  It revealed the gift that God had given to Abraham: trust, obedience, and faith developed that can now be passed on from generation to generation: this is a generation and a people of faith of even the impossible.  This is incredibly important and crucial.  God developed in Abraham and that's what the years in "waiting" was all about.

When God called Abraham at first his faith was not that strong.  He lied about Sarai being his sister instead of his wife.  Later he let himself go to Hagar to sleep with her and have Ishmael.  God showed me, "do you think that Abraham would have agreed to do this if he was as strong in faith and obedience as he was when he offered his one and only son of faith that he loved?"  No.  Therefore, this test was revealed to all of us for all time what God is developing in us and that is what the relationship is all about.  I want to grow more in my relationship with God.   The true gift that God is trying to give me is trust and purity in obedience to God and God alone.  Enough faith to offer up our entire gift to God because God is the most important One.  There is so much to this that it feels like it is bursting inside of me.  This is very special.  The gift is the character God made in Abraham (to be passed on by the way).  The gift was the behavior of one who has a close relationship with  Jesus by faith.  This is special.  The most special.  So special that God showed me this as I laid in bed and I pray that God reveals all this to me.  God cares more about the person we become to be fit and ready to fellowship with him much more than the things that we get or even our legacy.  God is building up something very very great and incredibly special inside of us today. Lord, Jesus, have your own way.

If you'd like to accept Jesus into your life today, pray this simple prayer of God's love and grace today: Lord Jesus, I thank you for dying for all my sin; now Lord I invite you into my heart. Come and be my everything today and forever. Forgive my sin as I make You and you alone Lord in my life. Amen. Now read the book of God's love in the Bible: The book of John chapters 1-21. God promises He will guide your life. Pray and ask God to bring the right people into your life. God will guide you to the right church full of people who love His words in the Bible. Our God is so faithful. God bless you today.
