Genesis 22:16-18 and said, “By Myself I have sworn, declares the Lord, because you have done this thing and have not withheld your son, your only son, indeed I will greatly bless you, and I will greatly multiply your seed as the stars of the heavens and as the sand which is on the seashore; and your seed shall possess the gate of their enemies. In your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed, because you have obeyed My voice.”

Obedience is the result of directed faith in God Almighty. In Hebrews 11 we notice that the heroes of faith were commended for what they did and not for what they felt. So often we say I will believe if I feel and that is one level of faith. But as we continue to grow in the Lord we say, I believe because of what I see, or hear. However, we have arrived at New Jerusalem when we say I believe because of who God is and what He has promised. Have you deliberately set out to know God and to get a promise from Him in the Holy Word?

Pray that the Holy Spirit will guide you to a promise in scripture that will sustain you while you wait in prayer.

Pray the Lord Jesus Christ will direct some saint of the Lord to pass your life and perhaps without knowledge about what you are praying, confirm this word from the Lord.

Pray God Almighty, who sits upon His throne, will direct your heart to Him that you may know Him today.
