I have been working hard lately on the concept of trust. The whole idea of letting go of your own wishes and letting the Lord’s timing, style and approach take over. It seems to be one of the essentials aspects of being a following of the Christ and the Creator. But it is such a hard discipline to conquer.
Yesterday, I was listening to Andy Stanley’s excellent podcast “Your Move”. This week he was talking about Abraham, and the fundamental aspect of our faith that was highlighted in God’s conversations with Abraham. This item right here:
6 Abram believed the Lord, and he credited it to him as righteousness.
Abram believed. That’s all.
And for that he was reckoned or counted as righteous.
