Have a prayer, promise or petition with God that you think isn’t heard? In fact, it feels dead?
Abraham did. “Your reward will be great.” God had said (Genesis 15:1). But there was nothing to show that would be true; in fact, quite the opposite. Abraham was getting older and older; Sarah too!
God gave Abraham instructions to sacrifice; to worship him in the middle of this unanswered, unchangeable situation.
Right in the middle of the praying and the worshiping, who shows up?
Vultures. Can you picture those hump shouldered, black as night birds swooping down to grab the animals right off the altar?
“but Abram chased them away.” Genesis 17:11
Abram didn’t freak or flee. He chased them away.
Friend, are you, like Abram, praying and worshiping God and right in the middle of your impossible you feel like you’re being attack?
Don’t freak and don’t flee. Chase away your enemy. Keep right on singing out those praises. Don’t quit speaking out thanksgiving. Because like Abram, if you continue to believe God, you’ll see His name glorified in your situation. That’s His purpose – that others will one day look at your impossible and say, “It had to be God”.
That’s what I’m praying, believing and thanking God in advance for in mine; I hope you’ll do it in your’s!
