Lord I Believe, Help My Unbelief

I have been thinking a lot about faith recently. I know that I have a lot to learn about faith.

My faith needs strengthened. My faith is not strong enough that I would be wiling to sacrifice my only child as an act of obedience to God. I am encouraged to know that Abraham took many steps of faith before he got to that major act of faith. He had been relying on God for years.

I am also intrigued that Abraham honestly thought that God would raise Isaac from the dead. 

"Accounting that God was able to raise him up, even from the dead; from whence also he received him in a figure." Hebrews 11:19

What would make him think that God would raise Isaac because a resurrection had not happened before? Faith. 

I have had this song going through my head over the last week or so. This is my prayer. 

"If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful: he cannot deny himself."
2 Timothy 2:13


  1. In my own life, my faith has been strengthened through difficulty, hardship, and pain. It's been unpleasant but good at the same time. We've experienced the Lord's faithfulness in our lives, and we've come to see that even in the hard times, there are blessings when you're walking with the Lord. And we know that He's always in control. I've thought of that often when we're going through rough times.

    1. And one of those times in your life has been here recently. Thanks for being faithful even through the difficult times! You have had to offer up your son in a different way.

  2. This is very encouraging, Lydia! And it speaks of the truth about us human and about how God remains faithful despite our unfaithfulness sometimes.

    1. I know God is always faithful despite the fact that lots of times I am faithful.

      Thanks for stopping by SuperLux. Hope to see you by here again in the future!
