Promises of God by Bufe Karraker on 8/11/91

August 12th, 2017

God wants us to Commit, Trust, and Watch Him Work.  God gives us generic promises but we need to give him the authority to work out the promises.  Abraham had a specific promise from God about a son and many descendants.  It didn't happen immediately.  The promise was eventually fulfilled years later.   Abraham relied on the Word of God.  Abraham was a risk taker.  Some of us are not soul-winners because we aren't risk takers.  Abraham didn't doubt God.  He drew strength from his faith.  Bufe shares a story about a young man who was fighting a rare kind of cancer and suffering greatly.  Even in those dark hours of our life, we need to trust God and we will find joy.  Trust God THROUGH the difficult times.
