Faith that Stands the Test of Time
January 19, 2020 Speaker: James Revelino
Passage: Genesis 16:1–16:16
Waiting on the Lord for something is good, but as our wait is prolonged, it becomes more difficult for us. And, depending on what we are waiting on the Lord for, the situation could prove itself a trial for us. In our passage, we see that Abram and Sarai struggled to wait on God for a promise that He had made to them. Our struggles can share the same nature that Sarai’s did.
How can we have such a faith that helps us endure testing periods? The foundation of this faith is the conviction that God cares for His people.
