Word From The Father
If you visit your doctor, you’ll willingly pour your heart to him because you know he can help you. He can only know whatever you tell him and if you fail to give him all the necessary information he needs, he cannot help you. But because you believe he can help you, you’ll hold back nothing from him no matter how private it may be to you. Through all the information you give him, he’ll run a test on you and if your problem is beyond what he can handle, he’ll refer you to a specialist. I Am the Almighty God. I Am the Great Deliverer. I Am the Owner of every life. He who believes in Me and does My will shall receive the crown of life.
When I called Abraham, it wasn’t easy for him. There wasn’t any example he could follow because such thing hasn’t happened before. Everybody around him thought he was insane. Nobody understood him, not even Sarah his wife. He was more or less a lunatic. If a man is alive and no single person could understand him, he’s categorised a lunatic. They will tell him he’s hallucinating. This was what Abraham passed through. He himself thought it was a joke, but when I set fire in his heart and wasn’t comfortable anymore, he decided to leave. That day, all hell broke loose! His family persuaded him not to leave, but he had no choice and he must leave. He believed in Me despite everything he passed through. As I was pulling him on one side, Satan was pulling him on the other side. He passed through horror. Because he believed in Me, I overlooked every mistake he made along the journey. I Am the Almighty God.
All of you have series of examples to follow, yet, you lack wisdom. You don’t believe in Me because of what you want. Was it easy for a man to pack all his belongings and leave to an unknown land? He didn’t leave alone, he left with all his slaves. Remember that the slaves had children too. He left with everything he had. Along the way, Satan began to kill them one after the other. He killed many of the slaves and his cattle. Above all, he caused famine in the land just because of him. This was the reason he wandered to Egypt. Today, all of you identify yourself as children of Abraham. If you were to be on this Earth in his time, you wouldn’t offer him a cup of water to drink. If I Am dealing with you, you’re the only one that knows I’m dealing with you. Whatever I tell you, if you tell anybody, nobody will believe you. Before anybody could know that it’s the finger of God, many years have passed. In fact, you yourself might have died. This is how I deal with My children. And whatever I do, I always think of the long-term effect on My children. Today, the foundation of holiness I laid through Abraham was sealed with My Son. All of you are enjoying it today; this is why you can call yourself a Christian.
Do you believe in Me like Abraham? Do you put your trust in Me that I will neither leave you nor forsake you? You have many examples to follow! You have many books you can read, but Abraham had none. He was the first and no other. Nobody has embarked on such journey before. Because you have all this cloud of witnesses around you, this is why I will not forgive you if you don’t make it. One is to believe, another is to hold on to what you believe. If you believe in My Word and you hold on to it, My peace will surround you and your generation. And above all, I will crown you when you come to Heaven.
The Bible says in the Book of Genesis 15:6 and Romans 4:3 that, “Abraham believed in the Lord, and He accounted it to him for righteousness.” Though nobody is righteous, but because he believed the Father who spoke to him and he left his country and kindred willingly, in obedience, righteousness was added to his account. Everything he passed through along the way, nothing happened on behalf of the Father. Every affliction he passed through, every pain and sorrow he passed through, the Father knew it all.
Many of you can sing today that the blessing of Abraham is yours, but none of you can pray to pass through one percent of what he passed through. This is why the Father always give greater grace to such kind of people. And if you want to compare yourself with such people because they made some mistake and think you too can make such mistake and go free, you’ll end up biting your fingers. As human being, you’re your own entity and you can never compare yourself with anybody. The best you can do is to go through all their experiences in life and draw wisdom in how they lived their lives. If you say you want to live your life as they lived, you’ll be disappointed bitterly because the Father is not with you. Every journey Abraham embarked on, the Father was the One that channelled his feet to embark on such journey. And if you think you can do the same thing, I pray you won’t regret it.
As a believer in Christ, the kind of faith Abraham had in the Father has no comparison. When Satan lured him to take his own decision against the Father’s will, when the Father rebuked him for what he had done, he still believed in the Father. After the son of promise has come and the Father laid before him the greatest test He could lay before any man, he didn’t withdraw back his son, rather, he slaughtered him before the Father came to his rescue. Nobody knew if he truly killed Isaac before the Father revived him or not. The way of the Father is not the way of a man and you can only know whatever He tells you. This is why no one should compare himself with such people.
My dear beloved, whatever the Father asked you to do in your own little way, do it willingly without grumbling. Do it with all your heart! Believe in your heart that the Father will never lead you astray. You must understand that the Father owns you and everything you may have. Value not your own life above the will of the Father. Walk in obedience at all time. Let the fire of His Word burn constantly in your heart so that the cloud of doubt will by no means enter there. I pray for you today that Jehovah God who has called you out of darkness through His Precious Son will by no means leave you half way but will lead you to glory as He led the people of old in Jesus name. Amen!
My Task For Today
1) I will ask for mercy if I’ve doubted the Father in any way.

3) I will not allow discouragement to overcloud my heart and lead me in straying away from the will of the Father.
My Prayers For Today
1) Almighty Father, Your Word says whosoever believes and trust in You will never be put to shame. I pray that You give me the grace to believe and put my trust in You in all things.
2) My Lord Jesus, You trod this Earth before me and know the secret of it. May I walk before You in newness of heart each day I live.
3) Almighty God, Abraham conquered his adversaries only by Your grace. I pray that You give me greater grace to conquer all my adversaries.
4) Holy Spirit, I ask You to take absolute control of my heart and help me to remain in You as You’re in me in Jesus name. Amen!
May the Lord give you the grace to walk with Him in Jesus name.
