Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
Yesterday was a big day for us, but especially for baby Obi. He was circumcised in the presence of our friends and family (many of them not believers) at our congregation in Tel Aviv. We had the chance to share about the false report we got concerning Obi's health and how the doctors told us to abort him early on. I tied in the faith that Abraham must have had, especially concerning circumcision. There may not have been a dry eye in the house. Thank you, God!
Perhaps you're being tested in ways that you don't understand. While it's a good possibility that we may not understand until we see the Lord, these tests are for our good! They are for the exercising of our faith -- and ultimately for our growth and blessing in the Lord!
Let's not despise the testing of our faith. The Lord is using it to prepare us for greater things ahead! And guess why?! 'Cause there's soooooooooo much work to be done!
