Genesis 15:5, Romans 4:3 (NKJV) Then He brought him outside and said, “Look now toward heaven, and count the stars if you are able to number them.” And He said to him, “So shall your descendants be.” … For what does the Scripture say? “Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.”
God says to Abram that his offspring would be countless. And Abraham believed God. And in believing, Abraham’s faith was accounted to him righteousness. And likewise, the same is done for us when we believe in God. The nation of Israel is Abraham’s seed, and the church is Abraham’s spiritual seed. Just as Paul said to the Galatians, “And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise” (Galatians 3:29 NKJV). As Abraham was saved by faith, we are also saved by faith. We are all heirs in Christ according to the promise. This is a very wonderful truth of God’s Word. If we would simply believe in what God is saying directly to us through His Word, the Bible. Then God would be able to show His power and love through us. We should simply believe as did Abram, “And he believed in the Lord, and He accounted it to him for righteousness” (Genesis 15:6 NKJV). My friend, hear what God is saying directly to you through the Scriptures. Trust in God and your faith will be accounted to you for righteousness, the righteousness of Christ Jesus our Lord and Savior. Take God’s Word at face value, and rest in it. Faith my friend is an attitude of the heart turned completely towards God, believing that God will accomplish what He had promised.
God Bless and have a great day in God’s Word.
