Chapter-a-Day Genesis 15

When [God] took [Abram] outside and said, "Look at the sky. Count the stars. Can you do it? Count your descendants! You're going to have a big family, Abram!" And [Abram] believed! Believed God! God declared him "Set-Right-with-God." Genesis 15:5-6 (TM)

When a young man with a healthy new wife believes God's promisethat he will have a huge family - that's not faith. When an old man with a barren wife, who's been trying to have children for years - believes that same promise - that's faith. Faith is being assured of what we hope for.

What would you do differently in your life if you truly believed that God was for you, and was going to grant you success?

I read a translation of Hebrews 11:1 once that said "Faith is the guarantee of the things we hope for"
