FAITH RESTS ALL IN THE HANDS OF A FAITHFUL GOD

Faith rests all in the hands of a faithful God. We
read in Hebrews 11:8-10 that "by FAITH, Abraham, when
he was called to go out into a place, which he should
afterwards receive for an inheritance, OBEYED. And he
went out not knowing whither he went. By faith he
sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange
country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob,
heirs with him of the same promise. For he looked for
a city, which hath foundations whose builder and
maker, is God." What a wonderful statement about
Abraham! You know, critics used to laugh at the Bible
story of Abraham leaving Ur of the Chaldees. They
tried to make a mythological character out of him and
say that the Bible was untrue. But archaeologists have
dug into Ur of the Chaldees now, and they know that Ur
was indeed the home of Abraham. They know just where
Abraham lived and many of the details of his life back
in the days before he was called of God, when he was
still a heathen idolater. So the Bible record is true.
The Bible is always true and it takes men years to
catch up with God's Book.
One of the sweetest things I know is that God calls
men! Many people are religious, but they have never
known what it means for God to speak to their
innermost soul. What a wonderful experience it is.
I shall never forget the testimony of a young woman in
Savannah, Georgia some years ago. At the close of a
service one night she stood before the microphone and
said, "Last night, for the first time in my life, I
reached out and touched God." God was real to her. She
heard the Call. She had been hearing about Him, going
to church, going to Sunday School, hearing others
speak of Him, but never in her own soul had she known
Him. But now she knew she had contacted the Lord. It
was the most precious moment in her life.
