BIG IDEA: MY GOD IS GREATER THAN OUR CIRCUMSTANCES
As we consider Abraham and his journey of faith we see a man with a “messy” journey. He begins well by trusting God and leaving his homeland, but his faith journey also included some pretty big “bumps”. He lies about his wife (twice) because he didn’t trust God to protect him. He fathers a child with Hagar his handmade because he doesn’t trust God to provide for him. Abraham’s faith, much like our own, was messy and immature, yet this morning we will see Abraham’s faith matured as he discovers firsthand that his God is greater.
