Trusting In God

“That’s what the Scripture means when it says: “I have made you the father of many nations.” He [Abraham] is our example and father, for in God’s presence he believed that God can raise the dead and call into being things that don’t even exist yet.” Romans 4:17 TPT

Abraham left his home
To follow God’s calling
Left friends and family
To trust in God’s promises
Though he was childless
For very many years

He trusted in God
And his faith was rewarded
In God’s Presence
Abraham’s faith was grounded

God had promised Abraham
He would father many nations
Though for many many years
His wife remained barren
But when Abraham was 100
His first heir and son was born

He trusted in God
And his faith was rewarded
In God’s Presence
Abraham’s faith was grounded

When Isaac Abraham’s son
His one and only heir
Was still a young man
The pride and joy of his father
God asked Abraham
To sacrifice his son

But He trusted in God
And his faith was rewarded
In God’s Presence
Abraham’s faith was grounded

Abraham knew by then
God could be trusted
To call into being 
That which eyes had not seen
And raise from the dead
Those untimely in the grave

So he trusted in God
And his faith was rewarded
In God’s Presence
Abraham’s faith was grounded

In Abraham’s willingness to sacrifice
His beloved, only son
We see a picture of the terrible price
God would pay one day for us
Abraham’s faith God would provide
The lamb in Jesus would be realised

Because he trusted in God
And his faith was rewarded
In God’s Presence
Abraham’s faith was grounded

With all that he was and had
Even his one precious son
Abraham trusted in God
To be faithful to His word
To be kind and forgiving
Loving and providing

Because he trusted in God
And his faith was rewarded
In God’s Presence
Abraham’s faith was grounded

Now through Jesus sacrifice
We have God’s Presence in us
For God was faithful to His Word
From death to life, raising us
Re-creating us as He promised
One with Him we are united

As we trust in God
Our faith is rewarded
In God’s Presence in us
Our faith is grounded
