SELAH Daily Devotions!
“And not being weak in faith, he did not consider his own body, already dead…and the deadness of Sarah’s womb…” (Romans 4:19)
According to the rules regulating our Judicial System, the Presiding Judge is authorized to determine whether evidence that has been presented during the trial is admissible or inadmissible. It then becomes the jury’s charge to determine the guilt or innocence of the defendant. According to the Judge’s instructions, the jury’s decision must be based solely upon deliberation of the factual information introduced during the proceedings that has been conclusively substantiated.
When God told His Friend, Abram, that he was going to be the father of a great nation, He called him outside and instructed him to look up to the heavens and count the stars and declared to Abram “so shall your descendants be.” The text goes on to say, “Abraham believed God and God reckoned Abraham to be righteous.” (Genesis 15:2-6) Evidently, the only admissible evidence that Abraham was allowed to consider was The Word of God and the stars in the heaven. Everything else was merely circumstantial! Seriously!
“He did not waiver at the promise of God through unbelief, but was strengthened in faith, giving glory to God, and being fully persuaded, convinced that what God had promised He was also able to perform.” (Romans 4:-20)
Think about this—JESUS—is your Public Defender—His BLOOD is your only witness—and whatever evidence that the devil is trying to introduce against you—the RIGHTEOUS JUDGE (your Heavenly Father) has already deemed—inadmissible! Didjaheardat? …WOW!!
Beloved, God is calling you out today! Stop fretting over the circumstances, just change the channel! Look up and consider not! In other words—Focus your faith on The Faithfulness of Jesus and The Immutability of His Word!
The sky is the limit of what you can have and be! ALL ELSE…DON’T EVEN THINK ABOUT IT!
Pause, Ponder, Pray & Praiz!
