How Long Will It Be Ere They Believe me? Num14:11
Be not confused by the old language.
How long will it be before you believe me?
Why would you because of mercies unseen doubt My parentage?
How can you easily forget My countless mercies, like the ten spies?
How can you easily forget that My mercies are new every morning and great is My faithfulness?
Sarah was in this place and got Abraham to compromise.Gen16
Abraham was in this place and was depressed under the impression that Eliezer would be his heir. Unbelief also caused him to lie protect himself. Gen12 & 15
But I was merciful and reassured him, reaffirmed my covenant and even changed his name to line up with My will for him.Gen17
I called the thing which be not as though it was. And that is the nature of faith. The just shall live by faith. I used the heavens to paint a picture of the greatness in store for him and he believed. Gen15
He turned the corner even after the mistake of fathering Ishmael. In the fullness time, at the set time, I gave him laughter ( Isaac). Gen21
That son at his old age meant everything to him-apple of his eyes. So I put him to the test: “Take now your son, your beloved son to a place I will show you and sacrifice him…” Gen22
He obeyed and left immediately. He passed his test with flying colours. Why? He had learned that great is My faithfulness. I am not One Who lies. Heaven and earth would pass away but not one tittle of My word will fall to the ground without fulfilment. I do not bring to the time of birth and shut the womb.
