I think more than anything for me when it comes to trusting God’s promises, it is understanding the filter by which I see them. I believe they are very real and tangible promises, but in the other sense, many of the promises given to Abraham were about a future generation. I think in Hebrews it says that many of the “heroes of faith” were still waiting for the fulfillment of promises when they died. Back in that day, they seemed to have a better future perspective, not just as it related to eternity, but also as it related to their family line. Am I willing to live my life surrendered to the kingdom, in the belief that my future descendants will be the recipients of a fulfilled promise?
