What was promised to Abraham is promised to you.
There is only one thing you have to do.

Isaiah 51: 1-3- “Look to the rock from which you were hewn” Here most people would guess that the rock is Jesus, but soon the passage tells us that it is Abraham- Abraham and Sarah, our father and mother in the faith. Why is this important? Because, he was one and God multiplied him! God will do this for us as we are made of the same stuff- we are cut from the same stone as Abraham.
In Genesis 15- Abraham was asked to count the stars and that his descendants would be more numerous- and Abraham believed. We do not know how long the pause is between promise given and belief.
God puts something in front of us and calls us to believe. If you are interested in righteousness, you need to believe because Abraham’s faith was credited to him as righteousness.
So when we face mountains- you are made for such moments- to stand firm in faith and believe. There is a ‘yes and Amen’ in heaven and we need a ‘yes and Amen’ on the earth.
So often we tend to give a celebrity status to people even in the church. But we are all of Abraham. The faith that Abraham shows is the faith that we are called to have.
Our God’s riches are not just stuff- God was rich even before creation- rich in mercy, in glory, in power and holiness. We are not to go after the things which are made to display His riches but to go after Him.
Multiplication is what we were made for.
