2019 Bible Reading Plan Part 2: Genesis 12-50
You would think that after we humans had messed things up that God would just skip over us and fix things on His own without including us. Yet we read early one how God decided to do His work of saving us from ourselves with us. His desire for relationship with us is amazing.
So we meet this guy Abraham, whose choices, strengths, weaknesses, and faith, which is at times amazing and at times tragic, becomes the human partner in the divine deliverance. Over and over again we will see this pattern – God working with us in spite of us to deliver us from ourselves. And it is not just Abraham but his kids and grandkids, most of whom continue this pattern of amazing faith interspersed into lifestyles and choices that are so messed up you wonder how God can work with any of them. Yet He is faithful even when we are a mess.
So how is God working with you to deliver you from yourself?Think about it as you continue to read the amazing story of the Bible.
