God has promised that He will raise up a generation of believers who fully live from The Word and risen up as influential, distinguished and respected people in the society.

You are a generation of believer that fulfills the prophecy of the book of Isaiah 60 : 1-3

1. “Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you.

2 . See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the Lord rises upon you and his glory appears over you.

3 Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your dawn.

Observe the process of the life-shaping that Abraham went through because the same thing will happen in your life!

Romans 4:1-5 (The Message) So how do we fit what we know of Abraham, our first father in the faith, into this new way of looking at things? If Abraham, by what he did for God, got God to approve him, he could certainly have taken credit for it. But the story we’re given is a God-story, not an Abraham-story. What we read in Scripture is, “Abraham entered into what God was doing for him, and that was the turning point. He trusted God to set him right instead of trying to be right on his own.” If you’re a hard worker and do a good job, you deserve your pay; we don’t call your wages a gift. But if you see that the job is too big for you, that it’s something only God can do, and you trust him to do it—you could never do it for yourself no matter how hard and long you worked—well, that trusting-him-to-do-it is what gets you set right with God, by God. Sheer gift.

WHAT WE READ IN THE VERSE IS : ABRAHAM ENTERED WHAT GOD HAD PROVIDED FOR HIM, AND THAT WAS THE TURNING POINT. He believes God to justify himself rather than trying to be righteous in his own way. If you’re a hard worker and do a good job, you deserve your pay; we don’t call your

wages a gift. BUT IF YOU SEE THAT THE JOB IS TOO BIG FOR YOU, THAT IT’S SOMETHING ONLY GOD CAN DO, AND YOU TRUST HIM TO DO IT—you could never do it for yourself no matter how hard and long you worked—well, that trusting- him-to-do-it is what gets you set right with God, by God.

TRUSTING THAT HE IS THE ONE WHO IS GOING TO DO IT, THAT IS THE ASPECT THAT WILL MAKE YOU BE JUSTIFIED BEFORE GOD, BY GOD HIMSELF. Sheer gift.

From an Abraham who initially was a nobody, then came the word of God that shaped, positioned and brought Abraham to become the father of many nations! You may also be nobody right now, but pay attention to the coming of God’s voice and His promise to your life, that guarantees great things for your life.
