Genesis 15:1-18. God doesn’t call us by putting an announcement in the bulletin: “We need more ushers! If you’re willing to serve, please let us know!” No… God calls us by name, just as he called Abram. All Abram wanted was a child. But God had bigger plans. His plans are always bigger than ours. All we have to do is say “yes” and show up with our faith in HIM. There’s no point in having faith in ourselves, because God draws us beyond the end of our resources. He persistently pushes us past our natural abilities so that we will rely on Him.
