In times of need, in times of shortage of money, some people risk using the ‘credit’ option –
they decide to get some commodities on credit and… pay later.
Different forms of advertising invite them to do precisely that.
Some shopkeepers will accept to extend credit to customers, others will not.
It is interesting to note that God himself is ready to go along with the ‘credit option’ in our favor!
He did it for Abram, as the 1st reading of this Sunday tells us:
“Abram believed the Lord, and he credited it to him as righteousness” (Genesis 15:5-12,17-18).
God gives credit… on one condition, could we say, and that is: that we believe in him.
It is as simple as that.
God is ready to give us – abundantly – his blessings of all kinds provided we trust him.
He will count it as credit for us that we rely on him with a faith that does not waver.
A faith that does not doubt either his power, or his readiness to come to our help.
Confident belief, trustful reliance on God, this can obtain so much!
Just see for yourself…
