The Strategies Pursued in our Walk of Faith by Dr. Glenn Jago

Genesis 16:1-16

As believers, we are continually reminded throughout the Scriptures, how we are to live by faith and not by sight. This certainly makes sense when the evidence of God’s mighty hand is supplying our immediate needs. But, what happens when we exercise faith in the Lord and nothing happens in our time-frame and life spins out of control? Do we experience frustration, disappointment, anger, bitterness, complaining, or isolation, to name a few? Unfortunately, within the emotion of the moment, our reactions often speak louder than our words of trusting in the Lord. Where will we turn for answers? How do you react in these stressful moments?

God promised children and land to Abraham, yet, ten years later, he still has nothing to show for his walking by faith. Now he finds himself in the middle of an emotional family crisis; how does he handle this?
God’s perspective:

I. The God who is silent – Genesis 16:1-6

II. The God who sees – Genesis 16:7-14

III. The God to whom we submit – Genesis 6:15-16
