“Abraham believed God.”
Not, “Abraham believed the text.”
Not, “Abraham believed a set of precepts.”
Not, “Abraham believed a list of propositions.”
But “Abraham believed God.”
I tend to be dangerously “nominal” in my faith,
God, I want a faith like Abraham, your friend,
whose faith rested on your personality and character.
I want a sense of you drawing me into the reality of your presence.

Help us to be yours, not our own;
Help to trust you, not ourselves or our own strength;
Help us to think Your thoughts after You, not our own thoughts;
Help us to accomplish Your will, not our own will.
