Morning Thought: Abraham journeyed by faith, yet fear was still in his heart. Fear didn’t disqualify him, nor did God stop his loving guidance. However, the Lord wanted to remove his fears. Fear led Abraham to deceive Pharaoh, making the Egyptians angry. Amazingly, God still had Abraham’s back. While God is working in you, excavating the dirt out of your life, he still fights on your behalf. Even though your faith is not perfect, his faithfulness is. You can read the whole story in Genesis 12:10-20. “But the LORD struck Pharaoh and his house with great plagues because of Sarai, Abram’s wife” (Genesis 12:17, NASB).
