The three largest faith traditions—Judaism, Islam, and Christianity—claim the same starting point: a man named Abraham. All three agree that sin made a mess of the world and God started his clean up operation with Abraham. God made a series of promises and Abraham’s response to those promises didn’t just have implications for his personal starting point or the starting points of Judaism, Islam, and Christianity. It had implications for your starting point as well.
We’ve all had moments in our lives when we’ve asked ourselves the question: “What if?” What if I get this promotion? What if this relationship doesn’t work out? What if my kids succeed? What if they don’t?
These “what-if” questions can either fill you with fear or fuel your faith. When you experience challenging circumstances, what if God is in the midst of it all, working in and through your life in ways far greater than you can imagine?
