Pastor Scott Teaches on Abram


Now let me tell the world, I think this tongue is the most unruly
member in our body. An inevitable accompaniment of the baptism of the
Holy Spirit is that that which is capable of being used to God’s glory
comes under God’s control. When man is filled with God’s Spirit, this
most unruly member is going to come under His control and the Spirit
will give the utterance.
But I have to be true to God’s Word and say it is those weak ones who
forever want a sign, those with a persistent heart that will not
accept from God what is clear in His Word, unless it is accompanied
by some new sign.
Abram didn’t say that. He didn’t say, “Give me a sign.” God
said, “Arise, and walk,” put your legs on it, “from the place where
thou art;” now, not tomorrow, not the next day, not when the
circumstances change. 

Get up and start walking right where you are!
God has not changed; the devil has not changed; man has not
changed. God changes not. He still calls, He still leads. He still
demands availability, symbolized by the tent. He still demands sacrifice
and death to what I want, symbolized by the altar; but He is still a God
of promise. The devil has not changed: he will still try to break us
down.  

And man hasn’t changed: we’ll still have our failures as well as our
successes. But wherever you are on your journey now, God’s Word
claims the promise in Christ for you: “Lift up now thine eyes.” From
where? Wherever you are.
