Janet Parshall highlights God's faithfulness in this breakout session, beginning with a look at Father Abraham's life.
God asks Abraham to sacrifice his one and only, precious son Isaac. It doesn't make sense. Abraham knows he's supposed to have descendants that are more numerous than the stars of the heaven. He's over 100. His wife was a medical miracle, and she's past the age where she should be able to conceive.
Abraham knows God brought them this miracle, and now He wants him to make Isaac a burnt offering? But because he knows the faithfulness of God, Abraham says, "Yes, Lord." And God is faithful . . . once again!
Janet encourages, "The only thing Abraham was hanging onto is the only thing you and I hang onto in the midst of really tough circumstances. God is good all the time. God can be trusted all the time. God is faithful all the time.
Listen to this message by Janet to not only hear Abraham's story, but also Moses' mother's story, Horatio Spafford's story, and John Harper's story.
As Janet summarizes, "The human experience in a nutshell is that you are either about to step into the refiner's fire, you're already in the refiner's fire, or you've just stepped out of the refiner's fire. That's it. That's the rhythm of life. One of those three spots."
That's why, if we're going to thrive, we must learn to surrender to God, because we can trust Him, because He is faithful.
