Genesis 15:6

Scripture is God-breathed and true. When we memorize it, we carry the gospel with us wherever we go.

This week we will memorize a verse about Abram’s trust in the Lord—a reminder that our salvation comes by faith in God and His Son, Jesus Christ.

Abram believed the LORD, and he credited it to him as righteousness.
—Genesis 15:6

    I love that God sees us as righteous. It’s nice to know that I don’t have to be perfect to earn God’s favor or have him look on me in a positive light. Help me to live in this truth Lord.

  2. Mari V says:

    I believe! I am so grateful for SRT and this community of sisters. I love how we can come here and lay down our burdens, prayer requests, our victories and be real. I know when I ask for prayer, every one here prays. Please know I pray for you as well.

  3. Lisa Z says:

    I love the verse Lord, I believe, help my unbelief! We all waver, Ashley. Lord, help our unbelief! This a great faith hrowing forum.

  4. Allison Sherwood says:

    I love it!

  5. Cathy Simpkins says:

    The New Testament equivalent of this verse: Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved. That’s all there is to it. So beautifully simple. Thank you, Lord.

  6. Ashley White says:

    I’m trying to have more faith in Christ but I always feel like I’m wavering

    1. AnneLyn P says:

      Praying for you, Ashley, that you will know Jesus and rest in him. I find spending time in his word strengthens my faith, especially reading through the psalms where David expresses his struggles. He consistently comes back to praising God! It encourages me. Praying the same for you.

    2. Amber Dickson says:

      Ashley, you’re here! And that’s what matters. God asks us gently to draw near to him and he will draw near to us. Life is full of waves and that’s ok. I don’t feel him all the time but I remember the times I did and I have to choose everyday to love him.
      Lord Jesus, thank you for Ashley and her heart fir you. She’s trying to have more faith but she feels like she’s always wavering. Please draw near to her and show her your grace and kindness. Help her to see that you’re the ROCK so she doesn’t have to be. All she needs is to believe and you’ll hold on for her. Deepen your relationship with and keep her in your loving hands Jesus. We praise you and thank you for who you are and we choose you. In your holy name, amen❤️

      Faith isn’t about feelings. It’s most often blindly groping forward because you trust in what’s ahead. Keep loving God and doing your best! I’ll pray for you today.

    4. Ruth Heggenes says:

      Unfortunately i think it’s impossible to try to have more faith. It’s something God brings about in us through life circumstances. Don’t beat yourself up over it. Keep looking at who he is and what his Word tells you is truth. Know it, tell it to yourself and hold on to him no matter what. He is faithful!
      When I walked through my husbands addictions in my early 20’s my faith was sorely tried. I floundered and groped through. God brought us out, proved his faithfulness. He let us experience loss, but gave us so much more than we had! Praise God he sees and knows what we need to draw us close to him and make us see our need for him!

      It’s okay! We are all a work in progress! Plus you are on this study of Genesis- which is the most faith based book :) God is answering your prayers Ashley! And leaving you with this scripture:
      “So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.”
      ‭‭Romans‬ ‭10:17‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

      It’s possible to grow your faith. Continue to be immerse and hearing the words of God. God has got you! Praying for you too!

    6. Jo L says:

      Another scripture to encourage you:
      “So the Lord said, “If you have faith as a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be pulled up by the roots and be planted in the sea,’ and it would obey you.”
      ‭‭Luke‬ ‭17:6‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

      Mustard seed is very very very small (can Google to see). God doesn’t require you to have great faith to do miracles. He can also work w small small faith :)

  7. Pamela Moretz says:

    Yes … our righteousness is like filthy rags, but a genuine relationship with Him and His Word in us washes those rags clean enough to use as our personal story to show others how dirty it was that The Lord washed us from. Like the cloth He put around His waist after washing the disciples dirty feet…He bore our sin and became sin though He was sinless!

  8. Churchmouse says:

    The faith of Abraham, not any of his works, determined his right standing before the Lord. Faith, not works. Relationship, not ritual. Lord, increase my faith and deepen our relationship. More of you, less of me.
    Amen.

    1. K D says:

      Thank you for this. May this be the cry of my heart today as well.

    2. Nancy Singleton says:

      Amen & amen.

    3. Katie Fleming says:

      Relationship not ritual! I love that! It’s not about just going through the motions…

  9. Lisa Holland says:

    Thank you, my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, for believing me worthy of salvation, for your sacrifice for my sake.
