Genesis 27:1–32, Rebekah and Jacob’s scheming. How often do we take matters into our own hands to “help” YHVH out in fulfilling his promises for our life. Where is the faith in that? (Read Psalm 37:3–7, 23–24, 34.) Analyze the actions of your life on the basis of these words. Consider the following concepts of faith:
- Dynamic or Active Faith: A person with this kind of faith knows when to move ahead and when to wait.
- Passive or Inactive Faith: A person with this kind of faith never moves, but always sits idly by waiting for things just to happen on their own.
- Presumptuous or Impetuous Faith: A person with this kind of faith always moves and never waits.
Which kind of faith did the faith heros of Scripture evidence? What kind of faith do you have?
