Believing God is demonstrated by trusting God and living in obedience to His Word. Because of who God is and His immutability, He will always keep His promises so living a life of faith in Him and His promises is a sure foundation. In the face of trials and difficulties the believer then keeps on doing what they have been doing, living step by step, day by day, by faith. A review of the life of faith lived by the Old Testament saints demonstrates God's power to deliver His people and to bring judgment and destruction on those who reject Him. The believer will be encouraged to persevere, thereby honoring God by the testimony of unwavering faithfulness and deliverance.

He was at that time in fear of his life; but when he left Egypt at the head of the Hebrew people, he had no such apprehensions...."---Barnes' New Testament Notes
