Scripture Struck @ Gen. 15:5-18
Abraham was a pagan. He used to have many gods until one day God Most High, the creator of heaven and earth, talked to him. From here on he started the tradition of a monotheistic faith.
It was not illusion. God was not only a talking Being. He was also powerful and mighty. No one else is like Him! He was a God who disclosed Himself and His ways to Abraham.
In one low moment of Abraham, God consoled him. When he felt discourage that he could never have a child, God promised him an heir. “Fear not, I am your shield. Your descendants will be as numerous as the stars in the sky.”
When things look bad and confusing, think back of Abraham. Think of God’s promises to him. Recall his words: I will be with you. They are not mere promises. In Jesus, we have God’s promises fulfilled. Jesus is the closest we can ever be with God Almighty!
