Steadfast

RiverThen God said to him, “This is my covenant with you: I will make you the father of a multitude of nations!” Genesis 17:3-4

God had promised Abram a son, and along with divine protection and descendants as numerous as the stars. In doing this, God changed his name from Abram to Abraham, which means, “father of many.” However, Abrahams current circumstance did not match up with the blessings he would soon inherit.

Then Abraham bowed down to the ground, but he laughed to himself in disbelief. “How could I become a father at the age of 100?” Genesis 17:17

It seemed impossible for Abraham to have a son at his age. Doubts were manifesting and all seemed lost. Nevertheless, we have a God of the impossible who does not work from a human’s point of view.

And Abram believed the Lord, and the Lord counted him as righteous because of his faith. Genesis 15:6

Whatever circumstances you are in, that you might feel is too hard or that there are too many obstacles in the way; know that what God promises, He fulfills. God eventually blessed Abraham with his first son; therefore, hold steadfast and believe in the Lord and you will see it come to pass, just as Abraham did.
