“Get up. Leave your country, your kindred, and your father’s house,” God commanded Abraham.
An aging man, walking alone beneath the stars–God speaks to him again and says, “Look now toward heaven, and tell the stars, if you are able to number them. I will make you a great nation, a blessing, the father of many.” Over the years, additional revelations from God and more powerful promises.
A great story–but much more than a story. More than a historical record of the birth of the nation of Israel. More than the story of one man. It is the story of a divine covenant–the supernatural promises of God–intended to pass from generation to generation, down through the centuries.
What is the true message conveyed through the story of Abraham and the promises God gave him? What is the significance? How do these promises impact believers today?
Do they affect your destiny, and if so how?
How is your life intricately entwined with the story of this aging patriarch?
