Doubt

Daily reading: Genesis 15:1-6
Monday September 19, 2016

Focus passage: Then he brought Abram outside and said, “Look up at the sky and count the stars if you think you can count them.”  He continued, “This is how many children you will have.” Genesis 15:5

As we journey with Abram, we see his struggle to fully trust in God.  We see that he doubted God despite God’s promises and we really can’t blame him.  He was 75 when God called him and was well beyond the years one would hope to father children.  No one expects an elderly couple that has no children to become the parents of many nations:  yet as we know, as the story unfolds, this does come to pass.  This story teaches us that God does indeed do amazing things in our life that are far beyond what we would ever expect to happen.


Prayer: God, help me to live more faithfully into your promises.  Amen.
