chronological day 4 :)

Please read Genesis 11:1-26, 1 Chronicles 1:24-27, Genesis 11:27-31, Genesis 12, Genesis 13, Genesis 14, and come right back! 🙂 Here’s what I am thinking about today:

number4

Lots of genealogies today – if you find them a little tiring, know that I am with you!  But before we overlook these names, try looking at each one, see if you recognize anyone. Many of these names will come back again.  An important figure is introduced today: Abraham.

Though Abraham will have to go through many trials, he has this initial promise form the Lord to maintain him: “I’ll make you a great nation and bless you.  I’ll make you famous, you’ll be a blessing” (Genesis 12:2 MSG). it will be years before Abram  begins to see this promise come to pass.

The entire Bible is a lifeline to us, God’s character and blessings, full of promises.  It’s the logos word (the written word) straight from His heart to ours.  Whether God gives you a logos (written word) or a rhema (spoken word) to hold on to, be encouraged: He is always faithful to His promises.  Even if, like Abraham, you have to wait. 🙂

 

 

 

One thought on “chronological day 4 :)

  1. Ralph Madrigal says:

    Going through the generations it makes you think that you or someone down the generations will be called out by the Lord to make such a move that will leave a stamp on this world. Abram indeed has his trials that developed late in his age, you wonder why at this time? Could it be the Lord waited until Abram aged and gained wisdom to make the right choices? Abram now Abraham was promised treasures from the Lord that a normal man would have abandoned if he had to wait so long to receive them. What treasures do we wait for and do we have the patience for them to come?
