The 8th Day
I will make you into a great nation and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing. — Genesis 12:2 (NIV)
In Genesis chapter 12: The Lord had said to Abram, “leave your country, your people and your father’s household and go to the land I will show you. I will make you into a great nation, and I will bless you. I will make your name great and you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse, and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.”
‘Abraham shows great faith when he obeys this call. Faith is about believing that something is so, even though you cannot yet see it … God is a Father who loves to BLESS and he has chosen Israel to be the nation that brings his blessing to the world.’ — Mark Stibbe
Abraham is a father of faith. When I read about this chapter and watched the video above, I was in tears. Abraham’s heart was trembling as God told him to sacrifice his own son, however he obeyed with faith:”Father, Please help me to see as you see … I don’t understand your purpose Lord, yet you are God – THE GIVER OF LIFE. You have spoken, so I will do this for you! ” Through his faith and obedient, it brings God’s mighty blessings: I will make you the father of all nations!
Sometimes, you can not see good things happening, it’s because you hesitate to take the first step as you can’t see the reason in doing it. However, when you don’t understand, yet willing to trust and step out in faith, God’s blessings will be poured into your life unstoppably!
Take the first step to believe that he is the father who loves you so dearly?
