The Power of His Word

God encourages Abraham in Genesis 15 through the power of His Word. The Word came to Abraham in a vision and said, “Do not be afraid, Abraham. I am your shield, your very great reward.” Abraham was where God wanted him to be and with the people He wanted him to be with but there is concern because he is childless. There is no one to pass on his possessions but then he gets the news that he would have children.

As Abraham sleeps, God gives him a dream about how his descendants would be enslaved and mistreated for four hundred years in a foreign land. Then they would be freed and return with great possessions (v. 14). Then He goes on to promise Abraham many descendants along with land from the Wadi of Egypt to the Euphrates River (v. 19).

Like the promise given to Abraham, God gives us a promise this day. Let us hold on to His promises for our life. Lord, You have power and go before us to make a way for our future. We can be encouraged because You are there for us. We can be encouraged from many examples in Your Word of those who accomplished Your perfect will in their life with the help of Your power. We can be encouraged today for You Lord will protect each of us individually like a cherished child. Amen!
