“…Do not be afraid, Abram. I am your shield, your very great reward.”
Genesis 15: 1
Abram was not perfect and yet he was a follower of God. He loved God and had great faith.
These verses are just before God promises him that his descendants will be as numerous as the stars!
Later his name is changed to Abraham, and he walks even more closely with the God of the universe. And further on, in the New Testament, we see that Abraham was so blessed, because of his faith.
In many ways Abraham is an example to us all, a father to us, because of his great love for Adonai (the Lord).
Help us to love you Lord God, to have a great faith in You, for the big things, and for the little things! Amen.
