Genesis 15:2 ERV "But Abram said, “Lord GOD, there is nothing you can give me that will make me happy, because I have no son. My slave Eliezer from Damascus will get everything I own after I die.”
BELIEVING THE LORD
Abraham wanted a son, and as long as he didn't have a son he was unhappy. The same way some of you are unhappy right now; you want children, you want a husband, you want a job, you want prosperity!
Abraham lost hope of having a son at some point and began grooming a slave to inherit his estate. Just then, God appeared and revealed to him that He was going to give him children, as many as the stars in the sky! What a God! The man was only asking for a child, but God was talking about children as many as the stars!
Despite the delay, the difficulties, the failed attempts, and the unlikelihood of its occurrence, Abraham managed to believe the Lord. And he got a son! Hallelujah! I remember what Jesus said to Martha, “Didn’t I tell you that if you believed, you would see the glory of God?” I encourage you to believe the Lord today. Nothing is impossible. It shall come to pass!
