I read in Genesis 12 this morning. I was struck by the exceedingly lavish promises the Lord unilaterally gave to Abraham. These were just the first of many promises the Lord gave Abraham.
“And I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you and make your name great, so that you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and him who dishonors you I will curse, and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.” (Gen. 12:2-3)
There are many promises in the Scriptures. Jesus would come to deliver His people and He will come again to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords and just a few.
“For all the promises of God find their Yes in him. That is why it is through him that we utter our Amen to God for his glory.” (2 Cor. 1:20)
As we anticipate the coming year, what promises of God come to your mind? How does He want you to order your life based on the promises He brought to your mind?
