Trusting Our Unchanging God: A Journey of Faith and Blessings

Published on Feb 9, 2024

The Lord said to Abram after Lot had parted from him, Look around from where you are, to the north and south, to the east and west. All the land that you see I will give to you and your offspring forever.

Genesis 13:14-15

God is unchanging and can be trusted

God called Abram out of Ur. In faithful obedience Abram, with his wife Sarai and nephew Lot, set out to Canaan. The Lord blessed Abram. He grew prosperous and Lot with him. Over time, however, Abram and Lot had so many herds and flocks, that the land could not support both of them. And so Abram decides it is time to part ways. He gives Lot the option to choose, Lot promptly chooses the (seemingly) better land and they part ways.

Interestingly, the Lord is silent until this parting of ways.

But after they have parted, the Lord says to Abram, look around. Look around and see. And all that you see, I will give to you and your offspring, forever! Wow, what a promise.

Abram trusted God to provide for him. Blessings followed his faith. When Abram allowed Lot to choose, he trusted the Lord to lead and provide for him. The Lord blessed his faith and increased the scope of the blessing of all the land you can see. Also, in God’s economy, blessings are long-term, forever, not just for now.

Where is God calling you to display your faith and trust in Him today? Would you choose to take that step of faith, heed His call, step out, believing that you are who He says you are? You can count on the God of Abraham, who remains the same even today.

Prayer

Father help me trust You and take that step to do what You are calling me to do.
