Be Still . . .
Devotionals for Daily Living
After this, the word of the LORD came to Abram in a vision:
“Do not be afraid, Abram.
I am your shield,
your very great reward.”
(Genesis 15:1 (NIV))
If God can fulfill a promise made to an old man who had no sons and make his descendants as numerous as the stars, then what can He do for you? Abram was an old man. His wife was also old. Yet, God fulfilled the promise to Abram that his descendants would be as the stars.
Do you face a situation that looks like it cannot be overcome. Turn it over to God. He is the one who is in control. Let Him be your reward.
Are you being faithful in seeking that reward? Are you earnestly seeking God to work in your life? Abram was counted faithful for his devotion to God.
When you look up at the stars at night, what do you see? Abram saw a promise from God. God kept that promise just as He keeps all promises.
