It would be great if we always knew the best decision to make. Many times the choices aren’t so clear. Sometimes the best we have is God’s general direction. In Genesis 24 Abraham is learning to lean into God’s leading in the decisions he faces that affect the covenant generation.
Abraham has waited several decades from the promise of God to come true. When it does it seems like it will all be stripped away in a radical call of obedience. Does Abraham just love God’s promises or does he love God?
When you entered into covenant with God through Jesus, you may not have changed your name, but you got a new identity. God wants people who will live for him and in relationship with him even when “rituals” are broken.
In light of all the broken promises we experience, it is a wonder we trust anyone at all. So how do we trust a God that makes improbable promises to us? How are we suppose to respond to him? Follow along in the story of how Abram puts his trust in God and his promises.
