Scripture

Genesis 12

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

What promise did God God make to Abram? How did Abram show that he believed God? How did he reveal when he did not trust God, and what were the consequences?

Application

Do I trust God and believe that He keeps His promises? How am I responding to His call on my life right now?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Dear Father God, Thank You for Your unconditional love and grace. Thank You for making and keeping a covenant with Abram. Help me to follow his example when he heard Your word and immediately obeyed it and followed You to the land You showed him. But help me not to follow in his steps when he took matters into his own hands by going to Egypt. Thank You that, even then, You protected him and Sarai. You are faithful, God! In Jesus’ name, Amen
