God established a covenant with Abraham and his descendants. Abraham’s children would be the means by which the entire world would be restored and invited to share in God’s redemption blessing. Though Abraham is known for his moments of great faith, he also had moments of doubt in God’s promises, expressed in both his words and his actions in trying to create a family line through his own means. 

Reflect on how Abraham interacts with God and his relationship with Him. What stands out to you about his interactions with God?

One thought on "Abraham, Son of Terah"

  1. Mike G says:

    God operates on a much different time-line than we understand. Eventhough God and Abraham had a phenomenal close relationship, one I think most Christians envy, the time in-between these close encounters was long. I suffer staying on my purpose by not continually staying in tune with the spirit. Thank Jesus for the blessing of the Holy Spirit, May we strive daily to follow His guidance!
