Daily Bible Blessing-103

 DBB-103

 

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)


Do we consider the Lord Jesus Christ as our "very great reward"?

At a time when Abram very greatly desired a child, God Almighty told him that he himself was Abram's shield and very great reward. Abram lamented,
"O Sovereign Lord, what can you give me since I remain childless and the one who will inherit my estate is Eliezer of Damascus?" "You have given me no children; so a servant in my household will be my heir." 
Sometimes believers wonder why God takes so much time in answering their prayers. He remains quiet about issues that greatly disturb them.
That's exactly how Abram felt, so the question.....what can you give me since I remain childless.

God's reply was comforting and reassuring, though he did not immediately give Abram a time frame as to when he would have a child. 
"This man will not be your heir, but a son coming from your own body will be your heir. Look up at the heavens and count the stars - if indeed you can count them." Then he said to him, "So shall your offspring be." 
That was a big, big promise, but the best thing about Abram was that he believed God he credited it to him as righteousness.
And till the promise of the offspring was fulfilled, God kept reminding him of the promise. Finally, when Abraham was 99 and Sarah 89 years old, God gave him a time frame. He said,
Is anything too hard for the Lord? I will return to you at the appointed time next year and Sarah will have a son." (Genesis 18:14)

And God was faithful regarding fulfilling his promise to Abraham. And mind you, he has not changed. He will fulfil every promise that he has given you and me too. 

The best promise of all being......For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. (1 Thessalonians 4:16, 17)

 

Praise the Lord.
