Bible Reading: Genesis 15: 13- 21
Memory Verse: Genesis 15: 18
In the same day the Lord made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river Euphrates...
Good morning ladies and gentlemen! Happy weekend! Hope you are doing well and excited about the weekend. Today is the last day in which we are looking at Genesis 15. Today we are considering all the verses from verse 13 to verse 21. We would be exploring the topic, “God’s Revelations and Covenant.”
Leading up to these verses, we have seen how Abram asked God for a Son and how God answered Him. We have also looked at how God regarded Abram’s belief in Him as righteousness. Two days ago, we looked at sacrifice and direction from God.
From today’s verses, God is telling us that He reveals His plans to His children. When you look at verse 12, we see that God put Abram to sleep and a darkness overcame him. From these two verses, God is telling us that He reveals His plans to us only in the spiritual. This is why Abram was put to sleep. We need to be in a realm like od or closer to God to be hear from Him directly or undoubtedly.
If Abram were to have been awake, he would not have been able to accept God’s Word as it is. He would not have been able to experience the glory of God. This is why most at times, when God is revealing stuff to us, it is through dreams. At this point, our bodies have been put to rest only our Spirit lives and it will be communicating with God.
When God reveals stuff to us- He is a just God- we can plead with Him for Mercy. This is when God reveals something that the enemy has plan for our downfall. When He reveals to us something that is according to His will; He gives us the result and the process. And by doing that, God makes Covenants with us.
In this case, we see that God reveals to Abram the plan He had for the Israelites being slaves for 400 hundred years then migrating to their own land. God revealed the future to Abram. He also showed him the result; the land of the Israelites- a land flowing of milk and honey. God made a covenant to Abram through this (verse 18).
The Covenants God makes with us are His promises to us. This is to show us that His Word does not fail. As humans, we like to hold on to people’s words and action; that is why God makes Covenants. For us (humans) to be reminded of His Great Power. You would realise that a lot of people do well in remembering all God’s covenants and Promises; because they are expectant of things from God. Most Christians are always expectant.
They always want to receive but what about the giving part. Even in Christianity, humans have a way to still be selfish and greedy. This is why it is important to dip yourself in Christ and make sure your heart, mind and spirit is in sync with Christ. This is to help you do the Will of God and not the will of man.
Always be close to God, He will reveal His plans (and other plans) to you. When He does you have to believe in His Words and have Faith in Him. God bless you.
As a Christian, you know you serve a living God. His words are ye and amen. You do not have to hang on to Covenants; for you know that whatever God tells you would come to pass. It may not be tomorrow or next year. It shall surely come to pass. God bless you!
If you are reading Sammie’s Daily Dose for the first time or you feel inspired this evening to join God’s family- by accepting Christ into your heart; kindly repeat this prayer.
I come to you today as a sinner. I admit that I am a sinner. I believe that Jesus is your Son and He came on to this earth to die for my sins. Dear Lord, let your Son come and fill me. Lord, I ask that He cleanses me off my sins. I am ready to stand for you and profess your Name. Thank you, Lord. Amen.
If you repeated this prayer with all the sincerity of your heart, congratulations!! You are now a part of God’s family. Welcome to the greatest family ever. Heaven is jubilating on your arrival. Your fellow brothers and sisters are also excited to have you on board. You can now be exempted from the wrath of the enemy and of God. Not only do you experience this, but your whole family as well. Wow! Isn’t the God you serve so cool? He is. Not only do you enjoy this, but you enjoy other blessings God has in store for His children.
Being a child of God is a wonderful thing. The road might not always be easy, but God is with you each and every step of the way. Guiding you, helping you and encouraging up. You will never regret this decision; I can assure you of that. Two things I would recommend for you to do are;
Get yourself a Bible (in a version you understand) and meditate on it day and night. In Joshua 1:8, we are told that when you meditate on the Word day and night, you will be prosperous and successful.
Find a Bible- believing church to attend and fellowship with other Christians. This would help you grow spiritually.
I am excited that you made this decision. Welcome! If you would like some help or more understanding into anything, you can leave a message (adding your email address) and I would be willing and happy to help you out. Hallelujah!
Have a wonderful day and let God inspire you!
