Scripture: Genesis 22:18 and through your offspring all nations on earth will be blessed, because you have obeyed me."
Observation: The above promise was made by God to Abraham after Abraham had passed a difficult test of faith and obedience. As evidence that God has kept this promise, consider the following: “At least 187 Jews and people of half- or three-quarters-Jewish ancestry have been awarded the Nobel Prize, accounting for 22% of all individual recipients worldwide between 1901 and 2012, and constituting 36% of all US recipients during the same period. …Jews currently make up approximately 0.2% of the world's population and 2% of the US population.” (http://www.jinfo.org/Nobel_Prizes.html) Does God keep His promises or what!!!! Wow!
Application: As I am faithful to obey God, I find that the same God who kept his promise to Abraham, is faithful to keep his promises to me.
Prayer: Lord, You are faithful! It is worth any effort and any sacrifice to serve you! Amen
Making friends for time and eternity!
