And he [God] brought him [Abram] outside and said, "Look toward heaven, and number the stars, if you are able to number them."
Then he said to him, "So shall your offspring be."
And he believed the Lord, and he counted it to him as righteousness.
I'm thankful for Abram's faith, that he believed the Lord. Tomorrow I'll read about how he tried to take matters into his own hands, but for now, in chapter 15, his faith is more sure. I'm thankful that God used a man like Abram and a woman like Sarai to make a heritage that would bring us the Christ.
This is what I love about the Old Testament. The name of Jesus is whispered throughout it. And I didn't even mention that I read about Melchizedek! Melchizedek!
That alone is absolutely fascinating.
I am delighting in the works of the Lord in the Old Testament.
Great are the works of the Lord,
studied by all who delight in them.
