In this powerful and strange story, we see Abram responding to God – firstly with questions and uncertainty and then with faith and belief.
God reminds him of:

  • Who he is – the Lord
  • What he has done – brought him out from his home country
  • What he will do – give him the land
  • What experience do we have of God, his acts and his promises?

Reading: Genesis 15:1-21

Questions to think about:

  • What picture of God appears from this passage?
  • Review how Abram responds to God’s words and promises in this passage. Do you see yourself responding in similar ways?
  • How would you feel if God told you that one of his promises wouldn’t come into effect for over 400 years (v13)?
