In Genesis 12 God made a covenant promise to Abram that God would make him a great nation, bless him, make his name great, bless those who bless him, curse those who curse him, and that through in him all the families of the earth will be blessed. But now quite a bit of time has passed since those promises were uttered. For Abram, none of these promises have occurred that God promised to him and he is beginning to question these promises because of God’s apparent delay. When large amounts of time pass without seeing God’s promises fulfilled it causes us to question if these promises will happen. An obvious example is that Jesus promised to return, yet nearly two thousand years have elapsed since the promise. So we can doubt if God will do what he promised. In this lesson we are going to look at how God strengthens our faith to put our trust in him and the response we must have to our Lord.
