  • DUNCAN/‘Faith Assured’
    Wednesday, July 18, 2018 12:00 PM Turn in your Bible to Genesis 17:1-8. In the wake of the Hagar-Ishmael soap opera, we find this man of God wavering in his faith, almost ceasing to look for God's grand fulfillment of His promise. These verses tell us the story of what God did for Abram right in that moment of his need. This passage can be broken into two parts. In verses 1-3 we have a picture of God’s coming to Abram and reviving his faith by showing Abram again who He is, by reminding Abram that he has entered into covenant with Him. Then in verses 4-8 we see God renaming Abram, calling him Abraham, and repeating to him the promises of the covenant. So verses 1-3 are the prelude, and verses 4-8 are the promises in this passage.
