    20220731 745AM DT God sees and cares

    Second in the series on Genesis on: The messed up family of God. God provides assurance to Abram “Do not be afraid.” Abram is concerned that age 85, 10 years after God’s promises were given, he still does not have a son. God reaffirms his promise. However, they try to fulfil God’s promise by their own means. We suffer the same battle throughout our lives. There is jealousy and mistrust in the messed up family, buy God still looks after the members of the family. From God’s Word, we see, in hindsight, that God does fulfill his promise. He often does so in unexpected ways. He brings about salvation through his Son, Jesus.
