Genesis 15:17-21 - Seeing The Unseen
When the sun had gone down and it was dark, behold, a smoking fire pot and a flaming torch passed between these pieces. On that day the Lord made a covenant with Abram, saying, “To your offspring I give this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the river Euphrates, the land of the Kenites, the Kenizzites, the Kadmonites, the Hittites, the Perizzites, the Rephaim, the Amorites, the Canaanites, the Girgashites and the Jebusites.” Genesis 15:17-21 ESV
So often we are overfocused on the things that are in front of us rather than what’s ahead of us. But if we are to see God’s covenant the way Abram did – true and holy, then we need to see it not just with the lenses of our current satisfaction but with the future generations to come.
