“It was on that occasion that the Lord made a covenant with Abram, saying: ‘To your descendants I give this land.’ ” —Genesis 15:18
As with Noah, the Lord made a covenant with Abram. He would be Abram’s God, make him the father of a great nation, and give him the promised land. As great as God’s covenant with Abram was, the new covenant (Jer 31:31) He has made with us makes the old one look like nothing (2 Cor 3:9-11).
Prayer: Father, I covenant with You. I abandon my life to You.
Promise: “Abram put his faith in the Lord, Who credited it to him as an act of righteousness.” —15:6
