IRONIC PROMISES

Daily Devotional

“And I will make you a great nation, and I will bless you, and make your name great; and so you shall be a blessing; and I will bless those who bless you, and the one who curses you I will curse” (Genesis 12:2-3).

The call of God extended to Abraham is representative of all those who would join the family of faith. It is a call to renounce and depart from all things safe, comfortable and familiar, and to venture forth into a place of not knowing. Ironically, when this journey of faith is embraced, it is accompanied by a promise from God that provides the very things we crave–security, well-being, prominence, and prosperity; things the world tells us it can offer, but cannot.
