Genesis 11-15

My Thoughts

  • We can’t assume to be able to think above God and go around his plan as those building the tower of Babel thought.
  • God will confuse all those that attempt to be god.
  • God promised to Abram that his children would one day have Canaan and all the inhabitants at this time, more than 400+ years before the fulfillment. When God gives us a promise through his word, let us be careful not to dismiss it as too big or hard to grasp when the time comes for us to receive that promise.
  • Abram acted immediately with out question when God directed him to get up and move.
  • A caution to fear man – when Abram told Pharaoh that Sarai was his sister for fear of his life.
  • A careful and Godly way to handle situations, take the humble way. As Abram let Lot take first pick even though it seamed to be the better choice.
  • Abram didn’t want to be made rich through the hands of Sodom. He wasn’t willing to take any reward for rescuing those that had been taken by the enemy. But he also let his men choose, he didn’t speak for them or their experience.
  • God makes Abram a promise to provide for each need bountifully.
  • Abram had the kind of relationship with God that he could bluntly ask what concerned him and expect to receive and answer.
