The Word of the LORD Came…
Genesis 15:1, 4
1. Abraham had just passed over great wealth considering the glory of the LORD (14:21-24).
2. There could have been some apprehension, second guessing of himself following.
3. There was evidently some fear; what is going to happen now?; type questions of what had happened.
4. The Word of the LORD came and gave Abraham hope, vision and promise for the future.
I. …IN TIMES OF DOUBT AND FEAR (John 14:1-3).
II. …TO GIVE HOPE, PROMISE, VISION.
III. …GIVING ASSURANCE OF RIGHTEOUS DECISION MAKING (v. 6).
i. Trust in the LORD with all your heart; lean not unto your own understanding (Proverbs 3:5-6).
ii. The LORD knows that where we are not guided by vision we perish (Proverbs 29:18).
iii. Believing the LORD is the way of righteousness (Romans 10:9-13).
