And as Abram responds to that gentle command, he is rewarded with a tiny glimpse of what God has promised for the future. To the north, the south, the east, and the west, all that Abram can see will one day belong to his family.Thousands of years have passed since that day. But God is still the same. Like Abraham, we walk with a promise maker. We talk with a promise keeper. And wherever we are right now, he gently commands us to lift up our eyes so that he can give us a glimpse of what the future holds. Be encouraged.
