There is not a single book in our scriptures written by Abraham and He did not speak any recorded prophesy. Yet, Abraham is known as the father of the Hebrew nation. It was through Abraham’s seed that all nations on earth have been blessed (Genesis 12:3) and God even refers to this historic man of faith as His friend (Isaiah 41:8).When Abraham was told to leave his country, his people, and his father’s household (Genesis 12:1), he obeyed, even though he had no idea where he was going (Hebrews 11:6). Though Abraham’swife had been barren their entire marriage, when the Lord told the patriarch his offspring would be as numerous as the stars in the sky, Abraham chose to believe God, despite his circumstances. Abraham’s faith was credited to him as righteousness (Genesis 15:5-6).Through this study, you will watch the budding father of a nation question God’s plans, take matters into his own hands, and, at times, compromise truth. Like us, Abraham and his wife, Sarah, made mistakes along their journey with God, but Abraham learned to trust God more fully from each misstep. Abraham became a great man of faith. Through his story, you too, will develop unwavering faith as you gain a greater understanding of the covenant God made with Abraham and his descendants. You will find a greater sense of peace and security. For as a believer in Christ, you are Abraham’s spiritual descendant and an heir according to the promise (Galatians 3:29).
