"For Abraham will certainly become a great and mighty nation, and all the nations of the earth will be blessed through him. I have singled him out so that he will direct his sons and their families to keep the way of the LORD by doing what is right and just. Then I will do for Abraham all that I have promised." Genesis 18:18-19 NLT

Observation
As those who have taken on the role of being a father, we're the recipients of great promises and enormous responsibilities. Abraham wasn't great because he had a moment of faith. He was great because he directed his family to follow his God. When we set an example of consistently obeying God, we (as well as our families) experience the fulfillment of His promises to us.

Application
What promise(s) of God am I believing to experience for my family? In what area of my life has God recently asked me to obey Him? Have I followed through with that, or have I put it off?

Prayer
Father, I thank You that as a believer I am a spiritual descendant of Abraham (Galatians 3:29). Create in me a desire to obey You quickly, and without reservation. I thank You that my family is experiencing Your favor and blessing through what You are doing in my life. I receive all that You have for me in Jesus' Name! Amen.
