Tonight, let’s all go outside and look up at the stars.
Most of the stars we will see are the same stars Abram (God changes his name to Abraham later) saw when God took him outside and told him to ‘count the stars’.
Then God said to Abram, “So shall your offspring be.”
As we read the Old Testament, it appears like these stars represent the Israelites who became the Jewish nation. In Galatians, Paul clarifies for us the identity of Abraham’s children. “Understand, then, that those who have faith are Children of Abraham.”
I am represented by one of those stars in the sky on that night over 2,000 years ago when Abram looked up…..
Thank you, Abba Father, for your faithfulness to Abraham and your faithfulness to me.
