“and said: “By Myself I have sworn, says the LORD, because you have done this thing, and have not withheld your son, your only son — blessing I will bless you, and multiplying I will multiply your descendants as the stars of the heaven and as the sand which is on the seashore; and your descendants shall possess the gate of their enemies. In your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed, because you have obeyed My voice.””
-Seed in Hebrew is written as zera & it means an offspring or descendant.
-God in His tripartite nature made a covenant with Abraham given that; an oath should be administered by two or more parties. The covenant had silent conditions which were revealed after Abraham obeyed Gods’ word. Abraham demonstrated the highest form of self denial & resignation to the will God when he was instructed to sacrifice his only son Isaac. We know that faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen (Heb 11:1). His faith in God bore fruit as he became a father of many nations, his descendants possess the gates of the enemies through Christ & finally those who are in Christ shall inherit the promised land. This covenant was sealed when God gave us His only Son Jesus; making us His offspring; that whoever has faith in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. We are therefore the children of the promise through faith as we partake of Christ through His word & believe that all things are possible with Him. We are also called to sacrifice our time, efforts, finances & ideas to those who need us most; in our homes, families, work places, churches & societies in the quest to bear each one in the love of Christ. Just as Abraham obeyed Gods’ will, may we also remember to follow the will of God in our thoughts, words, actions, dealings, interactions & reflect Christ for we are His children according to the promise.
We thank You Jehovah our Father for giving us this opportunity to see another day in perfect health. We know that many did not make it today, have mercy on their loved ones & satisfy their hearts with total peace. Be with our children Lord, bless them & keep them in perfect health especially during this holiday season & as they prepare to go back to school. Mould our hearts Father & help us to always believe in You & be obedient to Your word. We are Your seed Jesus, help us to bear much fruit in Your love & to overcome every difficulty that come our way. You are not a man that You should lie or a son of man that You should repent Lord, may Your promises come to pass in our lives & in the lives of our descendants for the glory of Your name. Amen
