“But Abram said, “Sovereign Lord, what can you give me since I remain childless and the one who will inherit my estate is Eliezer of Damascus?” And Abram said, “You have given me no children; so a servant in my household will be my heir.””‬‬

INSIGHT
-Children in Hebrew is written as yalad which it means lad, seed or offspring. This word has a multitude of meanings in Scripture. Jesus was called a Child at birth (Mat 2:11), Benjamin at around thirty years ( Gen 44:20 ), Solomon called himself a little child (1 Kings 3:7 ) etc. Descendants of man representing certain groups were called children I.e. children of Edom, Moab, Israel etc. Figuratively those who are ignorant are called children (1 Cor 14:20 ) & the humble ( Mat 19:13-15). Believers are called children of light (Luke 16:8), children of obedience ( 1 Peter 1:14 ) & children of God (Gal 3:26).
-God spoke to Abraham in a vision assuring him that He was his shield & great reward. Abraham thought of how important it was to have descendants & how one promise of inheritance would be fulfilled yet another remained unanswered. God then took him outside & promised him many descendants like the stars of the sky & he trusted in God, & it was accounted to him for righteousness. We know that righteousness only comes through Christ, so Abraham believed in the coming of Christ through his seed & was made righteous (John 8:56). The scripture foresaw in advance & announced to Abraham in advance that God would justify the Gentiles through faith & all nations shall be blessed through him. Therefore, those who have faith are children of Abraham & are blessed together with Abraham the man of faith (Gal 3:7-9). We are thus the seed of Abraham & justified through faith in Jesus Christ. With Eliezer Abraham’s servant inheriting his estate, the world would remain Christ-less & without faith one takes Eliezer’s root, a servant without inheritance of the promise. We are called therefore put all our trust in God, in all areas of our lives for we have already been blessed through Abraham; patiently awaiting manifestation not by our works but through faith in Jesus Christ.
