And he brought him forth abroad, and said, look now toward heaven, and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them: and he said unto him, So shall thy seed be. And he believed in the Lord; and he counted it to him for righteousness.
Do you ever wonder why God changed Abram to Abraham? Abraham simply means father of many! This is the promise that God gave him. The change was not just about the promise it was also about the faith. Verse 6 says that Abram believed the Lord and God counted him righteous. The change came when he believed!
Remember that everything you do for the Lord is by faith! If you would just believe and regardless of what circumstances come your way! You must walk by faith and not by sight. Your faith is the first step to a wonderful change!
