God, our shield and our reward

Bible in 90 days: Day 1 – Genesis 1-16

“Fear not, Abram. I am your shield. Your reward will be very great.” Genesis 15:1 ESV

Frederic, Lord Leighton (British, Scarborough 1830–1896 London)
Abram and the Angel (Dalziels’ Bible Gallery), 1865–1881

God protects and provides for those whom He calls. We do not need to attempt to make a name for fret over our own safety. This is what the Babylonian tower-builders were worried about just a few chapters previously. Instead, we must merely take God at His word, and follow Him where it tells us to go.

(I’m closing out 2017 by reading through the Bible in 90 days. I’ll be attempting to post a verse and a brief reflection from each days reading. You can follow the whole series here.)
