That in blessing I will bless you, and in multiplying I will multiply your seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is on the sea shore; and your seed shall possess the gate of his enemies;

Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

These words are God’s promise and blessings to Abraham, from which God began His management plan. Every word God said will be fulfilled and perfected, no matter how many years Abraham has passed away, God still does the work He intends to do according to His plan. This is the manifestation of God’s unique authority.

We can see that Abraham gained God’s blessings because of his sincerity and obedience, just as God’s word says, “Though brief, its content is rich: It includes the reason for, and background to, God’s gift to Abraham, and what it was that He gave to Abraham. It is also imbued with the joy and excitement with which God uttered these words, as well as the urgency of His longing to gain those who are able to listen to His words. In this, we see God’s cherishment of, and tenderness toward, those who obey His words and follow His commands. So, too, do we see the price He pays to gain people, and the care and thought He puts into gaining them. Moreover, the passage, which contains the words “By myself have I sworn,” gives us a powerful sense of the bitterness and pain borne by God, and God alone, behind the scenes of this work of His management plan. It is a thought-provoking passage, and one that held especial significance for, and had a far-reaching impact upon those who came after.
