Trusting The Promise

What is God saying to us today? Peter Wallace offers a meditation on Genesis 5:1-5:

The word of the Lord came to Abram in a vision, "Do not be afraid, Abram, I am your shield; your reward shall be very great." But Abram said, "O Lord have given me no offspring...." ...The Lord brought him outside and said, "Look toward heaven and count the stars, if you are able to count them." Then he said to him, "So shall your descendants be." —Genesis 5:1-5
