Daily Fountain 2017 - The Covenant Keeping God

Monday June 19

Bible Reading:     Gen. 17: 15 - 27
Topic:         The Covenant Keeping God

Abraham was 99 years old and Sarah, 90 years when God appeared to Abram and promised to give him a child (v. 12) and gave also the covenant to make him a father of many nations (v. 4).

God changed Abram's name to Abraham (that is from "a father" to "a father of nations". v. 5)

Verses 23 - 27 show the fulfillment of the covenant of circumcision by Abraham and his entire household.

In doing this, Abraham moved the Hands of God Who in turn blessed him at the appointed or set time.

The God of Abraham is still very much alive and active. He will meet all your needs as you approach, ask, trust and submit to Him through Jesus Christ.

God has set dates and times in life.

O God of Abraham, help me to walk with You daily by faith as I go through life, Amen.

Memory Verse             Gen. 17: 24
"And Abraham was ninety years old and nine, when he was circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin."
