God Called Abram

One day, God told Abram to leave his country, his friends, and part of his family . He told Abram to travel to a land that God would show him . God promised Abram that his name would be well-known and respected . God told Abram that He would take care of him and his family .

Abram didn’t know where God wanted him to go, but he went where God directed him . Abram took his wife Sarai and his nephew Lot, along with their servants and everything they owned .

After a long journey, Abram arrived at Canaan . God spoke to Abram . “I will give all this land to your children and their children and their children .” Abram built an altar and thanked God for his blessings .

Many years later, God came to Abram in a vision . This time Abram pointed out that he had no children to live in the land God had given . Instead, Abram’s servant would get everything when Abram died .

God said, “You will have your own son .” God took Abram outside to see the stars . He said, “Look up . Count the stars, if you can . That’s how many children will be born into your family . I am the God who brought you here for this .”
“How can I know this will happen?” Abram asked God .

God told Abram to get a cow, a goat, a ram, a turtledove, and a pigeon . Abram laid the animals in two lines opposite each other . As darkness came, God told Abram that in the future his family would be slaves but that after 400 years they would be set free . God promised Abram this would not happen in his lifetime, but that it would happen .

In the dark, a smoking fire pot and a torch of fire appeared and moved between the animals . God did this to show that He would keep His promise to give Abram and his family the land .
