This 30-day devotional takes the reader, event by event, through Abraham’s life story. The author, David Ramos, systematically guides the reader through every account of Abraham’s life in a separate entry, and it gives the reader a very good overview of what the Bible recorded about him – and what we can learn from his story today. Each entry ends with a “Takeaway“ – a simple summary of what we can learn from that particular instance in Abraham’s life. In this devotional, you will learn about Abraham, but most of all about an Almighty, intimately involved God Who is just as real today as He was then.
I really enjoyed this devotional, because by reading about Abraham’s experiences separately, I was constantly reminded that he was just a normal human being like each of us, struggling with fear, sin and unfulfilled desires. Just like each of us, he had to choose to have faith in the God Who conquers even when a situation seems impossible, before he saw the outcome. This encourages me – I too can have faith in the midst of difficult trials in my journey. Jesus said, “Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.” (John 15:14) Through his obedience, Abraham was called the Friend of God (James 2:23) – what a testimony!
