“[Abram] believed in (trusted in, relied on, remained steadfast to) the Lord.”
Ge 15:6 AMP

Abraham came from a land of idol worshippers. He was the first in his family to serve the true God. And to do it he had to overcome his background, his training, and the opinions of those around him. In obedience to a God He didn’t fully know, he had to leave the security of home and head for a destination he couldn’t describe to anyone. Did he have flaws and weaknesses? Sure—find someone who doesn’t. Did he make mistakes? Yep, big ones! But it’s mindblowing what God will do for and through a man or woman who’ll “trust in, rely on and remain steadfast [to Him].” One word sums up how Abraham served God: “wholeheartedly.” God made a covenant with Abraham promising him fame, wealth, long life, protection, and a miracle child in his old age. And Abraham’s blessings are promised to you when you accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior (See Gal 3:14). Tracking Abraham would have been easy, because everywhere he went he built an altar to God. There are several recorded in Scripture, the most famous being the one on which he laid his son Isaac (See Ge 22). There was nothing and no one Abraham loved more than God. And what God did for Abraham, He will do for you if you’ll serve Him wholeheartedly. He will cause people to look at you and say, “That man, that woman, serves a God who really cares about them; nobody else could make those things happen in their life.” The blessing of God is what you get in exchange for wholehearted devotion. When you think about it, it’s a small price to pay.
