Scripture: Genesis 15:2-4

Genesis 15:2-4 says, “But Abram said, ‘Lord GOD, what will You give me, seeing I go childless, and the heir of my house is Eliezer of Damascus?’ Then Abram said, ‘Look, You have given me no offspring; indeed one born in my house is my heir!’ And behold, the word of the LORD came to him, saying, ‘This one shall not be your heir, but one who will come from your own body shall be your heir.’” Again, the Word of the Lord came to Abram saying, “No steward born in your house will be your heir, but one born from your own body.” When the Word of the Lord comes to us, we really need to pay attention because God is offering us information that is crucial for the season we are entering. As I began to look at the numbers, the colon moved and 44:4 came into view. I started to look up every address in Scripture that had a chapter 44 and verse 4. The first one in Genesis I overlooked because I could not find any relevance to it. But the next four could all be connected by the meaning of the numbers in a prophetic thread. Each one supplying a piece of the puzzle that made up more of a whole picture. There is a reason that we take time and pray through the words we get from the Lord. Often times the understanding of what God is saying unfolds over time. While we may not see anything initially, if we continue to prayerfully consider a passage, the Holy Spirit will open our understanding so we have the full picture. When the Word of the Lord comes to us, sometimes we must take time to pray out the full meaning. When we do, it is always worthwhile.
