Genesis 15:3 And Abram said, Behold, to me thou hast given no seed: and, lo, one born in my house is mine heir.

God has just protected Abram and his family as he delivered Lot and all his goods. Then Abram takes a stand not to allow the world to make him rich.

Then God speaks and tells Abram that He, God, will be Abram’s reward and shield. All of that is great but the next verse is Abram saying, well, Lord, if you are really doing all of this what are we going to do about me getting a son like you promised.

I don’t doubt that I have acted and do act worse than Abram but right in the same conversation where God gives him great blessings Abram wants more.

I just wondered now how many times that I am never satisfied. I always seem to be looking for tomorrow and wondering why things are not working out! I want more. I never seem to just be happy, satisfied, and content with what God is doing in my life.

Abram just made me see myself! What about you?
