This was an amazing time spent in God's word. It was the story of Abraham and Sarah's names being changed, and the conception of their son Isaac. It also contains the interesting story of Sodom and Gomorrah.
Anyway, I've decided that the format I have been using for my Bible readings wasn't working for me. It seems like I'm just summarizing what I've read instead of writing about spiritual insights or words of encouragement that I've found.
As I look back at my current reading, something that spoke to me from this passage was when Abraham was bargaining with God. When he was asking God to spare Sodom if 50 righteous men were found there, then asking what about if there was 45, then 30, then 20, then 10 (Genesis 18:22-33). And every time God said "Yes"!
How awesome is it that God is so willing to answer our prayers and pleas to Him, yet we don't have the boldness of Abraham to just ask.
James 4:2, "Yet you do not have because you do not ask."
Hebrews 4:16, "Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need."
Amen! God bless you and keep you.
