Scripture:   Genesis 22:18  and through your offspring  all nations on earth will be blessed, because you have obeyed me."

Observation:    The above promise was made by God to Abraham after Abraham had passed a difficult test of faith and obedience.  As evidence that God has kept this promise, consider the following:  “At least 187 Jews and people of half- or three-quarters-Jewish ancestry have been awarded the Nobel Prize, accounting for 22% of all individual recipients worldwide between 1901 and 2012, and constituting 36% of all US recipients during the same period.  …Jews currently make up approximately 0.2% of the world's population and 2% of the US population.”   (  Does God keep His promises or what!!!!  Wow!        

Application:   As I am faithful to obey God, I find that the same God who kept his promise to Abraham, is faithful to keep his promises to me.    

Prayer:   Lord, You are faithful!  It is worth any effort and any sacrifice to serve you!   Amen
