December 6: Genesis 15

Welcome to The Intentional Podcast. Setting aside time for prayer and Scripture meditation can change the posture of your day. Thank you for spending a few minutes with us as we turn our attention to what Jesus has for the day ahead.

OPENING PRAYER:  

Before you read the Scripture for today, limit the distractions around you and spend time in prayer. Spend time thanking God for the opportunity we have to spend with Him through the reading of His Word.

SCRIPTURE:

Genesis 15

HISTORICAL CONTEXT:

Genesis 15 is a repeating of the covenant and calling of Abram from Genesis 12. God reaffirms His covenant with Abram, after Abram expresses his doubts. This isn’t the typical style of a covenant (like we noted in Day 4), so it’s important to note that God responds to the doubts of His people with kindness and compassion. 

REFLECTION QUESTIONS:

  • What phrases stood out to you?
  • What might God be saying to you through this passage, and how can you respond today?
  • What does this passage tell us about God? How does it look forward to Jesus’ coming?
