Genesis 15:1-7

After these things the word of the LORD came to Abram in a vision: “Fear not, Abram, I am your shield; your reward shall be very great.” But Abram said, “O Lord GOD, what will you give me, for I continue childless, and the heir of my house is Eliezer of Damascus?” And Abram said, “Behold, you have given me no offspring, and a member of my household will be my heir.” And behold, the word of the LORD came to him: “This man shall not be your heir; your very own son shall be your heir.” And he brought him outside and said, “Look toward heaven, and number the stars, if you are able to number them.” Then he said to him, “So shall your offspring be.” And he believed the LORD, and he counted it to him as righteousness.

Abrahamic Covenant:

God says 3 things to Abram
Fear Not: - Do not be afraid. Do not be terrified. (This is the fear that is wrong.) God tells us not to be afraid of anything other than Him who can kill the body and soul, which is God.  However, this is a reverence, honor, respect.  
God tells Abram not to be afraid or terrified of Him.


I am your shield:
From גָּנַן (H1598)
a protector; also the scaly hide of the crocodile:—× armed, buckler, defence, ruler, scale, shield.


Your reward will be great:
From שָׂכַר (H7936)
 hire (9x), reward (9x), wages (6x), price (2x), fare (1x), worth (1x).


BUT - here comes the doubt.  Abram doesn't think it could happen because he is childless, so Abram provides God with a solution.  
Say what?

Abrahamic Covenant - God's promise to Abraham.  God is the one fulfilling.
God says, no Abram your very own son will be your in heir...  just look at the stars, you will have as many descendants as the stars!

This time Abram believed.  His faith made Abram righteous in the eyes of God.  

Consistently from Genesis to Revelation God requires FAITH to become righteous before Him.  Believe my friend.  Believe in the promises of God.  He speaks to you through His Word, and the Word will remain forever.

The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God will stand forever.
Isaiah 40:8

Do you feel that you've grown too old to do what God has been calling you to do?  Please don't feel that way. Keep seeking His will; keep digging deep into His Word.  His plans are great for you and you are never too old OR TOO YOUNG to carry out God's plan for your life. In order to be in God's will, you must talk to Him, read His word and commune with other Christians.  The devil is sneaky and actually uses the word of God to try to trip you up. So it's super helpful to have other Christian friends who keep you accountable to discerning the voice of God.  The devil comes as an angel of light. He's an imitator of God.  He will take everything God has done that is good and try to use if for evil.  God implemented the very first place of worship, which is the tabernacle in the Old Testament.  How many churches do you know that are not teaching the truth, or the Word of God?
