Will I build a life that points to me or to my God?
Pray The Word and Prepare for The Word
Psalm 119:41 LORD, give me your unfailing love, the salvation that you promised me. 42 Then I can answer those who taunt me, for I trust in your word. 43 Do not snatch your word of truth from me, for your regulations are my only hope. 44 I will keep on obeying your instructions forever and ever. 45 I will walk in freedom, for I have devoted myself to your commandments. 46 I will speak to kings about your laws, and I will not be ashamed. 47 How I delight in your commands! How I love them! 48 I honor and love your commands. I meditate on your decrees.
Lord help me to walk in Your freedom today!

This dispersion of people's happened at least 4000 years ago. This means today's 7 billion Souls have all generated from approximately 200 generations after the Tower of Babel and aided by the confused spread of the people and languages.
11 generations from Noah we see the blessing promised to Shem in Genesis 9:26....around 400 years. God's promises come in His time alone.
God's call for Abram to leave his home had to be tough to follow. What has God called you to do that may seem a big ask?
Lord help my faith in you to override my doubts in me.
Fast forward to Hebrews to hear Abraham's Story of faith - https://www.blueletterbible.org/tools/MultiVerse.cfm?s=00091Q
Abraham's faith is a new beginning in two ways:
- God begins to make a way for man's Mending thru Jesus who is a descendant of Abraham.
- The nation of Israel begins with this moment in time with God’s promise of Fame (because of his faith), Family (because of Jesus) and Fertile Land (because of the Promised Land that would become a place of Worship of the One True God).
