This Sunday's message: The Song of Zechariah

February 9

Today's reading: Genesis 26:1-35

Today we begin a new section of our reading plan: The promise continued through the patriarchs. We'll be reading about how God fulfills his promise to Abraham by giving him twelve descendants from which the tribes of Israel emerge.

In this chapter, God reaffirms the covenant He had made with Abraham and promises to bless Isaac. But just like Abraham had done earlier, Isaac doesn't really trust God and tells the Philistine king that his wife is his sister. But God blesses him anyway and he became wealthy. Once again, we see that God is faithful to His promises even when His people rebel against Him. But we need to be careful never to presume upon God's mercy and grace.
