Today’s verses are Genesis 17:5/15-16:” No longer will you be called Abram; your name will be Abraham for I have made you a father of many nations. God also said to Abraham, “As for Sarai your wife, you are no longer to call her Sarai; her name will be Sarah. 16 I will bless her and will surely give you a son by her. I will bless her so that she will be the mother of nations; kings of peoples will come from her.”
Here we find out one feature of God that is forgotten by most Christians today. He calls things not the way they are, but the way they could be and the way He sees them. He calls the things that are not as if they are. We see things as they are in the physical world and call them that way. However, there is a different reality apart from the one we know (physical one), which is spiritual one. Spiritual reality ultimately influences physical reality. And physical reality changes! That’s why God commanded Abram to stop calling himself Abram and also to call Sarai – Sarah”. They both became what they were not – fathers to the nations.
Let us believe that God can change visible reality for our benefit. God bless you.
