Four lessons we can learn from this chapter
1. verses 1–2: Expect tests from God. God tested Abraham here and on several other occasions throughout his life. Sometimes Abraham passed the tests, and other times he failed.
2. verses 3–5: Put your eyes on God's promises not on explanations. Faith does not depend upon clear explanations but on promises.
3. verses 6–14: Depend on God for provision. Many of our trials we will have to face alone, without friends and family members, yet God is still with us.
4. verses 15–19: In trials look ahead at what God has for you.
