Daily Devotional
February 11
And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.
Genesis 12:2–3
God said to Abram, “I’m going to give you a name, make you a nation, and protect you. Those who bless you will be blessed; those who curse you will be cursed.” In other words, you’re going to have primacy, identity, and security.

I find this intriguing because those were the three things man had wanted so desperately at Babel (Genesis 11:4). “Let us build a tower,” said man, “whose top may reach unto heaven (primacy); and let us make us a name (identity), lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth” (security).

The same is still true. We want something meaningful to do in life - primacy. Or we want to discover who we are - identity. Or we need security relationally or financially. Jesus said, “If you seek first the Kingdom, all these things will be added to you” (see Matthew 6:33).
This Daily Devotional is an excerpt from the book "A Pillar By Day" by Pastor Jon. "A Pillar By Day" is a collection of 365 short devotions from the Old Testament books of Genesis through Deuteronomy.  If you would like your own copy of "A Pillar By Day" you may click here to go to the SearchLight Store
