"Please sell me a piece of land of land so I can give my wife a proper burial" (Genesis 23:4).

Self-control is a fruit of the Spirit. We bring honor to the name of Jesus when we rely on him to help us think clearly and do what is right, even in times of great emotional stress.

"Get rid of that slave woman and her son. He is not going to share the inheritance" (Genesis 21:10).

It's better to wait patiently for God to fulfill his promises, than entangle ourselves with complications trying to hurry the process on our own.

"Abraham replied, 'I thought this was a godless place ...'" (Gen. 20:11).

But there is no such place. God is everywhere, and powerful to override any decision we make to accomplish his perfect will and plan. We are weak, but he is strong.

"God had listened to Abraham's request and kept Lot safe" (Genesis 19:29).

Keep praying... and praying... and praying. God uses your prayers to move someone from where they are to where he wants them to be.

We may laugh... but it's never too late for God to do what he said he would do. His ways are not our ways, and all his promises are yes and amen.

God sees you right where you are, and is telling you what to do next. (Genesis 16)

Remember when God started a conversation with you... planted a desire in your heart... that would not only bless you, but bless the world for his sake?

It's time to pick up the conversation where it left off. (Genesis 15)
