Following hot on the heels of cosmic blessing (Genesis 12:2-3), Abraham is quickly shown to be a sinner just like you or me. He was meant to be the conduit of all heaven’s blessings for the nations yet the very first opportunity he has to interact with the nations, what does he bring? Curses. Curses through disobedience. And so God brings him through a wilderness time and back to his
place of sacrifice. There Abraham would learn that he is not the sinless Mediator to bless the world – Christ is. But God will use even our greatest failures to bring greater glory to the name of Jesus.
PRAISE God that He uses failures like you and me.
PRAY that He would use us today.
