Gen. 17:1 The Lord expressed how Abram was to walk, and although he wasn’t perfect in his walk, he was blameless.
“Now when Abram was ninety-nine years old, the LORD appeared to Abram and said to him, “I am God Almighty; Walk before Me, and be blameless.
“I will establish My covenant between Me and you, And I will multiply you exceedingly.”
Abram fell on his face…” Genesis 17:1~3a
Abraham was faithful in his walk, learning obedience through the things he suffered. Ismael, lies, and whatever else did not deter him. He kept his focus upon who was leading him, and is an example and encouragement to those of us who walk in the spirit of Isaac, as sons of Abraham.
Our walk is indeed like Abraham’s, we are to allow the Lord to be exactly what He is…Our Lord. Not by our human thinking or strength, but in and through His very presence. This is the intent of His grace. This is what Paul was referring to when he stated; “But by the grace of God I am what I am, and His grace toward me did not prove vain; but I labored even more than all of them, yet not I, but the grace of God with me.” I Cor.15:10
