From strength to strength

‘And the LORD said, Shall I hide from Abraham that thing which I do?’ Genesis 18:17
SUGGESTED FURTHER READING: Genesis 18:17–33

The farther we proceed in the history of Abraham, we find his privileges and blessings still increase. When the Lord called him, he went forth not knowing whither; he had only a general promise and was to wait the Lord’s time and way for the rest. The Lord showed him more from time to time. The promise was frequently repeated and always (as we have observed in going through the preceding chapters) with a farther enlargement. In the seventeenth chapter the Lord informed him what should be the state of his posterity after his decease. In this chapter he fixed the precise time when his son Isaac should be born. Having thus satisfaction in what more immediately concerned him himself, the Lord now admits him, as it were, into his counsel, and intimates an unwillingness to execute his judgments against Sodom without acquainting his servant Abraham with what he was about to do. Thus he was led on from strength to strength. His path was like the shining light advancing more and more in nearness and communion with the Lord whom he served [Proverbs 4:18].
FOR MEDITATION:
Poor, weak, and worthless though I am,
He ransomed me from hell with blood,
I have a rich almighty friend;
And by his power my foes controlled;
JESUS, the Saviour, is his name,
He found me, wandering far from GOD,
He freely loves, and without end.
And brought me to his chosen fold.

He cheers my heart, my wants supplies,
And says that I shall shortly be
Enthroned with him above the skies,
O! what a friend is CHRIST to me.
