God’s Promises

God promised Abraham that he and his wife, Sarah, would have a baby. But Abraham and Sarah were almost 100 years old! They thought God’s promise was so funny that they laughed(Genesis 17:17 and 18:12). But God kept His promise! They had a baby boy. Abraham and Sarah named their son Isaac.
Before Isaac was born, God promised Abraham that he would have so many descendents (children, grandchildren, etc.) that to count them would be like counting the dust on the earth (Genesis 13:16). God also promised that all people on earth would be blessed because of Abraham (Genesis 18:18).
God has made many promises to you, too. You may read them in the Bible. God keeps His promises. God required Abraham to have faith in order to receive His promises. God also requires you to have faith in order to receive some of His wonderful promises.
