I.The Blessing of Abraham

A.The Blessing of Abraham Review

1.(Gal. 3:13-14, 29; Gen. 24:1) Foundation verses

a.(Gen. 12:4-5) Every time Abram disobeys God or doesn’t seek or wait on God about his situation, trouble comes.

b.(Gen. 12:10-16) it looked like Abram suffered no consequences and only fared well from his actions in Egypt.

B.Genesis 16 Hagar and Ishmael

1.(Gen. 16:1-6) Abram acts on what Sarai says and not what God says.

a.Very similar to Adam and Eve’s situation.

b.It’s always a bad idea to help God with his plan.

2.(Gen. 16:7-12) 1st mention of “The Angel of Lord”

3.(Gen. 16:13-16) Running ahead of God never speeds things up, but slows things down.
