In this passage, Abram was upset with God because he didn’t have children and his servant, Eliezer of Damascus, would inherit everything. God then helped Abram by promising  that he would have lots of children. Abram didn’t believe what God was saying, so to show that he was telling the truth, God made a covenant with Abram stating that Abram would have children and his children would have lots of land.

This passage is very important to our daily lives because it shows that when we need God most, he will always be there for us. God ended up helping Abram by making a covenant with him stating that Abram would have children, and they would have lots of land. Abram might not have trusted God in the first place, but when he needed God the most, God helped him. This passage shows that even though we think God isn’t there to help, he still helping us to his fullest capacity. I have learned a lot by just reading this passage because it made me realize that it might not look like God is going to help us with our problems, but at the end of the day, he will always be by our sides.
