Acts 7:4-5 – What does the Bible say about descendants?

“So he (Abraham) left the land of the Chaldeans and settled in Harran (because God led him there). After the death of his father, God sent him to this land where you are now living. He gave him no inheritance here, not even enough ground to set his foot on. But God promised him that he and his descendants after him would possess the land, even though at that time Abraham had no child.” (Acts 7:4-5)

 I have a friend who wanted children and couldn’t get pregnant. She prayed and asked God to fulfill His promise to give her descendants. One day in the grocery store, a pregnant woman approached her and asked if she wanted children. A couple months later my friend was the mother of twin baby girls.

 God promises His children descendants. You may not have any now, but if you ask God for children and thank him in advance for keeping His promise, He will give you a child. They may not be natural children, but that doesn’t matter. Every non-Jew who is a Christian is adopted into the family of God, Abraham’s family.

 Not only will God grant you a child(ren), He promises your offspring will be delivered from the land of the enemy. (Jeremiah 31:16) They will have peace (Isaiah 54:13). God will save them. (Isaiah 49:25) They will be blessed and mighty upon the earth. (Psalm 112:1-2)

 Father God, I praise You for Your promises concerning my children (and grandchildren). Thank you, Lord, in advance for giving me many descendants, saving them, blessing them, making them mighty upon the earth, and giving them peace. In Jesus’ name I pray, amen.
