Genesis 15 How Can I Know?
God exalts Abram for his faith by crediting him with righteousness. Yet Abram repeatedly expresses his doubts even in the midst of faithful walking with God. "How can I know?" he asks. God responds with a covenant ratification ceremony that amazes Abram and anchors us in real hope. No one could see this coming! See also Galatians 3:13-14 and Hebrews 6:17-19.
