The world is filled with uncertainty & brokenness. Life is often filled with suspense; wondering what will happen next. Once, when Ruth Graham -- Billy Graham’s wife -- was facing difficult times & filled w/every reason to worry, suddenly it seemed to her that the LORD was saying to her, “Stop studying the problems & start studying the PROMISES.” (Preach Sourcebook, p. 806).
That’s what we’re going to do in this study of Genesis: Instead of fixating on the problems of this world, we’re going to focus on the promises of God. We will discover that, then as now, we are "Created for Blessing."
