Events of the Bible: The Twelve Tribes of Isreal ~Weekly Devotion~

What We Learned This Week:
Having promised Abraham that He would cause a great nation to come from his descendants, God increasingly revealed His plan through Abraham's son Isaac and Isaac's son, Jacob.
Jacob, whose name was changed by God to Israel, had twelve sons. They each became a tribe and are known as the twelve tribes of Israel. To this day all their descendants are known as the Israelites or Jews. At this time, they were God's chosen people.
Relating it to Your Life:
Wow. God didn't disappoint. He kept his promise. He made Abraham a great nation and used him, despite of the mistakes he made, to do great things and accomplish a lot for the Lord. This is something that we could all easily have too if we stay faithful to God and pray for opportunities to make a difference. School started back for me today, and I hope that you will join with me and praying that as the new school year approaches, that God will use you in a big way this year, just like he used Abraham.
This Weeks Reading: Exodus 1-2
