This young convert was deeply impressed and determined to make these the rules of his life. From that day onward throughout his life he made it a rule to spend the first moments of his day alone with God and God's Word.

Before we go to the next point, Let’s remind ourselves of how the prophecy of Genesis 15:12-21 was working itself out.
God’s plan is to remove His people from their oppression as He judges Pharaoh’s wickedness, and bring His people back to the land He has promised them, a land in which time is running out for the pagan peoples there because they won’t __________________.
