An African story recounts how someone maked fun of a Christian and asked him: “How do you know that God exists?” He responded: “How do I know if a human, chicken or donkey went around the hut during the night? The traces in the sand will tell!”
By choosing Israel as God’s people, the creator commences the relationship. A large part of the Bible is dedicated to this people to show everyone what it means to be blessed by God.
The wonderful stories of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph and David are witness to that. In their life story and in the Psalms the light of a relationship with God shines through. God writes history with imperfect men who are willing to be led by him. Today, he still is looking for men and women that will fully trust him.
I will make you into a great nation, and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing.Genesis 12:2
God also left traces in your life. Where do you recognize his signature in your life?
