“I am the God of your father – the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.” Exodus 3:6 NLT
Ever wonder why the Bible refers to God as the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob? Of Noah? Of Moses? It is to keep us focused on God and who He was, is, and will be. The God of our Fathers. And to steer clear of fools who promote a god other than the God of the Bible.
The psalmist aptly summarizes God’s special relationship to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. and by extension, to us:
You are descendants of His servant Abraham,
the children of Jacob, His chosen people.
He is the Lord our God.
His laws are for all the world.
He will keep His agreement forever.
He will keep His promises always.
He will keep His agreement He made with Abraham.
He will keep the promise He made to Isaac.
He made it a law for the people of Jacob.
He made it an agreement with Israel to last forever.
The Lord said, “I will give you the land of Canaan.
The promised land will belong to you.
. Psalm 105:6-11 ICB
