"Abraham was a man who believed the promise of God. Many times in his life, he came to a point where all he had to go on was the equivalent of a canteen and a promise. Yet he repeatedly proved himself willing to believe that promise, pour out his canteen, and prime the pump of God's blessing in his own life and the life of his physical and spiritual descendants. Abraham was an ordinary man with an extraordinary willingness to place his trust in the promises of God."
