"The Lord said to Abram after Lot had parted from him, 'Lift up your eyes from where you are and look north and south, east and west. All the land that you see I will give to you and your offspring forever. I will make your offspring like the dust of the earth, so that if anyone could count the dust, then your offspring could be counted. Go, walk through the length and breadth of the land, for I am giving it to you.'" NIV translation
Abram took a step in the right direction when he sent Lot away and now God speaks to him again. Here, God gives Abram more information about the blessing that He proclaimed while he was still back in Haran. When he had arrived in Canaan, God had told him that the land would be given to his offspring but, now, he learns that he will have a vast number of children. Once again, this would have taken a measure of faith to believe as Abram still did not have even one son. We see from this passage that, when we get back on the right track and listen to God, He is waiting for us. Our little detours do not change His plans for us and He will still bless us.
