The Name: Adonai

· The word translated Lord is the Hebrew word Adonai

· Adonai reflects a master/servant relationship

· Adonai implies ownership, but the focus is more on the working relationship between master/servant

· The master/servant relationship begins with the master and his responsibilities to his servant

· The servant is responsible to faithfully do what they are asked to do

The Story: God’s Covenant with Abram – Genesis 15

· The story of Abram starts with God calling him away from his home and family when he is 75 years old – Genesis 12

· The Lord promised Abram 3 things: a land; a nation, a blessing

· Abram travels to the land God promised him, but encounters hardship, not the promises he was anticipating

· God appears to Abram again and reiterates His promises to him – Genesis 15

· Adonai gives Abram the sign he needs – the sign of an unconditional covenant – Genesis 15:9-17

The Takeaway: Provision, Direction, Trust

· Serving God as Adonai is the most tangible difference the world will ever see between us and them

· As Adonai, He will provide the basics of what your heart needs

· He will provide what you need to live on the mission He has called you to do (Exodus 4:10-12, Isaiah 6:8)

· We are called to walk with Adonai by faith – Genesis 15:6
