Our Shield and Very Great Reward (Gen 15:1-5)

In chapter 15 of Genesis, the Lord once again gives Abram a vision to bolster his faith. God allays Abrams fears, first by telling him that he is his shield. Then God tells Abram that he is his very great reward. However, Abram still has some confusion and so asks a question. He wants clarification about God’s promise. Yet within the essence of Abram’s question lies the answer, which is that he needs God to come to him.
