I will make you a great nation, and I will bless you. This is taken from Genesis 12:2.

When Jehovah attracted Abraham to move his household to the land of Canaan, he willingly complied. Because of Abraham’s faith and obedience, Jehovah established the above–mentioned covenant with him. Yes later, however, Abraham and his wife, Sarah, were still childless. Had hope forgot and the promise that he may have made to Abraham? Moreover, life in Canaan was not easy. Abraham and his household had left behind their home and relatives in Ur, a prosperous city and Mesopotamia. They’ve traveled over 1000 miles (1600 KM) to reach Canaan, where they live in tents, endured famine, and faced marauders. (Genesis 12:5, 10; 13:18; 14:10–16) Yet, they had no desire to return to the comforts in Ur! (Hebrews 11:8–12, 15) Rather than focus on “the things on the earth,” Abraham “put faith in Jehovah.” (Genesis 15:6; Colossians 3:2) Yes, he fixed his mind on the things above and that he concentrated on God’s promises.
