It’s only natural to have doubts after someone has promised us the same thing time and again but hasn’t followed through. It can be difficult to maintain patience in the wake of disappointed expectation. Inaction, whether real or perceived, can erode trust and confidence. Eventually, we need an incredible amount of assurance before we can accept that person’s word again. In Genesis 15–16, we hear God's three-fold response when Abram expressed this kind of doubt.
