Faith: God's Big Idea
God pointed to the infinite number of stars in the night sky as an example of how numerous the descendants of Abraham would become someday. At the time, Abraham wasn't even a father. God's big idea was for him to have faith in his word.
Staring at passing cars doesn't offer bus riders reassurance that the bus will soon arrive, but it serves as a visual cue of what they are hoping for. This is exactly what God wants Christian men to do to strengthen their faith.
Learning how to handle waiting is a crucial step to maintain the trust in God you'll need to not waiver while your blessing is on the way.
