When Abram was ninety-nine years old the LORD appeared to Abram and said to him, “I am God Almighty; walk before me, and be blameless, that I may make my covenant between me and you, and may multiply you greatly.” Then Abram fell on his face. And God said to him, “Behold, my covenant is with you, and you shall be the father of a multitude of nations. No longer shall your name be called Abram, but your name shall be Abraham, for I have made you the father of a multitude of nations. I will make you exceedingly fruitful, and I will make you into nations, and kings shall come from you. And I will establish my covenant between me and you and your offspring after you throughout their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be God to you and to your offspring after you. And I will give to you and to your offspring after you the land of your sojournings, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession, and I will be their God.”

This passage teaches us several things: 1) We are never too old to have an experience with God or be used for His honor and glory; 2) God is Almighty—He has all power, is all sufficient, and has the authority to give anything to anyone; 3) He calls those whom He chooses to walk before Him and be blameless—Blameless, in this sense, means complete surrender to God with our whole heart; 4) God does not forget or fail to keep His promises, even when we get in the way and mess it up in our attempts to “help” Him. The Almighty God is always faithful.'
