And he said unto him, I am Jehovah that brought thee out of Ur of the Chaldees, to give thee this land to inherit it. Genesis 15.7

Did Abraham believe in this promise? His capacity was too small. He voiced his doubt by asking, “O Lord Jehovah, whereby shall I know that I shall inherit it?” This promise was too big for Abraham’s faith to apprehend, so he asked God for a proof to seize upon.

Making a covenant was therefore God’s way of expanding Abraham’s faith. He not only promised but also covenanted with Abraham as to what He would do (v.18). Thus did He cause Abraham to believe. For having established a covenant, God could not help but perform according to His covenant; otherwise, He would be unfaithful, unrighteous, and unlawful. Under the security of such a covenant, Abraham’s capacity for faith was naturally enlarged.
