God had reiterated this promise to Abraham, and it was fulfilled later on. God also promised and prophesied of Abram's children being enslaved in Egypt. So God not only told Abram of his nation, but of some of the events that would unfold through history.
These things have happened, and we know that the promises God made were completed perfectly. We can also trust that promises from God given today are also going to be completed in this day and age. God is a trustworthy God!
