SCRIPTURE
And Sarah said, “God has made me laugh, and all who hear will laugh with me.” She also said, “Who would have said to Abraham that Sarah would nurse children? For I have borne him a son in his old age.”
GENESIS 21:6-7

 

OBSERVE
Back in Genesis 18:12, when God said Sarah & Abraham would have a child, Sarah couldn’t help herself & laughs in complete disbelief.  Fast forward a year, & when Isaac is born right when God said he would be, she laughs again.  This time her laughter is out of joy!  God waited till Sarah & Abraham were way past child-bearing years, so that it would be obvious that Isaac had come only through Him.  God had made what seemed impossible, totally possible!

 

APPLICATION
Are there things God has spoken, that I laugh & think, “Yeah right, like that will ever happen…”? Are there things I am tempted to give up believe for simply because it seems to be taking God too long?  Do I believe that God is faithful to His promises or do I think He is withholding from me?

 

PRAYER
Lord I repent of my disbelief.  Help me to stand on your Word & believe that you will be faithful to all You have promised.  You are a good Father who did not even spare Your own Son for us.  Help me to wait on You & Your perfect timing.  I trust that no matter my circumstances, I can laugh with joy at all You have done for me!
