Mother of Many Nations: Sarah, Wife of Abraham
Genesis 17:16- 18:15, 21:1-3
God made a promise to Sarah, as well as Abraham. He told her that she would be the “mother of many nations” (Gen. 17:16). However, much time passed between the revelation and the realization.
First, Sarah in her skepticism, allowed her handmaid, Hagar, to conceive a child with her husband, Abraham. Then, she chastised Abraham for her mistake. She laughed at the Lord (in disguise) when he told her again, that she would conceive a child (Gen. 18:12). True to His word, Sarah conceived when she was ninety years old and gave birth to a son, Isaac (Gen. 21:3). Despite her doubt, God fulfilled His promise.
Sometimes, we try to put God in a box. Through preconceived notions, we have already decided what God can and can not do in our lives. When He makes a promise to us that is outside of our realm of possibility, we, in essence, “laugh” like Sarah.
The Bible says that “God is not a man, that he should lie…” (Num. 23:19, KJV). When we read a promise from God in the Bible, we must believe it! When He whispers to our hearts in the middle of the night, trust Him! God longs to shower blessings of righteousness on all of His children. Unbelief can make this difficult. Our lack of faith stunts our spiritual growth and stops up the wellspring of heaven.
If we, like Sarah, have a problem with the “impossible”, we should confess it to God during prayer time. Admit that we struggle and ask Him to help. Let His peace guide us into an ever deepening faith!
What has God promised, that you are having trouble believing? ___________
