There is time for everything
Genesis 18:14 is there anything too hard for the Lord? At the appointed time I will return to you, according to the time of life and sarah shall have a son.
God told abraham at the appointed time. There is time for everything. Why is there time? So things will change. So life doesnt stay the same.God said according to the time of life? ( this time next year)
Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted; a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; … God didnt say He wont do it. He has made His promise to you, but He has a time for it. In that time He may want to grow you in His word. Prepare you. Show you your purpose. But however it happens it will work out for your good and will be glory unto God.
Durring the time of waiting for God’s promise we will learn to trust Him, depend on Him. Because time is in His hands. Lets ask God to show and direct us on what we are to do during the time of waiting.
Sarah doubted when God spoke regarding her having a child. (Genesis 18:12: And the Lord said to Abraham , why did Sarah laugh saying ‘shall i surely bear a child since I am old? )God will Turn the impossible to possible to build your faith. Because before isaac was born Sarah didn’t believe whether God can do it. But after isaac was born her faith in God was unbreakable. But before the the faith can be built there has to be the impossible looking situation.
Genesis 21 :1 and the Lord visited sarah as He has said, and the Lord did for sarah as He had spoken.
21:6 And sarah said God has made me laugh, and all who hear will laugh with me.7: 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.
Who would have said that you would get your dream job, bought the house you didn’t think you can buy? Marry the man God planned for you?have your own successful business? Be happy within yourself? Overcome your fears and insecurities? Become a better person.
The point is no one would have thought or said. But God has said and God does what He says. And God has you in mind. Because no one can do what God can do. Just know that whatever situation we face is to strengthen our relationship with God not to break us down. Sarah learnt to trust God as a result of the God doing for Her the impossible in her eyes. So lets not focus on the situation to be frustrated. Lets put the situation in God’s hand. There is nothing too hard for God.our hope and trust should be in God who is unchangeable not in our job,money and people. All those things can fade away and will fade away and can disappoint us. But our everlasting father remains the same. (Psalm 90:1-4Before the mountains were born or you brought forth the earth and the world,
from everlasting to everlasting you are God.
