A Son Is Promised to Sarah
"I will never leave you or forsake you" we know it but when tough times come or when things seem out of control. We've read about miracles and heard of miracles but sometimes things seem too big and our faith wavers and we doubt that "all things are possible". Sometimes the darkness of sin makes us believe that we can hide from God. But we can't.
Sarah didn't believe God could do something so big even if it was promised. She did believe in God's plan, she was doing what she was supposed to be doing as a wife, but she didn't think that her desire to be a mom would ever be realized.She couldn't fathom the possibility and then she laughed at its absurdity.
