Sarah became pregnant and bore a son to Abraham in his old age, at the very time God had promised him… Abraham was a hundred years old when his son Issac was born to him.–Genesis 21:2,5
Read the whole passage in Genesis 21:1-7.
Finally, the long-awaited promise came true. A child was born to an aged, desert-wandering couple who could only hope and trust in God’s impossible promise. Sometimes we forget that the same God who created the universe, the same God who wrote the laws of physics and who sent his Son to die on a cross, is the same God who still works and moves in this world. The same God chronicled in the Bible still offers strength and rewards, relationship and forgiveness. The God who planned the rise and fall of empires has a plan for you and me. How might our lives be different if we lived with this at the front of our minds? How might they way we treat our families, do our jobs, or interact with others change if we believed that the God who loved Abraham loves us as well?
