The Bible says, “Therefore Sarah laughed within herself, saying, After I am waxed old shall I have pleasure, my lord [Abraham – her husband] being old also?” (Genesis 18:12) It’s just human nature to doubt the Lord GOD, especially when the odds are against us! As you know this great lady (Abraham’s wife – Sarah) had been waiting for many, many, many years for a baby – the promised seed. Any body (in their right mind) would have given up. Any body (in their right mind) would tell an old lady, “Honey, IT JUST AIN’T GONNA HAPPEN!” Youse eighty-nine (89) years old and you are way, way, way past the age of child bearing – forget it! In fact, you’ve forgotten what sex is!
BRING IT DOWN ON HOME:
In my last Blog, I talked about Abraham’s three Divine visitors – the Lord GOD [JESUS] and two angels who appeared in the Plains of Mamre. No matter who you are (poor, rich, good looking or not, sick, well, short, tall, etc.), the LORD JESUS can find you and help you, if you ask HIM! You can run but youse can’t hide from the LORD GOD!
In this story, the LORD put life into Sarah’s barren womb. She was scientifically beyond baring a baby and the LORD gave her the strength to birth the baby. What a spectacular story! Certainly, Sarah said within herself, “LORD, if I have found favor – pass not away, I pray thee, from thy servant…” Let’s not forget old ABE who still had juice left in him and a desire to make love to his wife who was way up in age! It’s a miracle their maid and butler didn’t help them into bed!
I’m thinking of a Gospel song which says, “…there is no secret what GOD can do – what HE’s done for others, HE’ll do for you…” As a little girl, I remember the Saints singing these words but (at that time), the words did not mean anything to me. Perhaps, you have stories about your childhood, your teen years, your young adulthood, and/or your life as you breathe and exist today! Be honest and take a little time to reflect back over your life. There were multiple times, you were shipped- wrecked but the LORD heard your cries and HE looked down with compassions, forgiveness, and mercy on you. Amen!
If Sarah were down here on Earth today, she’d give you her testimony! But, we have a better testimony! The Lord JESUS (paraphrasing) asked., “Is There ANYTHING Too Hard For ME?”
Have a Blessed Day!
