Today's reading: Genesis 21:1-7
It's hard for me to imagine Abraham and Sarah having their first child when they were both so old! Yet God did exactly what He told Abraham and Sarah He would do.
The first seven verses of Genesis 21 deliver the strong message that God is faithful! Verse 1 spells it out clearly through these two phrases: "as he had said" and "as he had promised." Isaac's birth from this elderly couple is comforting and encouraging because it reinforces the past, present and future faithfulness and trustworthiness of God. Thank you, God!
Think back over the past few years. What's one example of how has God been faithful to you (answering prayers, fulfilling a God-given desire, guiding you to places you would have never imagined, etc.)? Why is it important to look back and remember what God has done and how He has moved on your behalf? Tami
