Wait patiently for Isaac

So she said to Abram, “The LORD has kept me from having children. Go, sleep with my slave; perhaps I can build a family through her.”
Abram agreed to what Sarai said. ( Genesis 16:2 )

God had promised Abraham that he will have a child, who will be his own flesh and blood. Though one would argue that this statement made to Abram (Abraham) was open and almost “vague” as the woman who would bear that child wasn’t mentioned, we will be silenced by the fact that God who put Abram and Sarai together knew that was the only wife he had and so it was Sarai who was captured in the plan of God to have a son with Abraham. And if God could promise Abraham, who had gone past the child bearing age that he would bear a child, then God could quicken the womb of Sarai too. And so now, in the light of this background understanding, we would agree that Sarai didn’t wait long enough for the promise, Isaac before she decided to help her situation. Sarai quickly, thinking God kept her from having children decided to improvise to help the promise of God. But we know what, nothing can help the revealed word of God except God himself. So that in an attempt to help that word, Sarai almost broke her home. If we don’t wait patiently for the word that had gone out of God’s mouth, we may wake up only to realize that we have destroyed the original plan of God by having a support plan. Beloved, instead of helping God, let us allow His word, time enough to come to fruition and then we would see and experience true success and peace. Wait for Isaac—the prophesy you received will be fulfilled—rather than graft in Ishmael.

Prayer_Bead: All Luminous Most High, the God whose words will not return void unless there was a performance of those things He had spoken, guard my heart in waiting patiently and faithfully for your promises fulfilled.
