Sara, who was Abraham’s wife, received a miracle from God, even though she thought she could not have children, because of her age.
Therefore Sarah laughed within herself, saying, “After I have grown old, shall I have pleasure, my lord being old also?”
This story is shocking, when we hear that Sara laughed after having heard the man of God said that she would have a child.
At that time Sara did not believe what she was hearing from Lord. Surprised, she thought: “I am already old, how can I have a child, if my husband is old too and he has no strength.”
Here we can see that the Lord tells Sarah, that for Him nothing is impossible, that He does everything in His time. But later we will see how the Lord speaks.
13 And the Lord said to Abraham, “Why did Sarah laugh, saying, ‘Shall I surely bear a child, since I am old?’
14 Is anything too hard for the Lord? At the appointed time I will return to you, according to the time of life, and Sarah shall have a son.”
15 But Sarah denied it, saying, “I did not laugh,” for she was afraid.
And He said, “No, but you did laugh!”
Sometimes there are difficult moments in which doubt comes into our lives. Sara, woman of God, when she heard these words said she was afraid to hear that she would have a child, since humanly this was impossible because of their advanced age.
We have to believe in the promises of God, since faithful is the one who promises and we should never question his words, since God is not like men, God always fulfills.
The Word says that Sara was afraid. But when the time came to be pregnant, Sarah believed, and the Lord gave her strength so that she could conceive her son named Isaac.
By faith Sarah herself also received strength to conceive seed, and she bore a child when she was past the age, because she judged Him faithful who had promised.
And to conclude, it is good to wait when the Lord promises us, because just as he did with Sarah, he can also do with us if we believe, because he is the Lord, good, powerful and just, someone who when he says “I will do”, does and fulfills above all the obstacles that want to rise up against of us. Believe and He will do, trust, and He will arrive at the time that corresponds. As he did with Sara....
