“Is anything too difficult or too wonderful for the LORD? At the appointed time, when the season [for her delivery] comes, I will return to you and Sarah will have a son.””Genesis 18:14 AMP
The story of Abraham and Sarah is one I can relate to on so many levels. I know firsthand the agony that is longing for a child and not being able to have one. I know what it’s like to petition the Lord for something day after day, week after week, month after month, year after year, and feel like it’s never going to happen. I know what waiting for a promise fees like. I know what it feels like to have a promise from the Lord, believe it for a little while, and then give up hope because everything points to the exact opposite of what He’s promised you. I know what it’s like to laugh when the Lord tells you something is going to happen in an area that you’ve declared dead and done. Do I like to admit that stuff? Not really. Probably no more than Abraham and Sarah would like us reading their shortcomings for hundreds of years over and over again, openly discussing them around the world. Nevertheless, it’s all true. I think if your honest with yourself you’ve probably been in one of these places too. Maybe you’re there now. I know I am. I am still waiting on a specific promise from the Lord and it’s been nearly a decade. I’m at a place where I have to establish my faith in the situation day by day. Sometimes, minute by minute. I have to recite this verse. I have to remember who God is, and just what He’s capable of. I have to remember that there has been nothing in my life so far that’s been too hard for him, and there never will be. There never will be one thing that I bring before him that he can not handle. I also have to remember that not only can he handle anything, and do anything, that he can and will do it bigger and better than I could ever imagine every single time. After I remember those truths I then I have to remember the last part of this verse, which is indeed the hardest. It’s all in Gods time. It’s not up to me how or when He will move on my situation, it’s my job to simply know He can, He will, and the timing will be perfect, and for His glory. He is a good good father today and everyday. He gives good gifts to His children, and will withhold no good thing from those who love Him. If you’re following the Lord today, and you’re still waiting after years, or just brought something before him today, don’t worry child. He’s got this. He’s got you.
