Lets look at it from her point of view. Both she and Abraham were well past childbearing years. She knew that she could bear no children. Who wouldn’t have laughed? Who wouldn’t have thought the idea of an elderly woman giving birth to a child to be hilariously funny? She forgot one important fact though. She forgot whose messengers they were. She forgot that the message came from God! She scoffed, and she forgot that with God all things are possible. When God gives us our instructions, which are we to question His judgment? God does not always choose the Hollywood ideal to do a task. He generally chooses the person most willing to conform to His ideal. What God tells us to do is no laughing matter. It is usually a matter of most seriousness. We ought to learn from Sarah and not laugh in the face of God. How many times have we refused to teach a class, or visit a friend, or bake a cake, or prepare a meal because we thought we were not capable? How many times have we passed a job on to someone else because we felt that we were not the best suited for the job? How many times do we think that God knows who is suited? The answer to the last question is EVERY TIME. God knows best each time, and when we are presented with a challenge, we can accomplish it with the help of the Lord.

SO the Lord says at the appointed time I will return unto thee, according to the time of life and Sarah shall give birth. One thing I want you to understand is that until this point the lord had not spoken to Sarah. She had not heard the promise from his mouth She had received the promises from Abraham’s mouth. So it was not until she heard the words directly from God that she began to believe. What people don’t realize is that it is our lack of faith that stops many of the blessings in our lives. It is our inability to believe the word of God> So we see that God tells them that at the appointed time he will return and she will give birth.

What you have got to understand is that before Sarah could become the mother of a Nation there was a process that she had to go through. Before she could give blessing to the promise she had to go through some trials and tribulations, she had to make mistakes, she also to grow in her faith of God, and she had to hear the voice of God.

So finally in Genesis 21:1-2 we see that Sarah finally gives birth, After God visited her, she had a baby at her set time. God came to her when he was ready for her to give birth to the promise, not when she wanted to give birth. That is the significant thing about God you can not rush him. He does not move according to our time schedule, but He moves according to his will. What you have got to understand is that before Sarah could become the mother of a Nation there was a process that she had to go through. Before she could give blessing to the promise she had to go through some trials and tribulations, she had to make mistakes, she also to grow in her faith of God, and she had to hear the
