Then, as they cried out and tore off their clothes and threw dust into the air, Acts 22:23 Continue reading
But I have a few things against you, because you have there those who hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balak to put a stumbling block before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed to idols, and to commit sexual immorality. Rev 2:14 Continue reading
Have you ever made a mistake?
Of course you have; many you couldn’t undo or change.
Don’t feel alone. The Bible is full of men and women that made mistakes – some minor and some really major.
In the case of Abram and Sarai, they had no children but a promise from God that their descendants would be like the stars of the heavens.
But maybe they figured their problem was bigger than their God. So she took matters into her own hands.
Gen 16:2 So Sarai said to Abram, “See now, the Lord has restrained me from bearing children. Please, go in to my maid; perhaps I shall obtain children by her.” And Abram heeded the voice of Sarai.
If God is restraining you it’s either because He doesn’t want you to have it or it isn’t the right timing for it.
In this case it is the latter, this wasn’t the right time for Abram and Sarai to have a child. That day is coming but it is not today.
God’s delay is not a weakness. Patience in waiting on God is a virtue that you can ill-afford to tamper with.
God’s promises don’t need your help. God has been running the universe just fine without you winding up the mechanism. Let Him do what He does best.
God’s plans will be fulfilled. Every promise made will come to pass. If the Bible says it, you can believe it will happen.
Never believe your problems are bigger than God can handle. If you think you can do a better job than God then your ego may be bigger than God can handle!
Abba Father, help e leave the ego behind, wait, and depend on You! In Jesus name, YES&AMEN
