Gen21.1; And the Lord visited Sarah as He had said, and the Lord did for Sarah as He had spoken.
Whatever the Lord says concerning U,be rest assured that whatever He says He will do. He is not a man that shd lie nor the son of man that will repent ot wat He has said. He is God and He is committed to His word.
Gen 21:5-6.nkjv Now Abraham was one hundred years old when his son Isaac was born to him. And Sarah said, “God has made me laugh, and all who hear will laugh with me.”
It doesn’t matter how long the promise may take,it will surely come to pass. The Bible says,”Thou it tarries,wait for it”. And at the time of the fulfillment,u will laugh and rejoice at the faithfulness of God. And people will also rejoice wit U.
Gen21.13.nkjv Yet I will also make a nation of the son of the bondwoman, because he is your seed.” In as much as Ishmael was not God’s plan for Abraham but becos he is Abraham’s seed God blessed him.
This goes to show that God is mindful of everyone. Never look down on anyone cos your Father doesn’t do dat.
The beauty of Gen 22 is knowing whom you serve and what He is able to do. When God told Abraham to offer his son,God knows that Abraham will never withhold anything from him but needed to prove it to us as a testimony of the depth of their relationship.
And Abraham also knows that God doesn’t need Isaac cos He believed the word God spoke “that in Isaac shall ur seed be counted” and Abraham knows that even if he offered Isaac,God is able to bring him back to life because God’s word must come to pass.
The lesson in ds chapter is that “there should be nothing in our life that should be too much to give up for our God”. All that we av is from Him in the first place.
And God blessed Abraham exceedingly because Abraham did not disappoint him. God knows of a truth that Abraham is His friend.
Are u a friend of God? Can u give up everything for Him? Can God vouch for your loyalty to Him? Can God authoritatively say that You are His friend?
