Scripture: Genesis 18:10
Then one of them said, ‘I will surely return to you about this time next year, and Sarah your wife will have a son.’”
Sarah was past the age of childbearing and had never given birth before, even though she had tried for years. But notice what God says: It will surely happen.
But a woman as old as Sarah doesn’t normally have children! God is not limited by what normally is.
But these two have tried for years, and it hasn’t worked! God has never tried to make it happen; only they have.
But Sarah’s body is obviously incapable of carrying children. Being God, He is above and in control of everything. Sometimes, He acts and does what doesn't seem possible. Sometimes, He acts on nature to make it do something that it normally wouldn’t. He is God and is not bound by the rules or conditions currently in place. Nothing can stand in the way of His will.
What situation are you facing in your life that seems impossible to overcome? What do you hope for that doesn’t seem like it could ever happen?
Listen for God’s word on the matter. If He says it will happen, it surely will.
