LEARN FROM SARAH
And by faith even Sarah, who was past childbearing age, was enabled to bear children because she considered him faithful who had made the promise.
Hebrews 11:11 NIV
Faith in the Bible is defined as the confident assurance that something we want is going to happen. It is the certainty that what we hope for is waiting for us, even though we cannot see it up ahead, Hebrews 11:1. It then continues in verse 2 by saying: Men of God in days of old were famous for their faith.
We don't see God by our own natural eyes but through the eyes of faith we believe that God exists; and that He is the rewarder of those who seek Him. Sarah had faith in God, when God promised her a son though she was past childbearing age, she believed Him and when time came Sarah bore a son who was named Isaac.
It took the faith of two people Sarah and Abraham for Isaac to be born. God who first promised Abraham and later visited them through three men, and one of them said, “I will surely return to you about this time next year, and Sarah your wife will have a son.”(Genesis 17:17-22, 18:9-14)
This morning, there is something we can learn from our mother Sarah. Many folks in the church want to be prayed for different things; but they don't have the faith of receiving them. They want their Pastors and spiritual leaders to have the whole faith needed for them to get their miracles. They don't pray, fast or read the word of God that they may at least increase their faith.
They get disappointed so easily when they see nothing happens in their lives and their prayers are not answered. Thus they change churches like the way someone can change clothes. They don't like to stay at one place; because they are constantly seeking miracles and blessings in different churches.
I want to ask you to stop running to and fro and start seeking God in that place where God has placed you. It takes your faith and the faith of your Pastor for you to receive your miracles. If you want your Isaac (promise) to be born in your life; then you need to have faith in God for He is the one who can allow your Isaac to be born.
Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer....
Dear Father, I'm asking that You may enable me to have faith in your Name. Help me to stand by my own faith while waiting for my Isaac. Knowing that You are faithful God; and you fulfill your promise to me in due time. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
