“Sir, my concern is not whether God is on our side; my greatest concern is to be on God's side, for God is always right.” -Abraham Lincoln
Abraham and Sarah prayed for a son for 99 years, yet when an angel appeared to Abraham and said that Sarah would have a son, she doubted God’s promise by laughing and saying, “I’m too old” (Gen. 18:12). Before you get too disappointed with Sarah, I ask you how often you doubt God’s promise for your life. The Scripture says that in God’s presence there is fullness of joy, yet you may doubt this because you rarely if ever feel happy. You know that God’s Word says that you’re forgiven, but you often doubt this because you wrestle with guilt. You know that God’s plans are to prosper you, but you doubt this because you’re still paying back student loan debt. Whatever your situation may be, I encourage you to hold on close to God’s promises found in His Word. Spoiler alert: Sarah had the baby. Like Sarah we have to do all that we can in the natural while trusting God to then do the supernatural.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding (Proverbs 3:5, NASB).
