God care about us even when we don’t think He does, His interest in us never fades.
When othersforget about you God does not. Just like Sarah when she was barren, her desire was to bare a child. Many of her young years passed where she could not conceive. But God did promise her and Abraham that they would be blessed with a son. She heard the Lord’s promise and the timeline He gave.Sarah got to a point where she became impatient deciding to take matters in her own hands. Just likewe do sometimes when we think much time has passed without any results. She decided to hand her husband Abraham another woman. How difficult that decision had to have been for her. Desperate, she had truly become in making such a decision that would later haunt her. Sometimes, we do forget the promises God makes when we stop walking by faith and start walking by sight. There will be times in our lives when we don’t like what we see, hear, smell or taste. These are times when we must fight the good fight of faith and know that God is still on His throne, hears our prayers and that He is not a man that He should lie. Numbers 23:19
In the Book of Genesis chapter 18 verses 9 through 14 we see God promised Abraham and Sarah theywould have a son. We must believe God when it seems that all odds are against us. God came through for Sarah in her later years when it was not possible for her to even be fertile, nor for Abraham to be her delight. But, as the scripture says, Is anything impossible for the Lord? Genesis 18:14. Absolutely, NOT. Today,we read about the promised son Isaac who was born to Abraham and Sarah in Genesis chapter 21 verses 1 through 6. This child brought joy and hope to both parents. What wonderful results we can get in trusting God and His promises.
God does not need to remember His promises to us because He doesn’t forget them, we do. Let us ask the Holy Spirit to bring all the promises we’ve read in God’s word to our remembrance. Let us also putan effort forth to write them down to be memorized. Let us allow ourselves to become established inGod’s word so that we do not give up. Know our Heavenly Father will not fail us, He will come through for you as He did Sarah. Let us hold on to the confession of our hope without wavering, since He whopromised is faithful. Hebrews 10:23
