“By faith Abraham’s wife Sarah became fertile long after menopause because she believed God would be faithful to His promise. So from this man, who was almost at death’s door, God brought forth descendants, as many as the stars in the sky and as impossible to count as the sands of the shore.” Hebrews 11:11-12 TV

The odds were stacked against her to have a child, and the 90 year old Abraham for that matter, but Sarah had faith that God could do it. She also had faith that He would do it given His promise and she knew God always does what He promises, but it’s also worth noting that her first response was to laugh at God (Gen 18). The great people in the Bible were just that, people like us, and even they had their moments of unbelief. And yet many of them, after their first reaction, chose to believe in God’s ability and desire to provide for them. 

Maybe you’re in a situation where the odds are against you. Maybe you have a recurring sin that seems impossible to break. Maybe you mom or dad or good friend are not Christians, and it seems unlikely things will change. 

Push beyond your initial reaction of disbelief, and learn to trust in the One who is more than able to do it. 

How is your faith right now? Are you able to push beyond what you can see, and trust in the One, who you cannot see, to come through?
