Email from Cana 90 – Day 28
ROTFL: Roll On The Floor Laughing
Abraham fell face down and laughed as he said to himself, “Can a child be born to a man who is a hundred years old? Can Sarah give birth at ninety?” ~ Genesis 17:17
God has just told Abraham that Sarah will bear him a Son, an heir who will carry on the covenant the Lord made with him. Abraham’s response is less than grateful. Granted, at age 100 and with Sarah being 90, the Lord’s promise from earlier in Genesis 15:5 “Look up at the sky and count the stars, if you can. Just so, he added, will your descendants be” seems a bit far fetched.
….Yet, we know the Lord delivers, literally and figuratively.
- What is your gut reaction when you reflect back on what you expected marriage and family life would be like?
- What has the Lord promised you in your marriage? Do you still trust Him? Why or why not?
- Talk to the Lord about this. If you don’t trust go to Him and have that conversation with him. (hint: He already knows you are struggling…so it’s really more for your sake than His.)
