It was by faith that even Sarah was able to have a child, though she was barren and was too old. She believed that God would keep his promise. And so a whole nation came from this one man who was as good as dead-a nation with so many people that, like the stars in the sky and the sand on the seashore, there is no way to count them.Hebrews 11:11-12
By Her Faith
Abraham was not the only one who was faithful. Hebrews also mentions his wife Sarah as a person of faith. There were many men mentioned in this chapter, but not as many women. That is what makes Sarah so special. She and Abraham had taken things into their own hands when they thought they couldn’t have children. They tried it their way and were ready to try it God’s way. She was in her old age and barren, yet God promised them an entire nation that would come from their line. Sarah believed it would happen and it did. Not only that, but these verses say that they would number the stars in the sky and the sand on the shore! There would be so many that no one could count them!
It is just like God to turn an impossible situation into a possible one. He loves to prove that He is able and trustworthy!
A Prayer to Remember
You are so trustworthy. Just like you made the impossible possible for Abraham and Sarah, you are still wowing us today. May I always believe in your miracles. Amen.
