Genesis 21:1-7 New Living Translation (NLT)
God is all-powerful and he can stretch the limits and cause unheard of events to occur. The rhema (uttered/spoken) word of the Lord came to Abram announcing he and Sarai would be having a child in their old age. They had to believe by faith that God would fulfill his promise no matter how challenging the circumstances. God delivered His promise into their arms. So, by faith put your trust in God, because he is able to do exceedingly, abundantly, above all you could ask or think according to the power that works in us (Ephesians 3:20).
Genesis 21:1-7 The Birth of Isaac
21 The Lord kept his word and did for Sarah exactly what he had promised. 2 She became pregnant, and she gave birth to a son for Abraham in his old age. This happened at just the time God had said it would. 3 And Abraham named their son Isaac.
4 Eight days after Isaac was born, Abraham circumcised him as God had commanded.
5 Abraham was 100 years old when Isaac was born.
6 And Sarah declared, “God has brought me laughter. All who hear about this will laugh with me. 7 Who would have said to Abraham that Sarah would nurse a baby? Yet I have given Abraham a son in his old age!”
Prayer: Lord, thank you for stretching the limits of what I can comprehend. Continue to bring your rhema word to my heart and help me believe in your grand plans for my life. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
