I have been thinking a lot lately, about the faith of Sarah. We hear so much about
the faith of Abraham. He was a great man of faith, the father of many nations. It's
true, and it's true that Sarah gets a mention in Hebrews 11:11. But have you ever
really stopped and thought about the kind of woman she was. She must have possessed
immense strength. She went on a great journey with her husband to an unknown land.
She was placed in the harem of a foreign king (not your finest hour Abe!) She struggled
with infertility for decades, and still had faith for a child of her own. Abraham
gets most of the credit for that one, but she was there, definitely participating.
She carried and birthed a child when she was 90 years old! I've had 3 and it was
no picnic, so I cannot imagine the strength it took physically and emotionally for
her to do that. Her faith produced a miracle that would one day become an entire
nation. That is some kind of amazing legacy.
We are pregnant with purpose, destiny and future.
You and I are called to be like Sarah. We are pregnant with purpose, destiny and
future. We give birth to ideas, creativity, and solutions to problems. We are strong,
intelligent and capable. We nurture, guard and protect life and family. When things
get hard, and it seems like the answer isn't coming, we press on. We refuse to quit
because we know that the God of heaven and earth resides in us, and He is faithful
to do what He has promised.
