Everything We Need

Friday, March 6th – Genesis 18:13-14 (NIV)

Then the Lord said to Abraham, “Why did Sarah laugh and say, ‘Will I really have a child, now that I am old?’ Is anything too hard for the Lord? I will return to you at the appointed time next year, and Sarah will have a son.”
All too often we look at things through our own understanding. We use logic and reason to predict likely outcomes; it’s useful when plotting out traffic patterns to get to work or picking ingredients to make dinner – but be careful about putting God in a box. Who made the universe from nothing? Who breathed life into Adam? The devil likes to use our ‘superior intellect’ to cause us to doubt what God is capable – or willing, to do. Notice that God didn’t get angry with Sarah and punish her for her doubt; he reaffirmed His promise.
Lord, forgive us for our doubt of your abilities. Cause us to walk boldly with the faith that you keep your promises and delight in our faithfulness. Open our eyes to see the miracles all around us today.
