Sarai (now Sarah) thought she would never have children. She just had to wait a long fourteen years for this to happen. The miracle happened when it was impossible on her own terms; she had given up on her dream. Sarah had learned that God was in control, and it was a blessing.
Questions for further thought:
1. Did you have a dream that was never fulfilled and seems impossible now?
2. Can you fathom how God would fulfill this dream? What faith on your part would it take?
Challenge: Think about a large dream that seems impossible. What steps of faith would it take to fulfill that dream? What actions can you take, and what actions would you need to leave up to God?
