Genesis 21:2 reads “For Sarah conceived, and bare Abraham a son in his old age, at the set time of which God had spoken to him.” This verse not only speak about the miracle working nature of God but also gives us insight into his timely nature. He took Sarah, someone who was barren and miraculously made her fruitful, at a time that he set for Abraham and Sarah.
Points to ponder:
As men and women, we may toil extremely hard to be fruitful – in our personal and our professional lives. Yet, it is only God who can make us fruitful and when he does it is in his set time, not ours – which makes it the best time that it can be. Look to the Lord with eyes of faith, for even out of the barrenness of our lives, he can make things fruitful, when he deems it is time.
Genesis 21:2 (KJV)
2 For Sarah conceived, and bare Abraham a son in his old age, at the set time of which God had spoken to him.
