The words of Sarah when Isaac was born is “God hath made me to laugh, so that all that hear will laugh with me.” as she wondered as to how impractical and impossible, the miracle of child birth was for her and her husband, because of their old age (Genesis 21:6-7). God takes her barrenness away and replaces it with blessedness (laughter) – but if you notice Sarah’s declaration, it is not only she who is the recipient of such joy and laughter, but all who hear of God’s goodness and greatness in her life, will also be able to join with her and rejoice, glorifying God.
Points to ponder:
God can take away the barrenness from our lives and make us to laugh, but when he does, let us recognize that God gives us laughter so that others who hear of God’s goodness and greatness in our lives, can also rejoice with us and give him the glory.
Genesis 21:6-7 (KJV)
6 And Sarah said, God hath made me to laugh, so that all that hear will laugh with me.
7 And she said, Who would have said unto Abraham, that Sarah should have given children suck? for I have born him a son in his old age.
