Genesis 18:1-15: Lord & 2 men visit Abraham

v.1-8, During the hottest part of the day and Abraham looked up he saw 3 men (one of which was the Lord) standing nearby him, he ran to them bowed before them. He asked them to stop and rest, he could wash their feet and feed them and then they could be on their way. Abraham hurried into the tent and told Sarah to hurry up and make bread (out of 3 of the best flour). Then he ran to get a calf to prepare for the 3 visitors. He set everything before the men and stood there under the Great tree of Mamre while they ate.

v.9-15, The men asked where Sarah was and of course Abraham told them she was in the tent. Then the Lord he will return this time next year and Sarah will have a son. Sarah was listening at the tent’s entrance behind the men. Sarah was past the age of child bearing and Abraham was very old as well. So Sarah LAUGHED when she heard she was going to have a son especially with an old guy like Abraham! Then the Lord asked Abraham why Sarah laughed? “Is there anything too hard for God?” Then the Lord said again that Sarah will have a son this time next year. Sarah denied she laughed because she was afraid. But the Lord said “yes you did.”

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN TO ME? Simply we need to trust God when he says he is going to do something, especially if he tells me over and over again. Like he did about their son Issac. Also don’t doubt God either!

WHAT AM I GOING TO DO ABOUT IT? I need to continue to ask — pray! And then listen. In the past I have gone through doors that seemed open but this time I am going to do less DOING and more LISTENING!

God, please help me to wait on you and listen
