Sarah’s Laughter

on October 11, 2013

My bible study discussion this week was about Sarah and her laughter. Genesis 18 and Genesis 21:1-7.

When Sarah, Abraham’s wife overheard three visitors from God tell Abraham that she would become pregnant at her old age, she laughed to herself. Sarah had struggled with infertility for so long that she couldn’t believe that her struggles would finally lift. Sarah had some doubts, but when God kept his promise and gave them a son, she eventually grew in faith and trusted God. In the end, she laughed a laugh of joy.

When Sarah laughed with doubt, God heard that inner laugh. Remember that God hears us, even our little thoughts and doubts… And yet even when we have human doubts, God sees our potential and continues to bless us.

Sometimes we get stuck in our trials that we can’t see out of it. We become negative. Remember there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Most importantly, remember that God can do the impossible.

Seeing the difference between human effort and God’s power is amazing. Like Sarah, we are weak. But God can take the impossible and make it beautifully possible. He is shaping our lives into something good. God can transform us, sometimes using the trials of life to do so.

Remember there are three stages in the work of God: impossible, difficult, done. (James Hudson Taylor)

Let God turn your laugh of doubt into a laugh of joy and faith!
