Genesis 21:1 ” Now the Lord was gracious to Sarah as He said, and the Lord did for Sarah what He had promised.”

How long have you waited on the Lord for a prayer of yours to be answered? A month, a year, a decade? It can finally get to the point that we think God has forgotten us and our request is just being ignored. But Abraham and Sarah waited 25 years for the promise of a son to be fulfilled. By then, Sarah was 99 years old and well beyond childbearing age. But it says here that God was gracious to her, miraculously enabling Sarah to conceive. God always does what He says He will do, and accomplishes every promise He has made. Our job is to wait, patiently trusting in His Word…for He is faithful to all He has promised. Or as Joshua 21:45 tells us, ” Not one of all the Lord’s good promises failed; every one was fulfilled.”
