What if God gave us a promise like he gave Abraham? God told Abram that he would make his descendants like the sand. At the time, Abram and his wife Sarai had no children. Abram did not laugh at God, but look how long it took for this to occur, generations. Look at Numbers 1. There were 603,550 men the age of 20 and older. Thank God for your promises. We are impatient people Abram and Sarai were past childbearing age (okay she did laugh). In Genesis 17, God sealed the promise and they became Abraham and Sarah. That thing God promised you, maybe you have to wait just a bit longer, maybe it won’t happen in your lifetime. But rest assured it will happen for you just as it did for Abram.
