The Promise:
Is anything impossible for the LORD? At the appointed time I will come back to you, and in about a year she will have a son.” Genesis 18:14

“But My covenant I will establish with Isaac, whom Sarah will bear to you at this season next year.”Genesis 17:21

Genesis 18
Sarah Laughs at the Promise
…13And the LORD said to Abraham, “Why did Sarah laugh, saying, ‘Shall I indeed bear a child, when I am so old?’ 14“Is anything too difficult for the LORD? At the appointed time I will return to you, at this time next year, and Sarah will have a son.”15Sarah denied it however, saying, “I did not laugh”; for she was afraid. And He said, “No, but you did laugh.”…
Wisdom Shared: In our greatest time of need in our distresses, in our sorrows we become disillusioned about tomorrow.  We lose sight on the promise because it has not occurred in our timing.  But remember Beloved, Nothing is impossible for the Lord.  And God;s timing is always perfect.  For the beauty of the word inspires to wait patiently for the Lord.  Trust, commit, and delight in Him and he will fulfill the desires of your heart.  Write his word on the tablet of your heart … pray with complete confidence that what you are asking will be done according to God’s will and purpose. Because as the word states; this is impossible with man; but with God all things are possible. Matthew 19:26
Mercy, peace and love be yours in abundance,

In Jesus Christ we pray… Amen!

God’s Word – “For you will go out with joy And be led forth with peace; The mountains and the hills will break forth into shouts of joy before you, And all the trees of the fieldwill clap their hands.” NASB

Encouragement Shared:
The Bible states; God will make known to us the path of life; In HIS Majestic presence is fullness of joy; In HIS right hand there are pleasures forever. [Psalm 16:11] Yes, beloved in the joy of his presence we are to give our love and thanksgiving to Him. In the midst of our troubles he preserves our life, through giving us a future and hope. Our God is the God of eternal hope in all circumstances of life. There is no other hope than glory of his presence in our life, going before us showing us the path of life that is joy, that is also great peace. Beloved it is through that great joy and peace through the word that enables us to move forth in his strength.
Beloved set your minds on things above, and do not lean on your own understanding. God’s plans are always best, so as long as you remain in HIM it through the promises of the word we can rest. Do not dwell on the past, move forward and know like you know your name… There is a strong tower and it is Christ in us. Just call to Jesus, Jesus, Jesus and the word of promise states he answers us when we call. The Bible states: “He will call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will rescue him and honor him. Psalm 91:15
Mercy, peace and love be yours in abundance,
In Christ Love,
