What you give your attention to the most is what will eventually govern your life. If you pay attention to the lesser, then mediocrity becomes inevitable, but if you pay attention or reverence God’spromise – His Word, consequently, absolute victory will dominate every realm of your life. Beloved, this is the truth, and I pray to God we embrace God’s truth, for the Bible says, “Sanctify them by the truth; Your Word is truth.” Read John 17:17 (NIV). Look at this little formula: TRUTH = THE WORD.
“Abraham didn’t focus on his own impotence and say, “It’s hopeless. This hundred-year-old body could never father a child.” Nor did he survey Sarah’s decades of infertility and give up. He didn’t tiptoe around God’s promise asking cautiously skeptical questions. He plunged into the promise and came up strong, ready for God, sure that God would make good on what He had said.” Read Romans 4:19-21 (MSG). Now let us juice this text together.
- Abraham did not allow himself to focus on the problem, because if he had, that would have affected his speech causing him to say words not consistent with God’s promises.
- Abraham did not believe neither did he embrace Sarah’s condition of infertility. He was absolutely convinced and persuaded that what God said will be.
- Abraham was not unbelieving, he was bold about his convictions.
- Abraham was all into God’s promise without any reservations; he was fully committed to seeing God’s Word manifest in his and Sarah’s life.
The outcome of Abraham honouring God’s Word above all else, “The Lord kept His Word and did for Sarah exactly what He had promised. She became pregnant, and she gave birth to a son for Abraham in his old age. This happened at just the time God had said it would.” Read Genesis 21:2 (NLT).
And what did Sarah do? Oh, watch this, she praised God. The Bible says, and Sarah declared, “God has brought me laughter. All who hear about this will laugh with me.” Read Genesis 21:6 (NLT).
I declare this is a time of your visitation, the Lord will cause you to laugh, and many will rejoice with you over what the Lord has done in your life in the Name of Jesus. “Joy unspeakable and full of glory.” Unprecedented laughter…
