Worth The Wait

Women Wait For A Abraham:

  1. He hoped against a hopeless situation. What we know for sure is that it was not him with the fertility problem. What we also know for sure is back in those times before following God they were mixed in a culture where they worshipped many gods. When a woman did not produce children she was considered cursed and men would often put them away in divorce.
  2. Abraham was faithful: Because we know that it wasn’t Abraham with the problem it only leaves us to assume he remained faithful and prayerful for things to change for his wife. He might of prayed to every god before encountering the one true living God but he prayed until something shifted. We know for sure he didn’t take another woman in the bed until instructed to by his wife in an attempt to please her and not to please himself. He didn’t take another wife until the death of Sarah and he went on to have more children.
  3. Abraham was not swayed: The culture would have had a great affect on the marriage. Such as shame, created pressure, it would have been stigmatized, and perhaps he would have been considered weak as a man for staying. Even in all of this Abraham was not swayed to step out of his vows, character, integrity, and his love for Sarah.

Women please when dating make sure you take your time and get to know the backstory of the man. You are not desperate and you do not have to settle for a man who is unhealed, uncertain of what he wants or who he is even after several failed marriages and/or relationships, has eyes for every woman they see, or has no godly character or integrity. Don’t you dare settle! There are men who hold the character and integrity of Abraham in his love and faithfulness for Sarah. Wait on God because it will be worth the wait.

Let’s Be Truthful

Many Christian’s have been conditioned to believe that trials and opposition comes right before God is getting ready to bless. But, may I offer this to you. God will allow trials and opposition to blow our way to get our attention as well. He uses them to correct us, humble us, and to cause us to repent.

The only outcome is forgiveness and restoration. I would rather be forgiving and restored than die and hear, “depart from me you worker of iniquity,” because I refused to admit, it’s me. Our hearts will deceive us but it’s the Word that will decipher our true motives and reveal our sins.

We are not always right nor or we always a victim. We hurt sometimes off of our own disobedience to God. It’s not everybody, it’s you. All suffering is not for Christ sake but it’s because of our own decisions to sin. Sometimes we must mourn over the fact that we disobeyed God and jumped the fence and played with the enemy. Truth hurts but it will set us free.
