By Faith – Part 5
A laughable promise
Text: Hebrews 11:11-12
As stated in Hebrews 11:11 “Through faith also Sarah herself received strength to conceive seed, and was delivered of a child when she was past age…”
According to this statement, we can deduce that Sarah (Abraham’s wife) was:
Too old to conceive
In another account Genesis 18: 1-15 narrates the conversation between Abraham and three men who were actually angels sent by God, a dialogue that his wife secretly listened to. Having heard the content of their discussion “…Sarah laughed within herself…” Genesis 18: 12
But what triggered this reaction? These angelic beings gave Abraham a ridiculous promise from the Lord “…thy wife shall have a son…”Genesis 18: 10
Subsequently, her husband who previously doubted now believed that God would honour His word, moreover something significant also happened to Sarah when she considered who it was that gave the promise; her doubting heart was changed and was now filled with faith and belief “…because she judged Him faithful who had promised”. Hebrews 11: 11
Despite the many years of disappointment, despite the fact that nature and logic proved that they were too old to conceive, this great woman believed the Lord and her cynicism was turned into laughter and joy when she held Isaac (their son).
Has God given you a promise which seems laughable in magnitude? Hold unto it by faith and rest assured knowing that His word to you shall surely come to pass because He is faithful.
Romans 10: 17 says “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God” As you hear God’s word may your faith be increased.

Where Jesus Christ Is Lord
In the book of Hebrews 11:1 we read these words “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen”.
The word used for faith here means, a foundation, assurance, title-deeds, in reality when we talk about faith in God if we really have it, it becomes all the proof we need, verse 3 tells us, “Through faith we understand…” this suggest that without faith we cannot understand the things and ways of God.
Here at Faith Dimensions Ministries we encourage our members to believe and walk by faith in our never failing God.
We believe in the ability of the word of God to save, heal and deliver through the power of the Holy Spirit and because we love our Lord and saviour Jesus Christ we cannot cease to praise His name.
