I just have two amazing songs to bless your spirit today. The first song is by David Dunn called Grace Will Lead Me Home.
The last song I also have for you is by Lincoln Brewster called While I Wait. I feel that the last song really ministered to me because how many of you can’t stand waiting for something that is promised to you to come? Whether it be a promotion, a job, a spouse, or hoping to have children or birth a business, etc etc…. God knows what the desires we have in our hearts are before we even ask Him, but that doesn’t mean as people, we may not be impatient to receiving these promises and take things into our own hands. Remember in the Book of Genesis when Moses and Sarah where waiting to birth Isaac, the child of promise, but then Sarah got impatient and felt like God had forgotten her and had suggested that her husband (Moses) lie with her servant Hagar to birth him a son to continue Moses’ genealogy? The idea seemed to make human sense to Sarah, but God new that there would be implications to such a suggestion unbeknown-st to Sarah. Unfortunately, Sarah was desperate and discouraged that she didn’t think this suggestion would affect her marriage in any way… Unfortunately, as you read on…you will see how much strife brewed after agreeing to do things Sarah’s way rather than waiting on God’s way to fulfill a promise.
Sarah’s servant Hagar did inevitably birth a son to Moses and named him Ishmael Genesis 16 , however, Sarah’s impatience and inability to trust God caused her to make this life changing mistake. Because Hagar was able to produce a son for Moses, Hagar used Sarah’s insecurities as a woman to taunt Sarah and make fun of her for her presumed infertility. Hagar simply assumed that Sarah would never be able to give birth to a child for Moses despite being his wife considering that Sarah was beyond child-bearing years to do so. HOWEVER, but God PEOPLE! BUT GOD!!!!!
Isaac Is Born
21 And the Lord visited Sarah as He had said, and the Lord did for Sarah as He had spoken. 2 For Sarah conceived and bore Abraham a son in his old age, at the set time of which God had spoken to him. 3 And Abraham called the name of his son who was born to him—whom Sarah bore to him—Isaac.[a] 4 Then Abraham circumcised his son Isaac when he was eight days old, as God had commanded him. 5 Now Abraham was one hundred years old when his son Isaac was born to him. 6 And Sarah said, “God has [b]made me laugh, and all who hear will laugh with me.” 7 She also said, “Who would have said to Abraham that Sarah would nurse children? For I have borne him a son in his old age.”
God showed Hagar and Sarah that He is a God that is able to pull what seemed to be impossible and make it possible to those that BELIEVE. Sarah did give birth to Isaac as promised and this caused strife and enmity between her and Hagar. As a result of this strife, Hagar was then told by Moses to leave them as a result. In thinking about the end result of Sarah’s impatience and unbelief, what can you learn about this based on her situation? In reference to Hagar who taunted Sarah mercilessly, there’s this saying that goes, He who laughs first, laughs last. Just because people around you don’t see where it is that you are going, and poke fun at you based on how they see right now, doesn’t mean that what they say trumps what God will actually do for you if you put your complete TRUST IN THE LORD.
But Jesus looked at them and said to them, “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
Jesus said to him, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.”
But Jesus looked at them and said, “With men it is impossible, but not with God; for with God all things are possible.”
And He said, “Abba, Father, all things are possible for You. Take this cup away from Me; nevertheless, not what I will, but what You will.
Although I used the birth of a child as an example, it is applicable to you in different aspects of your life. Like I said, it could apply to those who are waiting to birth a business idea, a child, or waiting for the right relationships to enter into your life to take you to where you ought to go in your destiny.
My message to you is that God hasn’t forgotten you even if you feel like you’ve been abandoned, forsaken, and waiting for a long time for a breakthrough. God is with you every step you take in your journey. While you wait, Trust in God and Worship Him as the song by Lincoln Brewster emphasizes. God is Faithful everyday, so just know that every promise God has for you, He is the One Who is sure to bring everything that He has for you to completion. So in the mean time, what do you do while waiting? The answer is simple….continue to Worship Him (GOD) Everyday. Worship God in Spirit and in Truth and God will definitely answer you in His Divine Timing. The question is, are you willing to Worship God while waiting? Think about that today as you listen to this song. God Bless You Everybody!
