LAUGHING AT IMPOSSIBILITIES
And Sarah said, God hath made me to laugh, so that all that hear will laugh with me. (Genesis 21:6)
“Faith laughs at impossibilities.” – Smith Wigglesworth
In Genesis 21, we read about Abraham and Sarah receiving a promise from God. They were old and well stricken in age but God promised them a son in order to establish His eternal covenant. God told Abraham that He was going to bless Sarah. He said, “I will bless her, and she shall be a mother of nations; kings of people shall be of her.” (Genesis 17:16)
“Through faith also Sarah herself received strength to conceive seed, and was delivered of a child when she was past age, because she judged him faithful who had promised.” (Hebrews 11:11)
How did Sarah receive strength to conceive? She laughed and received strength for her miracle. She judged Him faithful that promised. She knew that what God had promised He was able to perform. Through faith, she received strength. She said, “God made me laugh.”
Confession: I laugh at the circumstances in my life that seem impossible because I judge Him faithful who has promised. Ha! Ha! Ha!
