Abraham fell facedown; he laughed and said to himself, “Will a son be born to a man a hundred years old? Will Sarah bear a child at the age of ninety?
When God told Abraham that he and Sarah were going to finally have a baby, he fell facedown and laughed. Both of them were long past the age of producing a child. Sometimes God puts promises in our heart that are so big, so out of the ordinary, that all we can do is laugh. But God had not miscalculated. He had everything strategically planned down to the smallest detail. God waited purposefully for the odds to be against them.
Perhaps you have things that you’re believing for—dreams to come to pass, problems to turn around. You’ve been praying, standing in faith, but nothing is happening and it seems too late. Many times God waits on purpose until the obstacle is too big, so when He turns it around there won’t be any doubt that it was His favor, His healing, His power that’s making a way where there was no way. Don’t be discouraged when it seems too late—you’re in prime position for God to show out in your life.
Prayer for Today
Father, thank You that I am not limited by my circumstances. Thank You that what looks as though it’s too late is not a problem for You. I believe that when You work out the supernatural plans You have for me that no one will doubt it was You. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
