Good Afternoon !
So I have a few verses to share with you which I gathered up while I was reading the Bible last night. In Genesis 18:14 it says “Is anything too hard for the Lord ? At the appointed time I will return to you, according to the time of life, and Sarah shall have a son.” This verse came after God had told Abraham that one day in his old age he shall have a son, and his descendants were going to be as many as the stars. It’s clear that God is giving Abraham a prophecy. If God says it, he will do it. He does not need your help. In Genesis 16 Sarai convinced Abraham to “know” her maid Hagar. Hagar then conceived a son named Ishamael. The problem with this is that when God had spoken to Abraham, he said that Sarai shall give birth to a son, not Hagar. In this way they tried to help God fulfill what he had prophesied to them.
Brothers and sisters have you ever received a word from the Lord and because it hasn’t been fulfilled the way you imagined it you have tried to ‘help God out’ ? I’m sure you have, we have all been in that situation. Please understand that God does things in his own time and in the way that he wants them to. Keep believing, keep trusting, keep hoping, stand in faith and believe God is doing what he said he would do.
