Abraham and his wife, Sarah, worshiped God. God told them to leave their home and move to a new land. Abraham and Sarah obeyed
God. Abraham and Sarah liked their new home, but they were sad. Why? Because they did not have any children.
God spoke to Abraham and told him he would have a son. Abraham and Sarah waited and waited. Finally, Abraham and Sarah had a son. Genesis 21:5-7 tells us about Isaac’s birth. “Abraham was 100 years old when his son, Isaac, was born. Sarah said, ‘God has made me happy, and everyone who hears about this will be happy with me. No one thought that I, Sarah, would be able to have Abraham’s child. But I have given Abraham a son, even though he is old.’”
Wow! Abraham was 100 years old and Sarah was 90 years old when Isaac was born. Everything happened just as God had promised. This was
a special blessing from God. It could only have happened through God’s great power.
God always keeps His promises. When God says something will happen, it will happen. You can read God’s many promises in the Bible. We cannot always depend on promises that people make. But we can always depend on God!
