“The Lord took note of Sarah as He had said He would; He did for her as He had promised. Sarah became pregnant and bore Abraham a son in his old age, at the set time that God had stated.” —Genesis 21:1-2

God was with Abraham in everything he did. At the age of a hundred, Abraham finally fathered a child with his wife Sarah. Even Ishmael, Abraham’s son by Sarah’s maidservant, was to be the first of a great nation. Abimelech, king of Gerar, could see that Abraham couldn’t lose so he made an alliance with him.

Prayer: Father, thank You for fulfilling every promise You’ve ever made (Jos 23:14). Increase my faith (Lk 17:5).
Promise: “Don’t be afraid; God has heard the boy’s cry in this plight of his. Arise, lift up the boy and hold him by the hand; for I will make of him a great nation.” —21:17-18
