Day 7: Son of Laughter

Read: Jesus Storybook Bible 56-61 or Genesis 12:1-3; 15:1-6; 18:10-15; and 21:1-7 Think: Abraham and Sarah waited a long time to see God’s promises come to fulfillment. Not a few days, weeks, or years…but often decades! In this season of waiting, it is easy to doubt that God is going to make good on his promises. No one would have thought that a couple as old as Abraham and Sarah could have a child, but as we see throughout the Bible, God does the unexpected and turns the world on its head to accomplish his plan of redemption through Jesus. How has God done the unexpected in your life? How has he made a way where you thought there was no way? Take time to celebrate God’s faithfulness to his promises. Pray: For a thankful heart and eyes to see the faithfulness of God in the everyday mercies.
