Consider It Not!

Abraham decided that what God had told him (the Word given to him) WOULD come to past. The Word says that he did not doubt, he did not weaken in what he believed God for. He did not weaken in what God had promised even when he was thinking about his body or Sarah’s body! Think about that, when it was time for them to by faith become intimate with each other, they had to come together in faith, for his body was “impotent” and hers was “barren!” The very intimate acts that would able them to even conceive a child had to be done by faith! And do not forget that Abraham was about a hundred years old, and this promise that God gave them did not just become evident over night. It was YEARS LATER before Isaac was born! How many nights did they have to BY FAITH come together and believe God for their very BODIES TO WORK! And to add to this whole faith journey that Abraham and Sarah had to walk, Sarah HAD NEVER CONCEIVED BEFORE!
