WHAT IF GOD HAD NOT MADE ABRAHAM AND HIS WIFE WAIT A LONG TIME FOR A CHILD?

            Sometimes the Almighty does things in very perplexing ways, even with His very special servants.  In Genesis 17, He promised Abraham an offspring through whom he would become the “father of many nations” (V. 5). Yet much time went by and no child was conceived. Finally, God kept His promise when Abraham and Sarah had grown very old and were physically unable to have children (Genesis: 18: 12).

           What if God had kept His promise while both Abraham and Sarah were young? What if He had not made them wait into their old age and had granted their wish much sooner when Sarah was of child-bearing age? 

            Throughout the Bible, God makes it quite evident that He is the Omnipotent God. If He had allowed Sarah to become pregnant while fully able to bear children, the conception would have been both natural and uneventful. Because of Sarah’s old age, Isaac’s birth would not have occurred, unless God had intervened. But God wanted all to know that Isaac’s birth was very special and, therefore, He made it a miraculous event.

            Isaac’s birth was meant to give Abraham undeniable evidence that the God he worshipped was, indeed, the supreme God. God also wanted future generations to understand that He is the Almighty, the God of the impossible (Genesis: 18:14). Also, because in Isaac all nations would be blessed (Genesis 17:19, 18:18), God wanted all to realize that He would be miraculously involved with Isaac and his descendents to the end of times.

            God promised a child to Abraham and Sarah and made them wait decades until the possibility of bearing children had become impossible. When all seemed hopeless God intervened and made it evident that nothing was impossible for Him and that, as He was miraculously involved with Isaac from the start to the end of his life, He would have continued to be involved with his offspring to the end of times.
