It was by faith that even Sarah was able to have a child, though she was barren and was too old. She believed that God would keep His promise.
Hebrews 11:11, NLT
God Keeps His Promises
How do you continue to believe God for the breakthrough that you need when you don’t feel that you have the faith to go on?
My friend, the answer lies in today’s scripture. Sarah was “barren and was too old” to have a child, but “by faith” she received strength to conceive and gave birth to Isaac. Her faith was involved. How did Sarah exercise her faith to receive her miracle? She simply “believed that God would keep His promise.” In other words, she banked on the faithfulness of God. Her eyes were not on her faith or lack of it, nor were they on how tough her natural circumstances were. When you feel that your faith has run out, just rest in how God is always faithful! Count on His faithfulness, not your faithfulness. Lean hard on the fact that He remains faithful even when you’re wavering in faith (2 Timothy 2:13). Beloved, once God gives you a promise from His Word, it’s not for you to struggle and conjure up faith to make His promise come to pass. You cannot make the miracle happen—only God can. You are to rest in Him who has promised, rest in His faithfulness, and you will experience your miracle!
And when the dew fell on the camp in the night, the manna fell on it.
Grace For Your Darkest Moments
Look at today’s verse and notice that the manna fell on the camp of the Israelites during the night.
My friend, night speaks of the darkest moments in one’s life. This means that in your darkest moments, God is still supplying you His “manna” or grace. He has not abandoned you and left you to your own devices. No, He is still there with you, caring for you, watching over you and working things out for your good.
So beloved, rest in God’s love for you and let Him sort things out for you. Stop trying to solve the problem in your own strength and wisdom—let God be God to you. He is with you, for your success and will provide for your needs. His grace for you falls afresh every day. His mercies that are new every morning will also see you through the darkest nights!
Today, just see His grace upon you and all around you. Be conscious of it, thank Him for it, and see His grace do wonders for you! Joseph Prince
