God’s Almighty Humor

Genesis 17:15-22

Many people think faith means never questioning or doubting God. However, God invites us to be real, because all genuine relationships require honesty.

In Genesis 17, God reminded Abraham that His covenant plan involves Sarah giving birth to a son. However, from Abraham’s human perspective, this idea sounded absurd. How could a 90-year-old woman bear a child? Abraham questioned God’s plan, His judgment, and even His ability. In fact, we’re told Abraham fell on his face and laughed aloud (v. 17). God’s response might be surprising. He didn’t get angry, punish Abraham, or choose someone else. In fact, God actually showed His humor by telling Abraham to name the baby Isaac, which means “he laughs.” In essence, God said to Abraham, “I know this sounds ridiculous, but sit back and you will see My power and faithfulness.”

We too can be assured that God is faithful to fulfill His promises.

    Yes God you are faithful!!! I just being obedient day by day. I believe you have placed this program to be a desire of my heart. I focus one day at a time. I believe in You and Trust in YOU that you will get me through this program. Your Word in Jeremiah 33:3 states Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not. Of course Jeremiah 29:11. For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. I Trust in YOU.
