Super-Faith Sunday Answer – ‘Faith-full’ Sarah

Hey Neighbor! 

It’s Tuesday, and Today I have your Super-Faith Sunday Answer!!

*****************************

Now what kind of answer do you give your husband when he wakes you up at the crack of dawn and then ushers you to quickly pack a bag and says, “Let’s go!! 

As she wipes the sleep from her barely opened eyes, she says, “Abe, Where are we going??”

We know that his Answer could have only been – “I don’t know yet, baby…but come on…let’s go!”

Now this is a really good wife right here – This Sarai!!

She could have rolled right on over and told this man to lay his crazy tail down, but instead she ‘faith-fully’ and dutifully grabs her most essential things and follows her husband. 

In Hindsight, we know that Sarai and Abram were headed to the land of Canaan, but at that time, they were leaving Haran, with no destination in mind, merely following the command of a voice that they did not recognize.

This was a new kind of ‘god’ to them- not one of their voiceless and sedentary images that they were accustomed to worshipping

This one spoke- and quite powerfully too, but not in a scary or spooky sort of way, but most emphatically!! 

God had called Abram, awakening Him with the Words, “Go!”

  • NOW [in Haran] the Lord said to Abram, Go for yourself [for your own advantage] away from your country, from your relatives and your father“s house, to the land that I will show you. (Genesis 12:1)

Now – I’m pretty sure I just heard Him say Go, but He didn’t really say- Where?? 

That’s Right!! God was doing what I call His, ‘walk by faith thing.’ In other words…

Trust My Words for now- and I will fill in the gaps later!! 

Now, These ‘Words’ were spoken to Abram- not Sarai. Of course we know Lot is just along for the ride- Now that’s another story for another day-🫖 Because Today, I am suppose to be telling You about Sarah!! 

So this ‘faith-full’ wife follows her husband…

Who is following an unknown voice…

and Lot is following them!!

Wow!!

But Seriously Now- Abraham has heard the voice of The One True and Living God- The God Who produced and formed the world and all things in it -The Lord of heaven and earth!!

Abraham has heard God and has believed- and because Sarah is a loving , patient, and ‘faith-full’ wife, She will follow this Man wherever His God leads him!! 

Whether it be to Egypt – Where Abe Gives her away to Pharaoh, saying “She is my sister!”

Or Whether it be to Gerar- Where once again, Abe Gives her to another king, Abimilech, saying, “She is my sister!”

Sounds like a Story we would hear about on Divorce Court- huh??

But let’s have a little Patience with Old Abe, after all- He is still following God!! 

In fact, Abe has established a relationship with God and the Two of them are bonding- although Abe makes a mess from time to time!! 

Now Sarah, is still following her husband and during those 25 years at his heels, 

She has gone along with the ‘She’s my Sister’, act!! (partially true) 

She has gone along with the name change thing!! Sarai vs Sarah!!

She has heard all the Promises!! (second-hand)

But Sarai still has had no visit from God, nor a son- as promised!!

She grew impatient, angry, disappointed, and extremely jealous because of Abe and Hagar and their son, Ishmael!!

You see…All the riches that she received in Egypt and in Gerar were not enough to fill her empty womb…Until God Shows Up for Sarah!!

Yes!! Finally! A One-on-One visit with God!! 

No!! Not with Abraham as a ‘go-between!’

God shows up in Sarah’s life and gives her His Personal Promise!! 

And unlike Abe, When God makes a Promise, He Keeps It!! 

God Gave Sarah a Son and Called Him Laughter!! 

Why Laughter??

You see when God showed up the year prior, visiting Abe, and promising him a child through Sarah…Sarah heard all these things and Laughed!! 

 -And the Lord asked Abraham, Why did Sarah laugh, saying, Shall I really bear a child when I am so old? (Genesis 18:13)

Well, Sarah denied that she Laughed!! 

After all, She was 89 years old!! 

But just one year later, God Showed and Proved Himself in Sarah’s life – breaking through her stubborn unbelief!! 

God showed Sarah that nothing is impossible with Him, and that nothing is too hard or too wonderful for the Lord!!

Sarah, like Abraham, was now a firm, and righteous believer in The Almighty God!! 

He was no longer ‘Abraham’s God,’ but He was now Sarah’s God- And That Same God called Sarah, ‘Faith-Full!!’

Bible Trivia Thursday- God ’Pre-named’ Him!!


Hey Neighbor! 

It’s 3/24/2022 and Today is Trivia Thursday!! 

This week we have been learning about God’s ‘faith-full’ servant, Hagar.  Now Hagar was Abram’s Egyptian concubine who bore him his very first child. 

Remember, It was in the wilderness, after Hagar had taken flight from her mistress, Sarai that she was confronted by the Angel of the Lord, who told her that she was going to have a baby boy and his name would be called, ‘God Hears’ – or Ishmael. 

Now this was the first time that We’ve seen God ‘pre-name’ someone in the Bible; Yes – Named by God before birth!!
Again – First time, but not the last!!

In fact, Abraham will become the Father of several more ‘pre-named’ descendants, who were blessed with ‘God-given’ names before they had even exited their mother’s womb – and at other times, before the child had ever been conceived!!  

Thus – Today’s Trivia Thursday Challenge –

Can You identify Abraham’s ‘Pre-named’ descendants, by matching the son with his mother?? 

Ex: He was a descendant of Abraham, and He was the son of Hagar. God ‘pre-named’ him, Ishmael.

Grab Your Bibles and Have Fun!!

  3. He was a descendant of Abraham, and He was the son of Elizabeth. God ‘pre-named’ him, ______________________. 
  4. He was a descendant of Abraham, and He was the son of Jedidah. God ‘pre-named’ him, _______________________. 
  5. He was a descendant of Abraham, and He was the Son of Mary. God ‘pre-named’ Him, _______________________.

Super Faith Sunday Answer- Who is She??

-So Abraham rose early in the morning and took bread and a bottle of water and gave them to Hagar, putting them on her shoulders, and he sent her and the youth away. And she wandered on [aimlessly] and lost her way in the wilderness of Beersheba- (Genesis 21:14)

Today is 3/22/2022 and I have Our Super Faith Sunday Challenge Answer:

Who is She??

Hagar

*************
“What is Troubling You?”

These are the words that Hagar heard from heaven after she had been thrown out… banished…and abandoned…both her and her little boy…
-from her husband, her home and all that she had become familiar with and accustomed to-

Her husband, Abraham, had put her away…
Her son, Ishmael had been turned away by his father…
It appeared that they were all alone…and scripture tells us that Hagar and the young boy wandered in the wilderness, aimlessly.

Where would they Go?

What would they Do?

Who would open their doors to them and have mercy on this homeless mother and her fatherless child?

Hagar was hopeless and afraid!!

Abraham had sent her away with only bread and a bottle of water. He placed it upon her shoulders early that morning, before bidding her farewell.

She had been a ‘thorn in the side’ to Abraham and Sarah…stirring up strife in their marriage and stirring up jealousy in her son, towards his brother Isaac.

Sarah had finally reached her breaking point…Demanding that this bondwoman and her son be cast out and away from her sight.

Abraham loved Ishmael and reluctantly acknowledged his wife, Sarah’s request. It was only because God had spoken to Abraham…confirming that he must do what Sarah had asked, that Abe grievously sent them away.

So as Hagar wandered aimlessly in the wilderness, with no real destination in mind…she lost her way…and had run out of water.

How could she and her son survive or sustain themselves in the blistering conditions of the desert with no water and no refuge??

Hagar could see no hope in sight…as her eyes were likely, filled with tears and her head hung low in despair…But God saw Hagar and God loved both Hagar and Ishmael…and showed them His mercy and His lovingness.
He called out to Hagar from Heaven and He opened Her eyes…revealing a well of water.

She had nearly given up…having distanced herself from the boy and placing him under a shrub…fearing that he would be overcome from by the sun and the heat…Ishmael’s Mother could not bear to watch him wither away and die from dehydration.

Hagar treaded off and sat down in despair, away from Ishmael and raised up her voice and wept…as her young son also lifted up his voice and cried out…probably for his mother…Then God heard them both!!

God had not abandoned them…He was with Hagar and Ishmael and He quenched their thirsts…and spared their lives and fulfilled His promise to make Ishmael into a great nation.

-Then God opened her eyes and she saw a well of water; and she went and filled the [empty] bottle with water and caused the youth to drink. And God was with the youth, and he developed; and he dwelt in the wilderness and became an archer. He dwelt in the Wilderness of Paran; and his mother took a wife for him out of the land of Egypt- (Genesis 21:19-21)
