a good laugh

I was recently reading about Abraham & I was pleasantly surpised to notice that when the angel spoke to Abraham about having a son in his old age, he literally fell to the ground laughing!!  And when Sarah heard that she would carry a baby in her very old age, she also busted out laughing!  Both parents had a good laugh at what seemed totally impossible, but what was also probably the biggest desire in their lives.  Perhaps they had been disappointed when year after year, Sarah never became pregnant until it seemed to be too late.  Maybe the only reply that they had left to their decades of disappointment was to laugh at what seemed to be absurd. 

Nevertheless, God is faithful to His promises even when they seem impossible & Sarah became pregnant.  Its completely funny to recognize that God’s name for their son was Isaac, which means laughter  .  The decades of disappointment had been replaced with laughter for everyone.  Please be encouraged that God is faithful to His promises even when they seem impossible.  Maybe one day, you’ll look at the impossible & laugh with faith, knowing that nothing is impossible with God.
