Hebrews 11:11 ESV
By faith Sarah herself received power to conceive, even when she was past the age, since she considered him faithful who had promised.
Consider - regard as, hold to be, reckon to be, view as, seen as
Sarah considered GOD to be faithful. What do you consider GOD to be? Have you considered the fact that it was her belief that manifested the promise? GOD gave Sarah a word and she believed HIM. It was one of the most craziest things to believe. Okay, yes for many having a baby is just a matter of biology. Yet, for Sarah biology was the very thing that could have caused her to doubt.
You see for Sarah the word says that she was past the age; meaning she was no longer able, (according to biology) to bare a child. So it is safe to say that Sarah had already gone through menopause. And as if that alone wasn't enough, her husband was older than her. In Genesis 18, Sarah laughed to herself as she thought "After I am worn out, and my lord is old, shall I have pleasure? (ESV). Yet, the thing I love the most is that GOD knew she laughed yet the response was..."Is anything too hard for the LORD? At the appointed time I will return to you, about this time next year, and Sarah shall have a son."
I want to tell you that it is okay, that when GOD gave you a word you laughed or perhaps considered your circumstances and saw no way for the word given to you to come to pass. Just as long as you understand like Sarah that nothing is too hard for GOD and that HE has appointed a time for your promise to manifest. Just consider HIM faithful no matter what your circumstances are telling you. Your circumstances may be a fact, but they are not the truth.
Hold fast to your faith. Do not doubt. Consider GOD to be the faithful one; the everlasting FATHER and the Prince of Peace. Believe HIS word past anything you may see, think or feel!
