Abraham and Sarah received the promise of having a child of their own yet years after years, it doesn’t seem like it was coming to pass. Sarah would have expected a child probably by a year or two or perhaps within five years but when reality doesn’t match her expectation, she reasoned she has not done enough to receive the miracle and offered her maidservant, Hagar to her husband.
Well, that didn’t solve the situation. As we all know, Abraham did receive the promised child through Sarah as God had promised. Today, God wants to free you from those burdens and expectation that you have created for yourself. He wants to release His life of peace to you and His promises still stands, release yourself and worries to God. Stop trying to control everything. God has promised and He will do it. Let go and let God in.
Genesis 28: 15
I am with you and will watch over you wherever you go, and I will bring you back to this land. I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you.
