Scripture Union Daily Guide 2 June 2022 MESSAGE
How do you feel when you finally receive something you have been expecting over a period of time? Abraham and Sarah had waited for the promised child for so long but after repeated promises, God finally fulfilled His promise (v.1). Note that Sarah conceived and gave birth to a son “at just the time God had said it would” (v.2). Waiting for answer to prayer can be tough.
We may be tempted to give up because the answer to our prayers had delayed, but when we finally receive the answer, it brings us joy and laughter.
No wonder Abraham named the boy Isaac, which means laughter. When we find ourselves in situations of prolonged trials of faith and hopelessness, similar to that of Abraham and Sarah, let’s learn to keep believing God (Romans 4:18‐20), being rest assured that He is faithful, and He will fulfil His promises to us at His own time (Habakkuk 2:2‐3).
Observe that Ishmael (born by the scheming of Abraham and Sarah) had to be expelled so he will not interfere with God’s covenant promise (vs.8‐14). What can we learn from this? Holding on to the sinful nature can hinder the fulfilment of God’s promise in your life (Romans 8:2‐8).
For Further Study: See Galatians 4:21‐31 for clearer understanding of the spiritual dimension of this story.
And so: We are justified by faith in Christ, and not by the works of the Law: for by the works of the Law shall no flesh be justified. Thank God for His redemption.

I will sing the wondrous story
1. I will sing the wondrous story, Of salvation full and free, How my Savior left His glory To redeem and ransom me.
Refrain I will sing the wondrous story, Though but young in years I be; Jesus came from realms of glory To redeem and ransom me.
- Heavenly story of salvation! How the Son of God on high Came to earth in rich compassion, Gave Himself for us to die.
I will sing this bless?d story, Gladly sing it everywhere, Of the Savior’s matchless glory, And the love His children share.
I will sing the story sweetly, And when life is sinking low, I will trust Him then completely, For my Savior loves me so.
• Pray to God for help, not to forfeit His promise, plan and purpose for your life.
Offer a prayer of faith in line with 1 Samuel 1:17
