Abraham and god's amazing promise

  1. 1. Abraham and God’s Amazing Promise<br />
  2. 2. “I saw you laughing!”<br />“No, I didn’t!”<br />“Yes, you did!”<br />“No, I didn’t!”<br />“Yes, you did!”<br />Abraham said to his wife Sarah.<br />
  3. 3. God does like to do crazy and impossible things but they are all always wonderful things.<br />So why did Sarah laugh?<br />To find that out, we’ll have to go back in this story a little bit.<br />
  4. 4. Many many years before, God had promised Abraham that he would be the father of many nations. God said that from him would come as many children as there were stars in the sky. That was God’s amazing promise to Abraham and to Sarah. <br />But years went by and still Abraham and Sarah didn’t have any children of their own. Not even one. <br />
  5. 5. Until the day Sarah laughed.<br />On that day Abraham was sitting by the door of his tent. He looked up and saw three men standing in front of him.<br />As soon as he saw them, he ran to them, greeted them and told them,<br />“I am here to serve you.”<br />
  6. 6. And so Abraham prepared fresh water and food for the strangers.<br />When all was ready, he brought the meal to his guests and served them.<br />“Where is your wife Sarah?”, one of the strangers asked.<br />“She is inside the tent.”, Abraham said.<br />“Nine months from now, I will come back and your wife will have a son.”<br />
  7. 7. Now, Sarah was standing inside the tent and when she heard what the stranger said, she thought to herself,<br />“How can I have a son when I am so old!”<br />The thought of it was so funny, she laughed.<br />
  8. 8. But God promised them a son and even though Abraham was 99 years old and Sarah was 90 years old at the time, nine months later she did have a son!<br />Just as God had promised!<br />Abraham named his son Isaac, which means “Laughter”.<br />Our God can do such amazing things and He always keeps His promises!<br />
  9. 9. Abraham and God’s Amazing Promise<br />
  10. 10. Patience verse for the month<br />“But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience.”<br />Romans 8:25<br />
