Then the LORD said, "I will surely return to you about this time next year, and Sarah your wife will have a son."
Now Sarah was listening at the entrance to the tent, which was behind him. Abraham and Sarah were already old and well advanced in years, and Sarah was past the age of childbearing. So Sarah laughed to herself as she thought, "After I am worn out and my master is old, will I now have this pleasure?" Genesis 18:10-12
After over two decades of waiting, Sarah hears that in just a year, she will have a son. It’s hard to believe. Sarah is well beyond child-bearing years. She might have thought that her scheming with Hagar had tarnished the promise somehow. But, God was making good on the promise. Sarah couldn’t believe it. She just had to laugh.
Have you ever felt like you were in an impossible situation? Maybe you’ve recently had one of those days when you thought you were just going to pull your hair out. Sometimes life throws such ridiculous things at us that we just have to laugh. It’s good medicine (Proverbs 17:22).
