Episode 263


10 Then one of them 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. 11 Abraham and Sarah were already very old, and Sarah was past the age of childbearing. 12 So Sarah laughed to herself as she thought, “After I am worn out, and my lord is old, will I now have this pleasure?” 13 Then the LORD said to Abraham, “Why did Sarah laugh and say, ‘Will I really have a child, now that I am old?’ 14 Is anything too hard for the LORD? I will return to you at the appointed time next year, and Sarah will have a son.” 15 Sarah was afraid, so she lied and said, “I did not laugh.” But he said, “Yes, you did laugh.”

Genesis 18:10-15


Do not laugh at God’s promises. I know sometimes it’s hard to see it. It’s hard to trust in it. It’s hard to have faith when time just keeps passing by, but if the Lord has something for you, nothing, not even old age, will stop Him from blessing you with His promise.


If you are praying for a partner, keep praying. If you are hoping for a child, keep hoping. There are many things God has spoken over us. They may not all come to fruition as you have imagined in your head, but God’s promise is all the same.


The best part of this verse is when she lies, and he said Yes, you did laugh. He called her out on her lie. God knows all. He sees all. There is no room for laughing and no room for lying. It’s a waste of energy. Instead pray, hard. Grow your faith. Hold onto Hope. 



Father God, thank you for a beautiful Wednesday. Thank you for speaking a blessing into each of our lives. Father, we hold onto the promises you have for us. May we never laugh at your promise, no matter how old we get. May we hold onto our faith. We thank you in advance for all that you do. It is in your Son’s Holy name that we pray, AMEN!

Hi, I'm Ali.
I want to encourage you on your faith journey!

I'm the coffee obsessed baker from Miami, FL who got too busy to find time to read scripture everyday. I knew my life was better with Jesus and I knew I wasn't the only one struggling with finding alone time with God every morning, so I put my dreams of opening a bakery aside and set out to produce a five minute daily devotional. What first started as an email chain, has now flourished into a beautiful community and I am so happy you are here!


We are a faith based community in pursuit of daily prayer. All it takes is five minutes - we know you're busy but He loves you still.
