    DAY SIX

    Read Genesis 21:1-21

    1. After a second near disaster for Sarah, what did God do for her?

    2. Sarah and Abraham named their son Isaac. What did Sarah acknowledge about Isaac in verse 6?

    3. What adversity came with the blessing of Isaac for Sarah? (vv.8-10)

    4. What did God confirm to Abraham regarding Sarah, Isaac, Hagar, and Ishmael? (vv.11-13)

    5. Read Genesis 22:1-19. What do you suppose happened to Sarah during this time of testing for Abraham and Isaac?

    6. How old was Sarah when she died? (Gen. 23:1)

    7. Where was she buried? (Gen. 23:19)

    LESSONS AND APPLICATIONS

    1. God is able to do the impossible. What, like Sarah, are you looking forward to by faith? (Matt. 17:20, 19:26; Mark 10:27; Luke 1:37, 18:27)

    2. God gives us opportunities to grow in faith. What test of faith might God be allowing in your life today? (1 Pet. 1:6-9, 4:12-13)

    3. God remembered Sarah. What are you waiting for in your life right now, praying and trusting that God will "remember" you?

    (For more information about Sarah from Scripture see: Isa. 51:2; Rom. 4:19, 9:9; 1 Pet. 3:6.)


    CONCLUSION

    Sarah was a remarkable woman. She "obeyed her husband by calling him lord." (I Pet. 3:6) She followed him from Ur to Haran, through Canaan, and down to Egypt. In Egypt she was used as a bargaining tool for the caravan family of Abraham. Sarah shared the burden of despair with Abraham from not being able to conceive a child. It would appear that Abraham was monogamous with Sarah. However, in her impatience, she decided to fix the promise of a child by adopting an idea from pagan culture that was not in keeping with the promise God intended. The Egyptian maid, Hagar, conceived and the result was a child by the will of man. The self-will of Sarah brought much heartache to the family and to Sarah. Later she had to separate herself and her family from Hagar and Ishmael.

    Sarah was given a miracle child in Isaac. She and Abraham spent many years enjoying the blessing of God's promise of descendants through their beloved son. This was not without great challenge and faith building, but in the end the blessedness of Sarah's barrenness was revealed by Almighty God. The blessedness of God was seen and shared, as it is even today! TO GOD BE THE GLORY!
