What God Saw in Abraham


With Abraham and Sarah, God wasn’t looking for the most physically fit pair of parents...

Hebrews 11:11-12 And by faith even Sarah, who was past childbearing age, was enabled to bear children because she considered him faithful who had made the promise. And so from this one man, and he as good as dead, came descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky and as countless as the sand on the seashore.

Look at the descriptions of Sarah and Abraham. She, who was past childbearing age, and he, who was as good as dead – wow. These are the people God chose to give birth to a nation. So as funny as it may seem to us today to think of an 100 year old Abraham and a 90 year old Sarah having a baby, let’s see what God saw.

He wasn’t looking for the most physically fit pair of parents; God was looking for those people who would trust Him, who would move in His will, who would consider Him faithful.
