Advent Devo 3

Verse: And God said to Abraham… “I will bless Sarah, and moreover, I will give you a son by her, and she shall become nations; kings of peoples shall come from her.” Then Abraham fell on his face and laughed and said to himself, “Shall a child be born to a man who is a hundred years old? Shall Sarah, who is ninety years old, bear a child?” (Genesis 17:15-17)


Meditation: Abraham laughed because the promise of God was hard to believe. It seemed too good to be true. But God would do what he said he would. It seemed that God wanted to begin the larger project of building a whole people with one outlandish promise. And of course that’s the point: the whole project was founded on faith.


Prayer: Father, we pray that our faith might be the like the faith of Abraham, and we pray that we might model that faith to our children, that they would become inheritors of our faith, even the faith of Abraham. Grant us to believe that you will fulfill your promises to us, and teach us to live in the expectant hope of believing.

Prayer Is Reminding God

It’s an odd thing to say that prayer is reminding God. It’s odd because—well, doesn’t God know all things? How could we remind him of anything? If you didn’t know, God’s primary way of relating to his
