Don't Act In Presumption

Topic: Don't Act In Presumption

Scripture Reading: Genesis 16:1-16

Main Text
Genesis 16:2

'So Sarai said to Abram, “See now, the Lord has restrained me from bearing children. Please, go in to my maid; perhaps I shall obtain children by her.” And Abram heeded the voice of Sarai.'

Sarai felt personally responsible for the absence of this son. She assumed that since she had not given birth to a child, and her age seemed to prohibit it, something else must be done to enable Abram to have a child through another woman.

Here is the sin of presumption. Failing to trust God to provide a son, she forced the situation by pressuring Abram into taking Hagar as his wife which had undesirable consequences.

God had never placed the responsibility for producing a child on Sarai, or Abram. God had promised to provide the child. Just as God had prevented Sarai from conceiving in that period, so He would provide an heir.

Faith never tries to force God to act, nor to act in God’s place, nor to accomplish what is supernatural in the power of the flesh. What has God promised you? Don't act in presumption. Wait for His appointed time for performance.

Prayer:
Eternal Father, I receive grace to act in faith for the fulfilment of Your promise in Jesus' name. Amen

Have a blissful day!
Shalom
