Waiting on God

It has always interested me how one of the most fascinating stories in the Bibl is Abraham.  It is a favorite because it brings out the potential problems that arise from not waiting on God. 

2 And Abram said, Lord GOD, what wilt thou give me, seeing I go childless, and the steward of my house is this Eliezer of Damascus? 3 And Abram said, Behold, to me thou hast given no seed: and, lo, one born in my house is mine heir. 4 And, behold, the word of the Lord came unto him, saying, This shall not be thine heir; but he that shall come forth out of thine own bowels shall be thine heir. 5 And he brought him forth abroad, and said, Look now toward heaven, and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them: and he said unto him, So shall thy seed be. 6 And he believed in the Lord; and he counted it to him for righteousness.Gen 15:2-6 (KJV)

1 Now Sarai Abram's wife bare him no children: and she had an handmaid, an Egyptian, whose name was Hagar. 2 And Sarai said unto Abram, Behold now, the Lord hath restrained me from bearing: I pray thee, go in unto my maid; it may be that I may obtain children by her. And Abram hearkened to the voice of Sarai. 3 And Sarai Abram's wife took Hagar her maid the Egyptian, after Abram had dwelt ten years in the land of Canaan, and gave her to her husband Abram to be his wife.  Gen 16:1-3 (KJV)  When Sarah was harsh towards Hagar even though it was her doings Hagar fled.  But God did not punish her for Abraham and Sarah's issues, 10 And the angel of the Lord said unto her, I will multiply thy seed exceedingly, that it shall not be numbered for multitude. 11 And the angel of the Lord said unto her, Behold, thou art with child, and shalt bear a son, and shalt call his name Ishmael; because the Lord hath heard thy affliction. 12 And he will be a wild man; his hand will be against every man, and every man's hand against him; and he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren. Gen 16:10-12 (KJV)

So you see, we have all the problems in the Middle East today, because even though Abraham was a great mand of God, chosen by God, he was still human and he still had issues.  Because he could not wait on the Lord, Ishmael was born and even today the battle rages on.

Moral of the story, we must learn, as hard as it is in our humanness to wait on God and He will provide.In Christ
