God gave Abraham and Sarah their promised child in their old age. This reminds me of my own story, where my father (whose Christian name is Abraham too) and mother waited almost ten years to receive God’s gift of a child (me!) to them. We are Abraham’s seed and heirs according to God’s promise in the Bible.
In a particularly dark time in my life, I awoke to this beautiful sight of amazing cirrus clouds painted over the blue morning sky. It was a comforting reminder of the hope and promise that His steadfast love never ceases and his mercies never end – they are new every morning! Great is thy faithfulness!
The Lord Jesus Christ died on the cross to pay the debt for our sins, and He rose again. He has gone to prepare a place for believers in Heaven, and has promised that He will come again for us. When He comes again, believers will be changed in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye (the time it takes for light to reflect off an eye), at the last trumpet, from corruptible to incorruptible, from mortal to immortal. We will meet Him in the air, and be with Him forevermore! Believe in Him, and share our blessed hope!
