If you’ve ever waited on God, you would understand what Abraham went through.
After God reassured Abraham that he would have a son, “Abraham believed the Lord” (Genesis 15:6). But despite Abraham’s faith, the child didn’t come as he grew older.
So, when Abraham’s wife came up with the idea that Abraham should sleep with her maidservant so they can build a dynasty through her, Abraham fell for it. At that time, Abraham was not only concerned with having a son that would inherit his wealth; he also wanted to build a family.
Although the idea came from Sarah, the decision was taken by Abraham. What Abraham did is what usually happens when we let others get in the way of our divine assignment. Stay focused!
