AWAKE BIBLE IN A YEAR JANUARY 11
READ GENESIS 20-23
Some of our deepest struggles happen in our closest relationships. God cares about your married life. Can you give him the burden you feel? Can you hold the faith through one more trial?
God shows up to protect the marriage of Sarah and Abraham. They are going to repeat a prior mistake. And God isn’t gonna cancel them. What endless grace God shows to his friend. Abraham struggles with fear, have you been there? God is again so merciful. God will take up where Abraham drops the ball.
God’s character is consistent. Marriage should be honored and pure. HEB 13:4
Sarah is about to hold the promise of Isaac, but first she endures one more round in her marriage. God takes care of Sarah again.
Genesis 20:6 “And God said to him (Abimelech) in a dream, “Yes, I know that you did this in the integrity of your heart. For I also withheld you from sinning against Me; therefore I did not let you touch her (Sarai/Sarah).”
Perhaps this challenge is the last one before you gain the promise. Don’t give up.
