Well, I would laugh too…uproarious laughter, probably mixed with wild tears and frantic and incredulous questions . So would Jerry, you can bank on that.
As did Abraham. As did Sarah.
Abe’s went this way:
“Then Abraham fell upon his face, and laughed, and said in his heart, Shall a child be born unto him that is an hundred years old? and shall Sarah, that is ninety years old, bear?” Genesis 17:17
Sarah’s, this way:
“And they said unto him, Where is Sarah thy wife? And he said, Behold in the tent. Therefore Sarah laughed within herself, saying After I am waxed old shall I have pleasure, my lord being old also?” Genesis 18:9, 12
But it was no laughing matter. The giggles ceased when the pains of labor gripped Sarah’s body, and the Word of God was fulfilled, and into the home of 100 year old Abraham was born Isaac, the Son of the Promise.
Don’t laugh at God’s Word. Don’t doubt His promises. Don’t limit His abilities. Let me assure you, God is of supreme trustworthiness. What He speaks WILL come to pass. Not maybe, not perhaps, not if the circumstances are just so, not if I think it might, not if I pray and fast enough, not if I’m good enough. No, it is an absolute. God’s Word will never speak a lie, It will never fail.
Don’t laugh. Believe!
