And Sarah said, God hath made me to laugh, so that all that hear will laugh with me. Genesis 21:6
God is interested in your joy. “The blessing of the LORD, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it.” (Proverbs 10:22). He is interested in giving you blessings that will make you laugh, no matter the lies your circumstance is telling you now. When Sarah got the promised son, she laughed. It was a special laughter because the miracle was overdue. Having a son at age 90 was a miracle! The longer your miracle delays, the bigger it will be when it eventually comes. God will not just bless you in a hidden manner. He will so bless you that people will hear, and when they hear, they will laugh with you. He does not want to give you a small testimony but one that will be obvious to all that will see and hear so that all the glory will go back to Him.
Beloved, what have you been expecting from God? They will enter your life this month and you will laugh. Peradventure, if you check your expectations for the year 2017, none of them have come to pass. We are in December and you are wondering whether your expectations will still come through. Relax. We serve a God of the 11th hour. If He came through for Sarah at that old age, He will surely come through for you. Don’t lose hope; don’t look for short cuts to your expectations. Your season of remembrance has come.
However, Sarah activated the release of the miracle when she and Abraham gave the Lord venison (Genesis 18). Make up your mind to give God venison this month. Give Him praise! Give Him your time in church attendance! Give Him your talent! Give Him souls you will win! Give Him sacrifice! Get your tithe and stewardship cards and be faithful in them. When you do these, watch the God of impossibility make you laugh this month.
Raised from the dead
One day I had an argument with one of my uncles. Few minutes later I slumped and my wife took me to hospital where the doctor confirmed me dead. She was asked to take me to the mortuary but instead she took me back to the house and left me in the room with faith that I will come back to life. That night as daddy Larry preached on radio, she brought the radio and placed it close to my ear. When he started praying, I sneezed and woke up. She told me all these things when I revived. I thank God who did not allow me to be a dead man. May His name alone be praised in Jesus name!
