Well, I'm glad you're back and joiningus again today, another exciting day, as we make our way through the word ofGod. I hope this has been blessing you as much as it's bless me. I reallybelieve. I'm sure it as as God blesses us just through reading and studying iswere my goodness. We got I siding lesson today. Have you ever been amazedif yo fift walked outside and looked up at the stars and the universe and justgop wow God is big, I'm small God! Then you just look at it.You go just wow, that's awesome! ORHVE!...

You ever been at a beach. You see theocean coming in and you just been abazed at the beauty of it or maybe themajesty of the mountains. Have you ever been amazed at the Workof God on the Cross? Have you ever thought about the Crossand thought? My goodness? God is so incredible, we think of the many worksof God and we spayn back hand. We look at the universe, we look at the Crossand we look at the ocean and we're just amazed. Have you ever been amazed? Think God'sworking your life have you ever stepped back but said wow, look at what God's done in my life. Have you ever been as amazed about whatGod's done in your life is? You are with the ocean, the mountains or thestarvs. If not,...

...maybe there's a lesson for you today.Maybe there's a lesson through the word of God in the life of Sef. That wouldcause us to step back and say: Wow God's amazeing. Well, we're going to bein Genesis, chapter eighteen or reading for the day was genesis. Sixteenthrough nineteen were in chapter eighteen and I'm wonder, began readingin verst night and we'll go through fifteen. Then they said to him where it Sara Ouyour wife and he said the're in the tent. Now, in this passage, we have gotand two angels with Hem a priincarnate Christ. If you will who've come andvisited with ABRIL and they're coming and visiting with him and t ey saywhere is Sarah? He said there in the tent. He said I will surely return to you atthis time. This is God speaking next year and be old. Sarah and your wifewill have a son.

Sarah was listening at the tent door,which was behind it won e now Amram and Sarah were very Bo advanced in age. In fact, Ceril waswell past. Chal, Ber and Sara laughed to herself Sak after I'vebecome a old shill. I have pleasure with my husband, my Lord also since he's o speaking ofher husband, but God said to Abril. Why did SarahLaugh saying? Shall I indeed Beara Child whenIAM? So Lo is anything too difficult for God at the appointed time? I will return toyou at this next time at this time next year and Sarah will have a Sid Sarah and I dad say I did not laugh forshe was afraid.

The Lord said. No, you did laugh, we ask ourselves, Edoes, God reallywant to bless Tuss. Many of us in this life have theexperience, disappointment after disappointment after disapploint, and we nerer dare not get our hopes up,because if we do hope again, they got byt blesss will be disappointed again. We dare not believe that God hassomething good awaiting us. We can't bear the hope again becausewell be disappointed at Ye. We've accepted that we're just notgoing to be blessed, like others, are going to be glanced. We've acceptedthat God just doesn't favor us the way he favors others. Perhaps we think itis because of something within us. Even...

...why would God want to bless someonelike me? Perhaps we've just had a life full ofdisipploint decades and years of disappointment. Could it be that God really wants theBlad silelies and the reading? Today we saw that Sarah was infur and further. She was well past menipols.It was not even physically impossible for her to get pregnant, but the textimplies when she says that she couldn't have pleasure that her in the agepatriarch, Abraham and had sexual relations in years. However, Sarah's down as its basis, notso much in the impossibility of the situation, Sarah's doubt has its basis and themany times she's been disappointed...

...before how many times she must have fought.Maybe this time well have a baby. Maybe this time God will bless US yere after year,after interactions with her husband time andtime again, and yet they never ave a baby only tobe disappointed. Degads of Trie feal, with disappointe decades of hearingtheir neighbor, their frends, their family members. They have Cil, we never decades it went. Would God really be this good to her? She doubted is goodness more than shedoted is Abilliy and bythe way. To doubt, God's goodness is Seeim.That's why God reproved! That's? Why not says all you have?...

God was letting her know. You shouldn'tdoubt God's goods, the fact tof idle says it's iimpossibleto please God without fait. Thus, God asked abrol. Is thereanything that's too hard? For God? Is there anything too difficult for Godthat wore difficult in the text? Here is a word which means extraordinary in the sense of wonder and amazement. Is there anything to extraordinary, forGod? Is there anything that God can't do extraordinarily in your life amazein your life? Is there anything God can't do by the way? It's Sironic that Sarahactually confirmed God's word in her doubt you say well aster. How did shedo thit?...

Well, it sounds that after God said Yes, Sarah Versarteen Lord said Abraham willgoing back vers. Well, Sarah laughed to herself women, but a Hebrew word in there for you, Sarah Isict to Hersell Isaac was the name of their child, thatWut Peope and very clearly just the Lord eyes. Itmeans left and so by laughing she was confirmingGods or how I roi to lat. Sarah Isaac and it' so doingconfirm, confirmed God's work and then she pronounces her son's name. I did not Isaac again confirming God's work, but thenGod says: Oh yes, you did ISAC.

Having the final say, I will give you a child. This man will be ice. I said whetheryou believe it or not. My word stands. Ive said it. It will happen what agreat od, what a good God the next time. You wonder if God wantsto bless, you ask God to Putyo just say: God forge me for evenwondering Eh you're a bit guy. God wants to do aamazing things astonishingthings in your life, so Leson we have from the text of at be amazed an whatGod has done in your life and be amazed at what God wants to do.He said well pastor, what about all those disappointents,...
