Reading: Genesis 17:15-17 NIV
[15] God also said to Abraham, “As for Sarai your wife, you are no longer to call her Sarai; her name will be Sarah. [16] I will bless her and will surely give you a son by her. I will bless her so that she will be the mother of nations; kings of peoples will come from her.” [17] Abraham fell facedown; he laughed and said to himself, “Will a son be born to a man a hundred years old? Will Sarah bear a child at the age of ninety?”

Thought: Have you ever laughed at Gods plan? Abraham was facing a promise so great that no one would believe it – impossible in the normal course of things but with God? All things are possible! Can God change our situation today – not the easy bit but the thing that is so ingrained as to be impossible? I can imagine Abraham shaking his head at you and chuckling “you might laugh…….”

Prayer: Lord help us to laugh with wonder and awe at what you have done and can do today!
