Gen 18:13-15, 21:6 (NKJV)
Why did Sarah laugh, saying, ‘Shall I surely bear a child, since I am old?’ Is anything too hard for the Lord? At the appointed time I will return to you, according to the time of life, and Sarah shall have a son.” But Sarah denied it, saying, “I did not laugh,” for she was afraid. And He said, “No, but you did laugh!” ………
And Sarah said, “God has made me laugh, and all who hear will laugh with me.”
Key Phrase: Laugh again, with Joy
Laughter is an outward expression of an emotional state of mind. It usually reflects a positive state of happiness and joy, but it can also be the opposite where it reflects confusion, embarrassment or sarcasm.
But whenever time we laugh, it’s always better, no, best to laugh after the Lord has done what man said was impossible.
In this week’s bible passages, 2 accounts of Sarah’s laughter stood on both sides of impossibility. First she laughed in disbelief and sacarsm then she laughed in Joy and Thanksgiving. God placed a testimony in-between which changed her story and made her laugh again.
This week, I pray we will laugh again.
Father, in your presence there is fullness of Joy, fill our lives with your presence. Lord, for everytime we have laughed in disbelief or sacarsm, intervene and turn those seemingly impossibilities into possibilities. Mostly Lord, we want to laugh again, a laughter of testimony, an infectious laughter that will cause people who hear to laugh with us, In Jesus name.
