Daily Fountain 2017 - Isaac: The Child Of Promise







Monday June 26

Bible Reading:     Gen. 21: 1 - 8
Topic:         Isaac - The Child Of Promise

God promised to bless Abraham with a son through Sarah (Gen. 15:4; 17: 15, 21; 18: 10 - 14) and He fulfilled it when Abraham was 100 years and his wife 90 years of age.

This confirms God as having impeccable and trusted integrity. Whatever He says or promises, He does or fulfills.

What is that promise of God to you, which is yet to come to pass?
Trust and hold onto it and "Give Him no rest till He make Jerusalem a praise in the earth" (Isa. 62: 7; Matt. 7:7)

Abraham kept his own part of the covenant with God in Gen. 17: 10, he circumcised Isaac (v. 4)

God is a covenant keeping God (Ps. 50: 5)

Have you asked anything from God? or have you made a vow or entered into any covenant with God? Abraham did (v. 4); Hannah did (1 Sam. 1: 24 - 28)

Abraham made a great feast when the child was weaned.

There is nothing to compare with the thrill we have when our desire is fulfilled by God.

Prayer
Father as You fulfilled Your promise by giving Abraham and Sarah a son, so I pray You to answer my prayer to You, Amen.

Memory Verse             Gen. 21: 5
"And Abraham was an hundred years old when his son Isaac was born to him."
