Stay the Course

Genesis 16 tells the story of how Abram and Sarai compromised to see God’s promise realized prematurely. You can hardly blame them because they had already waited 10 years without the child God had promised, and they were not exactly spring chickens before that. But by taking God’s plan into their own hands, they caused themselves great heartache and trouble. Their compromise resulted in marital trouble, and Ishmael and his descendants would certainly fulfill the blessing God revealed to Hagar. Whenever we think our plan is better than God’s and so plot our own shortcut, it backfires. You can count on it. So stay the course. Follow God’s plan, even when your patience wears thin.
