Ishmael — God hears.

12 Aug

“Your slave is in your hands,” Abram said. “Do with her whatever you think best.” Then Sarai mistreated Hagar; so she fled from her.”  Genesis 16: 6 NIV

Sarai took matters into her own hands…and then was upset over the results.  She could no longer wait for God to help…and then …what a mess!  And who suffered?  Everyone.

Sarai was so shamed by her childless state in this time of history…that her pain was becoming unbearable.    God came and said you will have children….to Abram…you will have descendants more numerous than the stars…..Sarai could only laugh bitterly.

Day after day… month after month…nothing happened.

So…Sarai took matters into her own hands…

Quite obviously…she did not make a wise decision.
