Heb 11:11 Through faith also Sara herself received strength to conceive seed, and was delivered of a child when she was past age, because she judged him faithful who had promised.
I read this verse from the Strong’s Concordance, the word strength was in a hyperlink so I opened it to see what it said;
force (literally or figuratively); specially, miraculous power (usually by implication, a miracle itself):–ability, abundance, meaning, might(-ily, -y, -y deed), (worker of) miracle(-s), power, strength, violence, mighty (wonderful) work.
The strength that Sarah received was actually strength power, ability; power for performing miracles.
My God!! Her faith was the bridge that gave her the power to receive strength power. Because she judged Him faithful. It was His faithfulness. It definitely wasn’t hers because until God got her believing right she laughed at the thought of conceiving in her old age.
Therefore Sarah laughed within herself, saying, After I am waxed old shall I have pleasure, my lord being old also?
But in the next two verses we see how God answered her doubt,
And the Lord said unto Abraham, Wherefore did Sarah laugh, saying, Shall I of a surety bear a child, which am old?
Is any thing too hard for the Lord? At the time appointed I will return unto thee, according to the time of life, and Sarah shall have a son.
After that conversation we don’t see anything else about Sarah doubting again. And in the book of faith Hebrews 11, Sarah is counted among the ones of great faith. Her doubt wasn’t even counted against her. ( That’s a whole other topic within itself)
Over and over we read in the bible, Jesus saying, “Go in peace, your faith has made thee whole”
And he said unto her, Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace, and be whole of thy plague.
And he said to the woman, Thy faith hath saved thee; go in peace.
And he said unto her, Daughter, be of good comfort:thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace.
But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said, Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour.
And Jesus said unto him, Receive thy sight:thy faith hath saved thee.
This morning what is your faith doing for you? Have you given your faith an assignment? Or do you have it on a shelf collecting dust?
As born again believers our faith is an integral part of receiving anything from The Kingdom of God.
The word says that we can’t even please Him without faith.
But without faith it is impossible to please him:for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
By faith we believe:
For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves:it is the gift of God:
Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.
Our faith is the catalyst that positions us to receive what grace has already made available to us.
To all the ones believing God for your children; by faith receive your strength today!!!! Receive strength power. Receive your supernatural enablement. Dust off your faith. Give it an assignment, put it to work for you.
I know that I’ve focused on married couples believing God for children but this is a Kingdom Principle that must be applied to every situation. Rest in what Jesus has already done. It is finished. Believe it! It’s yours!
