A Daily Devotion for Monday, June 15


Genesis 21:8-21


Verses 9-10: But Sarah saw that the son whom Hagar the Egyptian had born to Abraham was mocking, and she said to Abraham, “Get rid of that slave woman and her son, for that slave woman’s son will never share in the inheritance with my son Isaac.” These verses make me think about Sarah’s insecurities and her inability to be truly trusting and thankful for what God had given her. I can relate to that. It is hard sometimes to be thankful for blessings and at the same time trust God to protect them for me. Those blessings belong to God. In this situation, despite her blessings, Sarah became vindictive and mean in an attempt to protect her son and his inheritance. (Not to mention protecting herself from further humiliation.) I must always remember where blessings come from. They are not mine, earned and owned by me. They are gifts from God. God is always in control.

Father God, you have blessed me, and covered me with your grace. I am so thankful. Help me to trust, and to be patient. Amen
