Genesis 18:10-14

10And he said, I will certainly return unto thee according to the time of life; and, lo, Sarah thy wife shall have a son. And Sarah heard it in the tent door, which was behind him. 11 Now Abraham and Sarah were old and well stricken in age; and it ceased to be with Sarah after the manner of women. 12 Therefore Sarah laughed within herself, saying, After I am waxed old shall I have pleasure, my lord being old also? 13 And the Lord said unto Abraham, Wherefore did Sarah laugh, saying, Shall I of a surety bear a child, which am old? 14 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.


A common comment you hear from people who have been expecting a specific breakthrough from God for a long time is that they have cannot wait any longer. Their faith begins to wane and doubts set in.  

We all get discouraged sometimes, even concerning things God promised us. You can look at your age, your situations and others of the same age with you, and wonder if you are not too late for life. Well, Sarah laughed and asked, “Shall I have pleasure, my lord being old also?” God said “Yes”. We know Sarah birthed Isaac just over the exact time prophesied.


If God tells you something, you better believe that He has considered all situations and events in your life before making such a declaration. If God said you will be building houses, you better believe Him and not look at your age and bank accounts. God is never late in what He does with His plan for our lives. He is always right on time.



1.      Thank God that You can hold on to His word even if it takes years, all because of His sovereignty.

2.      Ask for your feeble knees to be strengthened so you can continue in prayer as you wait for your breakthroughs.

3.     Father, I receive fresh grace to wait in faith, trusting You to eventually bring to pass what You have promised me



My God holds both time and eternity. My times are seasons are in His Hands. A thousand years to Him is like one day and day like a thousand years. Therefore, I rise up in faith and declare the overtakers anointing is upon me. I let go of all forms of negativity. I reject every agenda of despair. I declare by faith that my age, circumstances and the events in my life cannot halt the fulfillment of God’s plans purpose for my life. I will wait on Him until my change comes in the name of Jesus.
