"Then God said to Abraham, "As for Sarai your wife, you shall not call her name Sarai, but Sarah shall be her name." Genesis 17:15

Sarai's new name is a part of the new covenant relationship with God. Sarah is an equal partner in the covenant by God's words to her and Abraham while He was making the sign of the covenant.

"And I will bless her and also give you a son by her; then I will bless her, and she shall be a mother of nations; kings of peoples shall be from her." (Gen. 17:16)

Beauty and barrenness was two of Sarah most notable characteristics. Her beauty attracted the attention of all who saw her; even the pagan rulers desired her. She had beauty, brilliance, and creativity, but the quality that marks her in our memories and sets her apart is her complete and total devotion to her husband Abraham. She shared not only his challenges and heartaches but also his dreams and blessings. She stood by him, unwaveringly, throughout their lifetime. Sarah is a good example of a wife that held a steadfast and unconditional love for her husband.

Sarah is the only woman in all of scripture that is spoken of in great detail. She is named as one of "the holy women" of old because she completely and willingly gave her husband her undivided loyalty which reinforced the fact that God viewed them as one flesh. God asked them both to believe that He would bless them with a son in their old age even though she had not been able to conceive.

Sarah experience many different emotions while living through infertility; from skepticism and embarrassment to envy and cruel accusations she placed on her maidservant because of their turbulent relationship (Gen. 16:3,4). Sarah fell into sin but God faithfully kept His promise that she would be "a mother of nations" (Gen. 17:16).

Sarah was known to be strong willed even though she chose to submit to Abraham, an attitude which was God approved. She is the only wife named in the heroes of the faith.

"By faith Sarah herself also received strength to conceive seed, and she bore a child when she was past the age, because she judged Him faithful who had promised."

(Heb. 11:8)

This amazing woman of the Bible stands to teach us two godly characteristics:

~Humble submission to our husband in marriage.

~Passionate commitment to nurturing the next generation.

I love you & He loves you more!

Lord, Thank You for Sarah's example of what a woman can endure in a lifetime and yet stay devoted to You. I pray for a refreshed commitment to living for You and being a godly mentor for my girls. In Jesus' name. Amen.

Good morning, Kim.

Probably no stronger demonstration of faith and faithfulness recorded in the Bible. Despite no naturally possible solution to her barrenness she lived to be a mother.

God can and will help us with our deepest, heartbreaking needs.

I am praying for your sweet mother, such a sweet and Godly woman as well as your father.

Have a blessed day.
