Sarah is known in the Bible as the mother of Israel. She was also the wife of Abraham, and one of the most important women in the Bible. Sarah is an example of faith in God. Even when things looked bad, Sarah trusted that God had a plan for her.
You can learn a lot from Sarah’s story. One lesson is that you should never give up on God. He has a plan for you, even when things seem difficult. You may not understand what God is doing, but you can trust Him to guide you through anything.
Sarah’s Obedience to God
Sarah was obedient to God and followed his commands, even when it was difficult. She trusted God to provide for her, even in difficult times. When she was told to leave her home and go to a new land, she did not hesitate to obey.
You can learn from Sarah’s example that obedience is key to a fulfilling relationship with God. When you follow His commands, you can trust Him to provide for you and take care of you. He knows what is best for you, and will guide you through even the most difficult times.
Sarah’s Support of Abraham
You’ve probably heard the saying “behind every great man is a great woman.” Well, that’s certainly true for the story of Abraham and Sarah.
Sarah was a pillar of support for Abraham. She encouraged him when he was down, and she helped him when he needed it. She was his sounding board, his partner in crime, and his best friend. Without her support, Abraham would not have been as successful as he was.
Can you think of a time when you could use some extra support? Maybe you’re going through a tough time at work or you’re struggling with a personal issue. Sarah is a perfect example of how to get through tough times with grace and dignity. Let her be your inspiration, and never give up on yourself.
Sarah’s Generosity to Others
Sarah’s faithfulness to God is revealed in her generous character. In Genesis 18:1-10, Sarah offered hospitality to strangers, even though it was Abraham and herself alone who had the resources of food and water to feed and water three angels.
Sarah freely shared with those who needed it and demonstrated a generous spirit in the face of challenge. In 1 Peter 4:9 we are called to be hospitable, show kindness and serve others from our hearts. As followers of Jesus we are called to demonstrate our faith through how we serve others and Sarah’s example shows us how we too can show generosity without expecting anything in return.
In Sarah’s case, she ended up being rewarded for her generosity when she found out that one of the strangers was actually an angel sent by God to bless her with a son. This is a reminder that when we willingly give out of our abundance, God blesses us in unexpected ways.
Sarah’s Strength in Difficult Times
Sarah faced numerous difficult times in her life, and yet she remained strong and faithful and trusted God to deliver her through. One example of Sarah’s strength can be seen in the story of Abraham’s journey to the land of Moriah to sacrifice Isaac. In that moment, Sarah took courage and faced the situation with incredible wisdom and strength, despite knowing that it would be a challenging journey.
By doing this, Sarah demonstrated her faith in God and her understanding that He is bigger than all of our problems. She remained steadfast, not wavering even in a time rife with impossible circumstances. Sarah’s strength serves as a reminder for us all: no matter the trial we face, or how difficult it may seem, God is always capable of delivering us from our troubles—we need only remain strong and trust Him for guidance.
What We Can Learn From Sarah’s Life
Sarah’s life is a powerful example of what it looks like to live a life of faith and trust. Despite some of the most difficult circumstances, Sarah remained steadfast and faithful in her trust in God.
For us, this means having the same level of faith and trust that Sarah had even when it seems hard. We can also learn from her courage and willingness to take risks for the sake of God’s plan. Even though she didn’t always understand what God was doing, she was willing to take chances and be open minded to the plans God had for her.
Finally, we can learn from Sarah’s relationships with those around her. She had a servant spirit in taking care of their guests, showing hospitality and love even when it wasn’t always easy to do so. We can emulate this by being devoted to our family and friends, showing kindness even when we don’t feel like it.
Sarah’s life is an inspiration to all of us who are still learning how to grow in our faith and how to live out obediently in an ever changing world.
As you can see, Sarah was a woman who faced many challenges, but she always trusted in God. She was also a woman of great faith, and she taught her children to trust in God as well.
No matter what challenges you are facing in your life, remember that you can always trust in God. He will never leave you or forsake you. He is always there for you, and He will help you through whatever you are going through.
