Sara loved her husband so bad, she knew he really wanted a son. So instead of waiting on GOD’s word he had spoken to her and her husband she thought she would take matters into her own hand. So she gave her handmaiden to Abraham.
Sometimes we want something so bad that we will run the risk or getting hurt and damage entertaining counterfeits and “Ishmeals”. Instead of waiting on God. Why are we so quick to jump on the bandwagon at the first thing coming that “says what we want to hear” just because its well versed in language doesn’t always make it right to fit the bill. Once we open up and start entertaining it, not being covered under God…then God can’t always protect us…because it was our wills (which he will not supercede) that get us in trouble.
