Waiting or Wilting?

Abraham has grown - grown as a man of faith. And then, in his nomadic ways, settled near a powerful king, in Gerar, he stumbles. His besetting sin - that he cannot quite trust that God can make do without. Abraham taking matters into his own hands - rears its head - and he passes Sarah off as his sister, again (see Gen 12:10ff)!

And then, we remember that waiting for the promise of God can lead to us, too, wilting.The reminder is that the promises of God comes about, not because of what we bring to teh table, but because God himself is incredibly faithful, merciful and steadfast!
