We all want to live a long happy life. We want to see our children grow up and have children of their own. Abraham waited a long time to see the promises of God. He waited patiently, and at times not so patiently, yet God was faithful to His promise. God gives us the formula for a healthy life. But do we really want to follow this recipe? What if waiting is involved? What if we see another direction that seems to get to our dreams faster? We have to remember that God planned our entire life from first to last breath. He knows what’s best so He says “Trust the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight. Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord and shun evil. This will bring health to your body and nourishment to your bones” (Proverbs 3: 5-8).
