Read and Meditate on Today’s Scripture Union Daily Guide for Thursday 2nd June 2022. May the Lord bless you through His Word, Amen!


Topic: God is Faithful

Opening Prayer: Oh Lord, grant me divine guidance as I read and meditate on your word in Jesus name.

Scripture: Genesis 21:1‐21

Question(s) for Reflection
• What does the passage teach about God the Father, or God the Son or God the Holy Spirit?
• What truth is God revealing to me in this passage?

How do you feel when you finally receive something you have been expecting over a period of time? Abraham and Sarah had waited for the promised child for so long but after repeated promises, God finally fulfilled His promise (v.1). Note that Sarah conceived and gave birth to a son “at just the time God had said it would” (v.2). Waiting for answer to prayer can be tough.

We may be tempted to give up because the answer to our prayers had delayed, but when we finally receive the answer, it brings us joy and laughter. No wonder Abraham named the boy Isaac, which means laughter. When we find ourselves in situations of prolonged trials of faith and hopelessness, similar to that of Abraham and Sarah, let’s learn to keep believing God (Romans 4:18‐20), being rest assured that He is faithful, and He will fulfil His promises to us at His own time (Habakkuk 2:2‐3).

Observe that Ishmael (born by the scheming of Abraham and Sarah) had to be expelled so he will not interfere with God’s covenant promise (vs.8‐14). What can we learn from this? Holding on to the sinful nature can hinder the fulfilment of God’s promise in your life (Romans 8:2‐8).

For Further Study
See Galatians 4:21‐31 for clearer understanding of the spiritual dimension of this story.

Practice/Word Application
And so: We are justified by faith in Christ, and not by the works of the Law: for by the works of the Law shall no flesh be justified. Thank God for His redemption.

• Any new insight or reinforcement of what you already know?

Closing Prayer
• Pray to God for help, not to forfeit His promise, plan and purpose for your life.

Offer a prayer of faith in line with
1 Samuel 1:17; 1 Chronicles 10, 11; Mark 1

PRAYER OF SALVATIONA MINUTE PRAYER COULD SAVE YOU “O Lord God, I believe with all my heart in Jesus Christ, Son of the living God. I believe He died for me and God raised Him from the dead.

Thank you Lord for saving my soul! I’m now a child of God. Hallelujah!” Congratulations! You are Born Again... Get closer to God by reading your BIBLE and worshiping with other believers.
