Hebrews 11:11 (AMP) – “Because of faith also Sarah herself received physical power to conceive a child, even when she was long past the age for it, because she considered [God] Who had given her the promise to be reliable and trustworthy and true to His word.”
God is able to perform anything according to His will when our faith is attached to it.
Even biological barriers such as age and sterility cannot confound it.
Sarah was certainly beyond the child bearing years at age 100 even by the standards of aging in the Old Testament.
In fact, even when she was in prime age and condition the bible says she was “barren”.
Let’s not make any mistakes here. The Word says she was finally able to conceive because of faith.
“BECAUSE OF FAITH” she received physical power to conceive.
Sarah based her faith upon the Word and will of God.
He wanted here to have a child and she would simply believe that in spite of the overwhelming evidence against that ever happening!
You see friends, that IS faith!
Conceiving goes way past child bearing.
What do you conceive today?
It could mean to take something into your mind to form a “concept”. It could mean to apprehend something in your mind and thoughts to understand it better.
Do you conceive of something in your life that you haven’t been able to bring to reality?
What do you want in life for you and your loved ones?
Do you see where verse 1 is so perfectly explained?
Faith is the substance of things hoped for (conceived in your mind).
In other words, what you hope for, when it is joined with faith (spiritual conception), it will birth (bring to reality) the very thing you are hoping for!
My friends, this teaching in the Word is so powerful. When we grasp and apply it miracles happen. Lives are changed and increased.
My suggestion is to read it over and over, especially verse 1, attach prayer to it, and meditate on it until you can put the principle into action so that your hopes spring alive into a present reality for you today!
Keepin’ it Real,
