Isaac’s Birth: A Promise Fulfilled

Genesis 21:1-7


• Abraham “is the father of all who believe” Rom 4:11

• God promised to bless Abraham with land and many descendents

• Focus on promise of descendents (Gen 21:1-7)

I. The Problem & Promise

• Gen 15:1-6

• Abram was rich, but childless

• How are we like Abram?

II. The Human Solution

• Gen 16:1-6, 15-16

• A reasonable solution that brought many problems

• Similar solutions to our problems

III. The Divine Solution

• Gen 17:15-22, 18:9-15, 21:6

• God’s sense of humor

• Where God brings laughter today


  1. We need faith to take us from problem to promise (Gen 15:6)

  2. We need discernment to know God’s will

  3. We need patience to wait on God’s timing (Gen 21:2)
