Daily D – Genesis 21:1-2
Howdy! And Happy New Year!
The Bible reading plan I am using this year is the YouVersion plan Bible Project: The Bible. I invite you to join me. You can learn more about the Bible Project here: https://bibleproject.com/
The Bible translation I will use this year is the New Living Translation. I will use the New International Version, the English Standard Version, the Christian Standard Bible, and The Message for comparison.
Who do you know who would benefit from these short devotionals? Send a sample using the sharing links in the banner at the top of this page. Add an invitation to join us on the journey. Let’s get to know God better and experience him daily. As you know, there are no financial solicitations, and there is nothing to buy.
If you would like for me and others to pray for you about anything at any time, feel free to email me: firstname.lastname@example.org
Genesis 21:1, 2 “The Lord kept his word and did for Sarah exactly what he had promised. She became pregnant, and she gave birth to a son for Abraham in his old age. This happened at just the time God had said it would.” (NLT)
1. God did what he said he would do.
2. God did what he said he would do when he said he would do it.
3. God did what he said he would do when he said he would do it and everyone laughed with joy.
Laughter is a gift from heaven.
Joy comes when we see God do what only he can do when he says it will be done.
I will live with a readiness to laugh from a place of deep joy.
Our Father, you are the Giver of All Good Things. Among your best gifts is laughter. Thank you for the joy of delighting with you in the wonders of this world. Laughter must be the natural language of heaven. Empower us to give and receive laughter today in all its beautiful dialects. Amen.

Psalm 139:17, 18 How precious are your thoughts about me, O God. They cannot be numbered! I can’t even count them; they outnumber the grains of sand! And when I wake up, you are still with me!
2 Corinthians 5:1-5 For we know that when this earthly tent we live in is taken down (that is, when we die and leave this earthly body), we will have a house in heaven, an eternal body made for us by God himself and not by human hands. We grow weary in our present bodies, and we long to put on our heavenly bodies like new clothing. For we will put on heavenly bodies; we will not be spirits without bodies. While we live in these earthly bodies, we groan and sigh, but it’s not that we want to die and get rid of these bodies that clothe us. Rather, we want to put on our new bodies so that these dying bodies will be swallowed up by life. God himself has prepared us for this, and as a guarantee he has given us his Holy Spirit.
1 Corinthians 10:13 The temptations in your life are no different from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you can endure.
