Never Too Old

As the Countess of Huntington lay dying, she said, “My work is completed, and I have nothing to do but to go to my Father.” Sarah, a woman of faith and courage whose story is found in the Old Testament, believed that her work was nearing completion. One day God spoke to her husband who was 100 years old and said to him, “Sarah will give you a son!” When Sarah heard this, she laughed because she was 90 years old. God had a very special plan for her in her old age even if she did not think it possible. God knew that her work was not done. And just as God said, she gave birth to a son and named him Isaac. Sarah is an example of someone who trusted God, and became known as a woman of great faith.

There are days when each of us comes to the conclusion that our best days have passed us by. But God never comes to that conclusion. His Word reminds us that the best is always in front of us and that we can always do more for Him and through Him. Our age does not matter. What matters is for us to always believe that God has something great for us to do.

Prayer: Father, I want to accomplish all that You have called me to do. Give me a Sarah-like faith to believe that each day brings a new beginning to serve You: in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Scripture for Today: Hebrews 11:8-11
