In seeking first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, we must discover and declare who God is.

One of the men and women that comes to mind when thinking about who God is, is Abram and Sarai (Abraham and Sarah)

When we first meet them in Genesis we are told this:

“Now these are the generations of Terah. Terah fathered Abram, Nahor, and Haran; and Haran fathered Lot. Haran died in the presence of his father Terah in the land of his kindred, in Ur of the Chaldeans. And Abram and Nahor took wives. The name of Abram’s wife was Sarai, and the name of Nahor’s wife, Milcah, the daughter of Haran the father of Milcah and Iscah. Now Sarai was barren; she had no child. Terah took Abram his son and Lot the son of Haran, his grandson, and Sarai his daughter-in-law, his son Abram’s wife, and they went forth together from Ur of the Chaldeans to go into the land of Canaan, but when they came to Haran, they settled there.”
‭‭Genesis‬ ‭11:27-31‬ ‭ESV‬‬

In chapter 12 we learn that the LORD says to Abram go to a land that I will show you, and that He will make a great nation through him, and in him all the families of the earth will be blessed. Abram basically responds with an “okay”, and places his faith in the God who spoke to him. As we continue to read, God promises Abram that he is going to have a son with his wife Sarai. You know, the woman we met in chapter 11 and she was described as barren.

You really should read the account in Genesis for yourself but I’ll spoil the ending for you… God keeps his promise and they actually have a son, Isaac!

Sister, did you hear me? God made it so this barren woman gave her 100 year old husband a son. The God of the impossible makes impossible possible. Read that again. God can be trusted and sought after because not only is he a promise maker, but he comes through on his promises. So when he tells us to seek him first, we can confidently do just that; knowing just who we are seeking.
