“Then Sarah denied, saying, I laughed not; for she was afraid. And he said, Nay; but thou didst laugh.”
She lied out of fear when the Lord called her out for laughing in doubt of what He had said He would do.
“And the LORD said unto Abraham, Wherefore did Sarah laugh, saying, Shall I of a surety bear a child, which am old? Is any thing too hard for the LORD? At the time appointed I will return unto thee, according to the time of life, and Sarah shall have a son.”
She did not know when this would happen.
She had to wait.
“Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.”
“For since the beginning of the world men have not heard, nor perceived by the ear, neither hath the eye seen, O God, beside thee, what he hath prepared for him that waiteth for him.”
Waiting sometimes causes us to fear the unknown.
Sarah also serves as our example that even when waiting makes us fearful, God always has a plan to work out what is best for us.
“Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.”
“What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee.”
There is no need to fear when we trust in Him.
