“But Sarai was barren; she had no child.”
She was Abram’s wife.
“And Abram and Nahor took them 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 the father of Iscah.”
She and her husband went forth with a few relatives from Ur of the Chaldees toward the land of Canaan.
She followed her husband when God commanded that they get out of their country, away from their relatives, and into a land they had never seen.
“Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will shew thee:”
She must have had faith to follow the man she loved into a new land.
She and her husband were given a promise.
“And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.”
Her husband was promised a great nation of people, yet she had no child.
“And the LORD appeared unto Abram, and said, Unto thy seed will I give this land: and there builded he an altar unto the LORD, who appeared unto him.”
She must have been confused before faith later set in.
She would have several difficult situations occur that proved God’s promise to be impossible.
Sarai serves as our example that when God makes a promise He keeps it. Through it may not make sense to us, or even seem possible at the time, if He says it, He will do it.
