The Rest of the Stroy

by annie keys  
6/01/2011 / Devotionals

One of the most popular Bible scripture stories is the one of Abraham becoming a father at the age of 100 (Genesis 12:1-25:11). Whenever this scripture story is taught, we marvel at God's faithfulness to fulfill His promises even when circumstances are impossible.

However, there is far more! The rest of the story is even more amazing! Many years later, after Sarah's death, Abraham went on to marry another woman, Keturahand then he FATHERED 6 MORE SONS! Abraham lived to be 175 years old and continued to be the "father of many nations"!

God's miracles don't just change things now; they continue to change our lives and the lives of others forever! Today's miracle is an answer to prayer; and often grows silent in the memory of our hearts. But God's faithfulness is like a ripple in a pond; continuing to move outward.

The next time we have a need, let's look back not only to past miracles but the long lasting effect of those miracles. God's miracles don't just change our lives now, they change "forever".

Genesis 25: 1-4 Abraham took another wife, whose name was Keturah. She bore him Zimran, Jokshan, Medan, Midian, Ishbak and Shuah. Jokshan was the father of Sheba and Dedan; the descendants of Dedan were the Asshurites, the Letushites and the Leummites. The sons of Midian were Ephah, Epher, Hanoch, Abida and Eldaah. All these were descendants of Keturah.

I'm a wife, mother, a grandmother and I love to write! I'm a retired Pastor's Secretary and a former Assistant Kid's church Pastor.

I write Children's material and devotions. I love to use 'real life', especially the exploits of children, to illustrate scriptural truth.
