Why is it His Fault?

Leave a comment


Now Sarai, Abram’s wife, had borne him no children. But she had an Egyptian slave named Hagar; so she said to Abram, “The Lord has kept me from having children. Go, sleep with my slave; perhaps I can build a family through her.”

Abram agreed to what Sarai said. So after Abram had been living in Canaan ten years, Sarai his wife took her Egyptian slave Hagar and gave her to her husband to be his wife. He slept with Hagar, and she conceived.

When she knew she was pregnant, she began to despise her mistress.  Then Sarai said to Abram, “You are responsible for the wrong I am suffering. I put my slave in your arms, and now that she knows she is pregnant, she despises me. May the Lord judge between you and me.” Genesis 16:1-5 New International Version

When Sari nagged Abram to have sex with her slave to have a child and when the slave became pregnant she lorded it over Sari. Then Sari blamed Abram.

Why was it his fault?

Was she not the one that did not have faith in Jehovah and decided to take matters into her own hands?  Was it not her that constantly nagged Abram to impregnate the slave even though she was told that the blessed child would come from her womb?

When she paid the consequences she blamed someone else.

How many times do we do that?

We do not have faith in Jehovah or patience with Him and take matters into our own hands. When things go wrong we always find someone else to blame.

KEEP YOUR HEART

The mantra of every narcissist is : “This is not my fault, it is your fault!”  Joseph- Anthony: Green

It could be in looking for a marriage partner, looking for employment or a place to live but we always need to take it to Jehovah in prayer first, wait for His reply second and finally to be obedient to His guidance when He answers.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Shalom (God of peace) grant me the wisdom to always be willing to accept reasonability for my reckless actions and to have the wisdom to take the necessary action needed to rectify my mistake so that there is peace with You, my nieghbour and in my spirit. I meekly request this in the name of He who helped Peter become right with the Master on the seashore Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

After faithfully serving the Lord in China for ten years as a teacher I have been called home to care for my aged mother who has numerous disabilities. As well I regularly do volunteer work visiting seniors in a seniors home. I love being in nature. I say the closer we get to nature the more we see Jehovah. We are blessed in this area with many amazing, easy to ride bicycle trails on old railroad lines that takes us all over Southern Ontario.
