Wrong option-1

Genesis 21:9 “And Sarah saw the son of Hagar the Egyptian, which she had born unto Abraham, mocking.”
Today we want to consider the other side of not waiting for the set time.
As we saw two days back, it is possible Abraham discussed with Sarah that God said Isaac would come when he is hundred years old and Sarah ninety. But they both doubted God and opted for an alternative and the alternative was terrible and heartbreaking.
Their alternative was Hagar.
Genesis 16:1 “Now Sarai Abram’s wife bare him no children: and she had an handmaid, an Egyptian, whose name [was] Hagar.”
Genesis 16:2 “And Sarai said unto Abram, Behold now, the LORD hath restrained me from bearing: I pray thee, go in unto my maid; it may be that I may obtain children by her. And Abram hearkened to the voice of Sarai.”
Genesis 16:4 “And he went in unto Hagar, and she conceived: and when she saw that she had conceived, her mistress was despised in her eyes.”
It will shock you to know that the name Hagar simply means “something that never settles”, “flight”, it also means “temporary!”
That is indeed appalling. When we move before the set time we end up with a temporary measure as opposed to God’s permanent blessing.
Hagar is temporary meaning she will exist only for a period or periods of time. Her existence is only for a short time; she is simply transient and ephemeral. You cannot rely on something temporal. Hear this:
2 Corinthians 4:18 “While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen [are] temporal; but the things which are not seen [are] eternal.”
Friend, never rely on temporary things because it will fail unannounced. Don’t judge every situation by your two physical eyes, go spiritual and see the invisible!
To be continued…
