My Foot Slips: Can We Wait?

Part 5 of 6. In these final verses, we see the epilogue to the story. Hagar returns to Abram’s household and she has a son just as God said. Abram listens to God and names the child Ishmael. The last verse reminds us that Abram has now eighty-six years and has been in Canaan for eleven years. The promised child has not come and Abram will have to wait. The question is can he wait for the promise? Can we wait for the promises?
