An awesome promise of God we found in Genesis chapter 12 “The Lord had said to Abram, “Go from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you. 2 “I will make you into a great nation, and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing.[a]3 I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.”[b].
The Lord commands Abram to leave his country to go on an as yet undesignated land, promising him that He will make of him a great nation and a blessing to all peoples, and Abram goes in faith

God backed it His promise. As human when we promise to someone we use our authority and we did efforts to make it complete our promise and sometimes we are fail. God is not human, God can’t break his word. And because his word cannot change, the promise is likewise unchangeable. I was thinking why God made this promise to Abraham, of course there was more people on the earth and Almighty God is full of love and mercy for everyone. What was special in Abraham which convinced God to make a great promise with him? After gathering my thoughts, if we read in early chapters of Genesis we learnt about the righteousness of God and few of our ancestors followed God and His way of righteousness, most of them followed Satan and his way of unrighteousness.

Sarah obviously had a key role to play in this plan. Abraham could never become the patriarch of a great nation if she did not first become mother to his offspring. She was surely aware of the Lord’s promises to Abraham. She certainly would have longed to see those promises fulfilled. As long as she remained childless, however, the sense that everything somehow hinged on her must have pressed on her like a great burden on her
