Scripture: Genesis 20:6-7
One more time Sarah ends up in another king’s house or harem. Once again I am sure that both Abraham and Sarah were doing their part and they sensed praying for covenant intervention was their responsibility! It is interesting to see what kind of intervention God gave them. Verses 6 and 7 of Genesis 20 state, “And God said to him in a dream, “Yes, I know that you did this in the integrity of your heart. For I also withheld you from sinning against Me; therefore I did not let you touch her. Now therefore, restore the man’s wife; for he is a prophet, and he will pray for you and you shall live. But if you do not restore her, know that you shall surely die, you and all who are yours.” God intervened by dream to alert Abimelech that if he continued holding Sarah, he was a dead man. Is God really willing to intervene to that level? Both the Old Testament and the New say that He is. The real question is, are we as the church, willing to step up and prepare our heart to do our part in the last days.
