God gets the glory

Ok, so I was reading in Genesis and for the first time in my 29+ years(ha) I noticed that the wives of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob were all barren. Coincidence…. I think not. Of course I knew about Sarah and have read and heard that story many times, but never did I notice that Rebekah and Rachel were also barren. God’s promise to Abraham was that his offspring would be as numerous as the stars, so why on “earth” would God choose three barren women to be the wives of the men that God chose to fulfill His promise through – can’t help but think that He wanted to get all the Glory and make sure that man knows He will always fulfill His promises in His way and in His time so the world will look to Him – the author and finisher of our faith!
