Here we have a couple that have most likely faced opposition from their extended family, they knew they couldn’t count on any official siding with them.
They knew they couldn’t start and trouble or rock the boat. They really had nothing but their trust in the Lord.
They simply lived their lives for God and continued in their obedience.
Not only that, they went years of being faithful with unanswered prayer.
They were faithful and dedicated and God had not answered their prayers for a child.
How long have we prayed for something while being faithful and dedicated and nothing?
