The time of Passover indicates to us that God will fulfill His promises to His people. The Passover in Egypt was celebrated while the Hebrews were yet in bondage. They had not yet been released from slavery, but there was a celebration at hand of their impending freedom. In our own lives, we must celebrate and worship the Lord in the midst of trials. We expect His deliverance and the arrival of the fulfillment of what His Word promises us. Jesus and His victory on the cross is worthy of our praise and rejoicing regardless of what we are facing. Let us not turn back from what God has spoken over our lives even if we don’t yet see everything falling into place. Jesus is our Passover, and He is the author and the finisher of our faith.
And He said, “I will certainly return to you according to the time of life, and behold, Sarah your wife shall have a son.”

And the Lord said to Abraham, “Why did Sarah laugh, saying, ‘Shall I surely bear a child, since I am old?’ Is anything too hard for the Lord? At the appointed time I will return to you, according to the time of life, and Sarah shall have a son.”
But Sarah denied it, saying, “I did not laugh,” for she was afraid.
And He said, “No, but you did laugh!”
