There are some words in this week’s Torah portion, Vayera, that are a source of joy, belief and faith for me. “And G‑d remembered Sarah as He had said, and G‑d did for Sarah as He had spoken. And Sarah conceived, and bore Abraham a son in his old age, at the appointed time of which G‑d had spoken.”

Why do these verses give me so much strength? How do they fill me with joy, belief and trust?

For starters, we are not supposed to be here; our entire existence is a miracle. These verses express how Abraham and Sarah are blessed with a baby, though both were unable to have children. On top of that, he was 100 and she was 90—far past the age of childbirth. G‑d gave Sarah youth and opened her womb to conceive. To Abraham, he gave the ability to sire children. The birth of Isaac, our forefather, is only by miracle.

I could only imagine Sarah’s joy when she recognized that she was pregnant after all this time, her anticipation for giving birth, and finally, holding her baby in her arms. Just the thought fills me with joy.

In G‑d, we can trust; in G‑d, we can believe. G‑d does miracles; He makes promises and does what He says. One can never lose hope because G‑d can and will do miracles for you, just as He did for Abraham and Sarah.

He will also keep His promise to send Moshiach, and take us out of this long and dark exile.

The time has come.
