KEY VERSE: Genesis 21:1 (God’s faithfulness)
The Lord kept his word and did for Sarah exactly what he had promised.

Laughter is a blessing. Review all the ways I’ve been faithful and smile. Smile big. Rejoice freely. Be confident that I will always be with you and will consistently provide what you need. There’s no need to worry, and don’t use your time to doubt. Instead, sing, laugh, and relax, for I am your provider. Let your soul enjoy the calm. Just as I’ve provided in your past, I will do the same in your future. Breathe in and relax.

I want people to laugh in your presence, too. I want them to see you and be happy—I want them to enjoy being with you. I want your friends, family, and people you meet to have such trust in your character and faith in your promises that they take time to relax and enjoy life. I want them to be free to rest, knowing you are reliable and trustworthy, just as I am. 

God is aware of all your wants and needs. Pray boldly for them and thank God for his faithfulness, regardless of what response you get in prayer.
