Both their names were changed
Sarah started to doubt.
God had to change their way of thinking.
However when Abraham and Sarah decided to believe God then it came to pass.
Changing the way, we think and understand things is never easy it took Abraham and Sarah time to adjust and after several mistakes and doing things their own way they finally trusted God and what He said came to pass. However, there are always difficulties and challenges on our journey and if we choose the word when these arise and decree and declare them then God will take us through every battle His way when we just trust that He really is fighting our battles.
