God promised Abram many descendants. As the years passed, Abram and Sarai (whom God later renamed Abraham and Sarah in Genesis 17) began to doubt God’s promises. An accepted practice in the ancient Near East culture in that day was for maid servants to give birth to children who would have full rights as heirs.
“Is anything too hard for the LORD? I will return to you at the appointed time next year, and Sarah will have a son.” (Genesis 18:14, NIV)
