10 Years of Waiting

Genesis 16:1-3
Now Sarai Abram's wife bare him no children: and she had an handmaid, an Egyptian, whose name was Hagar.

And Sarai said unto Abram, Behold now, the LORD hath restrained me from bearing: I pray thee, go in unto my maid; it may be that I may obtain children by her.

And Abram hearkened to the voice of Sarai. And Sarai Abram's wife took Hagar her maid the Egyptian, after Abram had dwelt ten years in the land of Canaan, and gave her to her husband Abram to be his wife.

When listening to your wife is a bad idea: when she's losing faith after a decade and starts taking matters of fulfilling God's Word into her own hands.

So Sarah conceived and bore a son to Abraham in his old age, at the appointed time of which God had spoken to him.
