God promised Abraham and Sarah a child. This promise didn’t come fast enough for them so they took matters into their own hands and birthed and Ishmael.

Birthing an Ishmael is when we don’t pray or wait on God and we step out of His perfect will and plan for our life. This story teaches us many valuable lessons about making important decisions and choices in our life and what happens when we ignore God’s wisdom for the direction in our lives. If you have already birthed an Ishmael, all is not lost. Listen to what God instructs us to do.
