Man's heart plans his path but the Lord directs his steps.Abram lied about Sarai to save his life even after he had been called by God. The soveriegn God forgives Abram's sin and plagued Pharoah and his household because of Sarai; so much so that Pharoah called Abram and rebuked him. We can therefore say that through the plagues God revealed to Pharoah that Abram was Sarai's husband in the same way today God will revealed His commnds and /or messages through the Rauch Hakodesh (Holy Spirit).

Please note that in fact Sarai was Abrams half -sister, but he twist the fact that she was also his wife.
