I came across some verses tonight from Romans 4.
They read, “Against all hope, Abraham in hope believed and so became the father of many nations, just as it had been said to him, “So shall your offspring be.” Without weakening in his faith, he faced the fact that his body was as good as dead —since he was about a hundred years old —and that Sarah’s womb was also dead. Yet he did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God, being fully persuaded that God had power to do what he had promised.”
I don’t know what God has promised you or what you are waiting for or what you are facing in this life.
I don’t know your story or what you are up against that is challenging your faith in the promises of God.
I do know that I needed this reminder tonight.
We all need this reminder.
Abraham faced a promise that went against the facts of life. He and Sarah were old. very old. Too old for having children yet they clung to a promise.
A precious promise. The promise of a son. of a nation. of a heritage. a people.
They didn’t weaken. They didn’t waver.
Against all hope, in hope they believed.
Even when faced with impossibilities.
How often have we let situations or troubles or circumstances cause us to weaken in our faith or waver through unbelief?
When was the last time we felt FULLY persuaded that God’s promises were not only true but that God had the power to do what he has promised?
Let us live out these verses in our lives. Let us have the faith that Abraham had in our God.
