Day 43 Romans 4:18-21

“Against All Hope”

“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.” (Romans 4:18-21)
“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.” When everything around him seemed hopeless, Abraham stood fast on God’s promise to him. I know there are many of us who are in this kind of situation. We have envisioned or received the word of the Lord that tells us we are destine to do something great, but or current circumstances dictate differently.  “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.” Abraham was hundred years old and knew he wasn’t getting any younger and to add insult to injury, his wife Sarah was about the same age as well. Long pass child bearing years by all standards, Abraham believed in the Word of the Lord. In this life, we face many trails. I know for many of us, we are facing a situation where it seems impossible for God to work things out, but Glory be unto God who is worthy to be praised. God will make a way out of no way,  But it is by our Faith that we are judged.
“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.” Abraham did not waver in his Faith in the Lord. I know it is hard to praise him through the storm, but for those who are faithful, the promises that the Lord put into your life is waiting. Against all hope, we are called to have faith.
