faith like Abraham

God showed me a cool promise the other day, which I can’t help but pass along to you. Paul is writing about Abraham in Romans 4, and this is what he says about him:

“Yet, with respect to the promise of God [that he would be the father of a great nation, and have a son in his very old age – kind of a big deal], he did not waiver in unbelief, but grew strong in faith, giving glory to God and being fully assured that what God had promised, He was also able to perform.” Romans 4:20-21


The challenge for me:

  1. Not to waiver in unbelief – will God provide, and does He have a plan for my life? Yes!
  2. grow strong in faith – can I be certain of what I hope for, even in this world of uncertainty? Yes!
  3. give glory to God – even when I don’t know what’s going on? Yes!
  4. be assured that God will keep and carry out his promises to His children – Does He know what is best for me? Yes, and He has always been faithful, and He will be again….and again….and again…amen!
