#1319 – I Believe

Good morning people who trust God’s Word,

Romans 4:18-25 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. This is why “it was credited to him as righteousness.” The words “it was credited to him” were written not for him alone, but also for us, to whom God will credit righteousness–for us who believe in Him who raised Jesus our Lord from the dead. He was delivered over to death for our sins and was raised to life for our justification.

Do you trust and believe that God can and desires to do the impossible in your life and through your life?

Abraham did, and it was credited to his account as righteousness.

It was impossible for Abraham and Sarah to conceive a child. Abraham was far too old and Sarah’s womb – an important ingredient for conception to take place – was dead; as in, there was no life and no chance to reproduce life.

But God! But God!! But God!!!

Now hear me for a second: if Abraham had not believed, things would have been different.

The key to God’s miraculous life-giving power in and through our lives is our faith; our simple and unshakeable faith in an unshakeable God.

So do you believe?
