“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.””
Romans 4:18 NIV
Abraham had hope because of his belief.￼ Even though he was close to 100 years old, and Sarah’s womb was closed, he believed Gods promise to make hiM the father of many nations. By human standards this was “against hope” or against all odds that Abraham believed. In this same faith, Abraham obeyed God’s calling to leave his comfortable life behind and face an unknown future.
James 2:26 tells us faith without works is dead, and Abraham’s faith was demonstrated by his obedience. Has God ever given you a message or instructions you found difficult to believe or irrational to follow? How did you respond? When we try to project our finite, human understanding onto our infinite God, we land in the cesspool of worldly reason. 🚦
