Be Strong and Do Not Waiver in Unbelief
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, NIV).
Abraham was known as a man of great faith. Without his faith, the history of Israel would be a different history. When God made promises to Abraham, even when those promises made absolutely no sense to him, He trusted in the Lord and stood on God’s Word. In doing so, he became the “Father of Faith”.
Throughout the Bible, God’s promises are recorded all over the pages of both the Old and New Testaments. When God speaks to you, will you be willing to walk out in faith and stand on the Words penned centuries ago? If you are unsure of what those are, I invite you to take a look at just a few by going to http://www.scripturepromises.com/promises.html.
When you are called (if you have received Christ, then you have been called), you must learn to drown out the fears and confusion that the enemy of God throws at you. We are to quote the promises of God and stand in faith that God’s Word has power, His promises stand firm, and remember that the creation is never greater than the creator. May the Lord strengthen and encourage you today in whatever you might face. Stand firm in your faith and never forget that God does not break His promises.
Be blessed in all you do!
Your brother in Christ,
