Under Gods Command

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.” 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.

Abraham never doubted that God would fulfill his promise.  Abraham’s life was marked by mistakes, sins, and failures as well as by wisdom and goodness, but he consistently trusted God.  His faith was strengthened by the obstacles he face, and his life was an example of faith in action.  If he had looked only at his own resources for subduing Canaan and founding a nation, he would have given up in despair.  But Abraham looked to God, obeyed him, and waited for God to fulfill his word.

Lets Bring it Home: Are we waiting for God to fulfill his word in the issues of our lives, or are we only looking at our own resources for solving the problems in our life?  Have we been strengthen with the obstacles that we have faced in our life?  Are we putting Faith into action, or are we doing the same old thing, and leaning toward our own understanding?
