Word of the Day:God’s Promise
In Romans 4 Paul is talking about Abraham and how he hoped against hope in the face of impossible circumstances. Abraham was a man with simple faith in the faithfulness of his God.
God had promised Abraham a son to be born by his 90 year old wife, Sarah. Though Abraham himself was nearing 100 years old, and his aged body was hardly in the right condition to have children, he believed what God had promised.
Abraham didn’t waver in his faith but was fully persuaded that God had the power to do all that He promised. Always remember that when God makes a promise to us, He has the power to perform what He has promised, no matter how impossible the circumstances are!
James 1:12 “Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him.”
