Abraham never wavered in believing God’s promise. In fact, his faith grew stronger, and in this he brought glory to God.
God gave Abraham the promise of a son when he was seventy-five years old. Even though both he and Sarah were too old to have a child, faith rose in Abraham’s heart. Twenty-five long years went by during which he had plenty of reasons to give up on the promise, but the Scripture says, “In hope against hope Abraham believed.” He went from “I believe” to “I still believe.” He had a made-up mind, and when he was one hundred years old, he and Sarah had their son.
God is looking for “I still believe” people. Maybe you believed God’s promise but nothing’s changing, no doors have opened, you’ve been told no over and over. Thoughts tell you, “It’s too late. There’s no way. Let it go.” That’s all a part of the process. God didn’t give you the dream and not have a way to bring it to pass. He’s already taken into account all the setbacks, the delays, the betrayals, the closed doors. Keep believing, keep praising, keep thanking God that it’s on the way.
Prayer for Today
Father, thank You that You are my God and that’s reason enough to never waver in believing Your promises. Thank You that my faith can grow stronger through this. I am going to keep believing, keep praising, and thanking You for what’s on the way. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
