Against all hope…

Romans 4v18-21

“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.”

This is continuation to the post published yesterday. It is about faith and how we apply it. A great example: Abraham!

We read about his faith in Romans chapter 4 and what happened due to his faith. We know the story through Old Testament as well as the New. What is important to look at is how it is analysed in Romans 4:

  • Against all hope
  • in hope he believed
  • without weakening in his faith
  • he faced the fact
  • he did not weaver
  • he was strengthened in his faith
  • gave glory to God
  • persuaded that God had power

If we look for a framework of how to apply our faith on our requests to God Almighty, I believe that we have it as described above.
