"Who against hope believed in hope, that he might become the father of many nations, according to that which was spoken, So shall thy seed be. And being not weak in faith, he considered not his own body now dead, when he was about an hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sarah's womb: He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God." romans 4:18-20
Each of us has petitions before the Father in prayer for Him to perform a sign and wonder in our life. Though they may all differ from one to another, it remains something that we ‘hope’ for. Like Abraham, we may find ourselves hoping against any sign of hope, yet we maintain steadfast in the things of God because we know He is able. We don’t know His methods or even His timing, but we know He is faithful to perform what He has promised.
This message is birthed from one of my own petitions that I brought before the Father in prayer. I honestly felt a sense of frustration with it. This situation looks so big in my eyes, and I found myself wondering how and when God was going to do it. Just then, the Holy Spirit spoke to me concerning the life of Abraham and reminded me of his testimony. After studying it, I was encouraged to keep on trusting God and waiting patiently for Him. Let this word bless you and make certain to share it with someone whom you know needs to hear it.
