TOPIC: Hope Against Hope
TEXT: Romans 4:13-25(NKJV)
Daily Fountain Devotional 24 April 2022 MESSAGE
Abraham received the promise that he would be the heir of the world and he believed it. His belief was credited to him as righteousness; hence, it was not because of anything he did or would have done – just simple faith in what God had said. Though simple, faith must be ready to have hope in hopeless situations. Judging from his prevailing circumstances, Abraham would not have believed he could bear a child again, but because he trusted God whom he believed could raise the dead and call into existence things that were not, he staggered not at the promise but was strong in faith.
Now, the righteousness credited to Abraham as a result of his belief was not credited to him alone, but also to us once we believe in Him that raised Jesus Christ from death. Ours is just to believe that for our transgressions, He died on the cross and was raised for our justification – that simple! We should not depend on anything we think we can do.
PRAYER: Heavenly Father, please help me to always believe in you and what you can do, come what may. Help me to always trust in Your word, Amen!
