“When everything was hopeless, Abraham believed anyway, deciding to live not on the basis of what he saw he couldn’t do but on what God said he would do.”Romans 4:17-18 MSG
Dare to trust God wherever you are and in whatever you are facing.
Even if you’re feeling hopeless.
Stay on the journey.
Though everything in Abraham’s life seemed to indicate otherwise, he chose to focus on the power of God and not on the impossibility of the promise God had given him.
I am sure that there were times that Abraham barely believed and struggled with massive doubt. I am sure that there were days that he was holding on to a thread of hope, he was human.
God will not take away your humanity or your emotions.
His plan is to work through both.
God has called you to trust Him, lean on Him and rely on Him as you walk the road before you.
Stay on the road.
Walk forward with the confidence that you may not know where you are going, but God does.
His promises come with His power.
Power to base your faith on what God can do, not on what you can see.
Hold on, my friend, you may have only had a thread of hope but in Christ, that thread is stronger than what you face and will hold against that which you fear.
