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.” (Romans 4:18 NIV)
What does this mean? Against all hope, Abraham in hope….
It means that even though everything in his life seemed to indicate otherwise ,Abraham believed that God could keep His promise.
It also means that he kept living his life, everyday, not looking at the impossibility of the promise but in the possibility of God.
God initiated it, spoke it and would fulfill it.
Not because of Abraham’s faith but because of God’s faithfulness.
