Promise Already Kept

No distrust made him (Abraham) waver concerning the promise of God, but he grew strong in his faith as he gave glory to God, being fully convinced that God was able to do what he had promised. Romans 4:13-25   Sometimes the things we desire seem to take forever. Consider Abraham who was 100 years old before Isaac was born. Every day given is a gift and our faith should make us stronger as we breathe in the gratitude of God’s blessing and exhale with praise of his everlasting peace. Abraham’s experience is a lesson in waiting with the confidence that the God of this universe keeps promises. We have a tendency to want to hurry things along. Remember Hagar and Ishmael? Let’s not create more drama than we need. As we wait on God, let’s begin to walk with him as well. WWYD today?

Therefore his faith ‘was reckoned to him as righteousness.’ Now the words, ‘it was reckoned to him’, were written not for his sake alone, but for ours also. It will be reckoned to us who believe in him who raised Jesus our Lord from the dead, who was handed over to death for our trespasses and was raised for our justification. Romans 4:13-25
