Scripture:   Romans (NIV) 4:18   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.” 

19 Without weakening in his faith, he faced the fact that his body was as good as dead—since he was about a hundred years old—and that Sarah’s womb was also dead.

20  Yet he did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God,

21 being fully persuaded that God had power to do what he had promised. 

Observation:   “Against all hope, Abraham in hope believed…!”  In considering his age (100) and the age of his wife, Sarah (90) there was no hope of any children, yet Abraham believed!   His hope was in God’s ability to keep his promises!  

Application:   When surrounding circumstances give me no hope, I still have hope.  I am “fully persuaded” that my God has the power to do what he has promised!  He is the ultimate Promise Keeper!  

Prayer:   Lord, I know I can trust you!   You are able to keep your promises!  Amen
