Romans 4:18 Who against hope believed in hope, that he might become the father of many nations; according to that which was spoken, So shall thy seed be.
Abraham is the example for our faith in this story. He hoped and believed in hope when there appeared to be no hope. You do have to understand that the hope he believed in was God’s Word. God told him that he would be the father of many.
Abraham wasn’t believing in something foolish. This wasn’t a hollywood hope. It was a concrete hope. It was hoping in what God had told him. That is the kind of hope you want to have. Find out and know what the Word of God says then believe it. When others say it will not happen still believe. When it seems hard to believe, still believe.
That is faith. Faith is believing, expecting, hoping that exactly what God said will come true and it will.
This is not positive thinking and making something happen out of nothing. It is knowing what God said and believing it!
You have the Word of God and you can believe that God will do what He said He will do. He does not lie and He does not change!
