Thursday – Letters
“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
I can relate to Abraham. Actually, I had it easy compared to him and others.
Our best friends had two children but then tragically lost their third in a late term miscarriage. About a year later, they came to us saying that they were thinking of trying again but were praying we would have a child first.
Okay, great. After ten years with no luck, we’d given up hope. But they hadn’t.
Our Felicia turns 24 this year. Their Gabriel is just a month and a half younger.
Abraham and Sarah had to wait decades longer than us. He had been promised that he would be a father of nations. There were many times that he had given up hope of that dream.
But he hadn’t given up faith in God. And that faith preceded Him becoming father to many nations.
Are you in a season of waiting?
Are you tempted to give up hope?
God will fulfill all His promises to you in His best timing.
