Scripture: “No unbelief made him waver concerning the promise of God, but he grew strong in his faith as he gave glory to God, fully convinced that God was able to do what he had promised.” Romans 4:20, 21

Observation: WOW! In the midst of the discouragement of growing older and his own wife’s inability to conceive and bear a child, Abraham never wavered in his faith and belief in the promise that God made to him. If any man had reason to lose hope or grow discouraged it was Abraham because of the length of time that he had to wait for the promise of God to be fulfilled, but instead he grew closer to God and gained strength.

Application: It is so easy to blame God and fall away when things do not go as we hope in our lives. Even when we believe that God has ‘promised’ us something and then it takes longer to play it self out than we anticipate, we waver in our commitment and begin to question God. Let us all look to the example of Abraham who never wavered or doubted the promises that God had made to him

Prayer: Father help me, when things get difficult, to never waver in my commitment to you and to grow stronger in my faith and belief in the promised of God.
