Hanging Tough

Without becoming weak in faith he contemplated his own body, now as good as dead since he was about a hundred years old, and the deadness of Sarah’s womb; yet, with respect to the promise of God, he did not waver in unbelief but grew strong in faith, giving glory to God, and being fully assured that what God had promised, He was able also to perform. Romans 4:19-21

As we wander through life’s wildernesses, without growing weak or wavering in our faith, we honestly assess our predicament. Even though our situation may appear hopeless, in faith we don’t worry about his provision, but wonder how God will deliver on his promise.

In hope against hope he believed. Romans 4:18

Our wandering is always within the limits set by a sovereign God. The enemy wants us to waffle and wilt. The adage that the Lord won’t give us more than we can bear is not biblical. He wants us in “hope against hope” situations!

The more dire our circumstances the more miraculous his deliverances will be. For “God is to us a God of deliverances; and to God the Lord belong escapes from death.” Psalm 68:20
