Romans 4:20–21 – He did not waver at the promise of God through unbelief, but was strengthened in faith, giving glory to God, and being fully convinced that what He had promised He was also able to perform.

Abraham was not a double–minded man. That’s the whole thought here. He looked away from his circumstances to the promise of God. He believed the promise, in spite of the fact that the circumstances nullified it. He put confidence in the promise because of the One who gave the promise, therefore giving praise to God. You must understand, man was created to glorify God, unfortunately by disobedience he did the opposite. And, my friend, the only way you can glorify God is to believe Him.


Why is it that we look more often at the tough situations we are in rather than the powerful God we serve? Have you not found God to be completely faithful to His promises all of the time? If you take a moment to think about it, you will discover, He has been faithful to you. Your challenge this week is to bring every thought captive to the authority of Christ (2 Corinthians 10:5). To stop yourself from worrying about what you are going through and lean on Him for strength to endure what you are going through. To encourage yourself to trust Him for the final outcome. To stand firm in the promise that He is with you and that He will not abandon you. Ask the Lord to help you with your unbelief and increase your faith in Him to complete the work that He is doing in your heart.
