I can’t do it! I can’t live the Christian life God calls me to live. Our Heavenly Father understands that. He knew that Abraham couldn’t fulfill His vision for his life, and He knows we’re not able. So what is our part in living for God? Faith. Faith that God is able. Romans 4:19-21 explains the importance of our faith in God. “Without becoming weak in faith he (Abraham) 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.” That’s it! Abraham nailed it. God’s calling – for him to have a son when he was not physically able, but trusting God to do it, is also how we can live. Note how the verse says Abraham grew strong in faith. We may feel weak in faith today, but we can grow stronger.
Heavenly Father, we PRAISE YOU, that You are ABLE to perform what You have promised in Your Word.
