In hope he believed against hope

“Romans 4:18 – In hope he believed against hope” This passage is talking about Abraham after he was promised by God to be the father of great nations and he was about 100 years old- His wife Sarah was barren and old as well,,, what physical worldly hope could there be to father nations at his age- But he believed God and In hope he believed against hope,,, that anything is possible with hope given by God against the impossible worldly hope which is based on our own limited perspective- Have you ever had a hope, knowing, deep inside, that it was impossible to achieve with our own devices- I had one just this week- I experienced, what seemed to be, a hopeless situation at my work and for my family – It was a gut wrenching time and I couldn’t see any possible positive outcome- Foul Weather had entered my life- It was a time when I had absolutely no where to turn but to God- Looking back, this developed from years of my living style and all came together with one event- I was truly hopeless and lost as to what I could do, a place I had not been before- I turned to reading the bible and praying for peace- I came across this verse “In hope he believed against hope” I knew Jesus had shown me the way,,, He said “Larry you must hope and believe in me for the answer and solution even when you cannot see any hope” ,, Gods Hope against my hope- Well the outcome was beyond what I could hope and clearly showed me that God is in control if you hope and believe in him- He also taught me a very valuable lesson about how I was living my life – I pray that I can make the changes that I know I need to make to follow Jesus and glorify him in everything I do – Thank You Jesus
