I Hope by Andrea Marino
Only the God of Abraham gives life to the dead and calls things into existence that do not exist. There is rest in simply believing what God says.
Abraham, the father of nations, believed Him. The extent of Abraham’s belief was such that he was ‘hoping against hope’. God told him that, although at the age of 100 years old, his wife (90 years old), well past child-bearing age, he (Abraham) would become the father of nations, his descendants outnumbering the sand on a beach.
If ever something looked impossible, that was it. But nothing is impossible for Abraham’s God to do.
Without having the Scripture to lean on at the time, Abraham believed. The world may have changed, but Abraham’s God has not. He is the Lord, Who conquered the grave, having taken on flesh and spilling His own blood for the remission of all sin.
Now faith is the reality of what is hoped for, the proof of what is not seen. While I am agitated by the ones who prosper in doing evil, I hope in all the promises of God, waiting expectantly for Him to move on His people’s behalf.
God protects the lives of the godly, and will deliver them from the wickedness of this world system. One day, evil will be no more.
In this I hope. My salvation comes from the Lord. In Him I am glad.Audible Gift Memberships
