As Good as Dead

How many would like to have a baby when they are in their 100s? Not many of us I'm sure,but in this case this child was so wanted!!! Abraham was promised that his descendants would number as many as the stars in the sky and this dude was OLD!!! And his wife Sarah also way past child bearing age.

I LOVE how the Bible talks about his faith during this time.

'His faith did not fail, although he was well aware that his impotent body, nearly after 100 years, was as good as dead and that Sarah's womb too, was dead.
In spite of ALL this, his faith in Gods promise did not falter.
In fact his faith grew as he gave glory to God because he was supremely confident that GOD WOULD DELIVER ON HIS PROMISE.'

I love how real this is, he was very aware of all that was against him, it was glaringly obvious, yet as he gave glory to God his confidence grew!!!
What in your life is as good as dead, what do you see in your life daily that seems to be without hope? Give it over to God and then give glory to God knowing He can do only what He can do and make the impossible possible!!
We all have areas of a struggle and difficult things we face, DON'T GIVE UP!!
Keep on the road with Jesus because in Him there is SO MUCH HOPE!!!Keep on the road with Jesus because in Him there is SO MUCH HOPE!!! We too can become supremely confident! I don't know about you but that paints an incredibly hopeful picture!!
