Reflection on Romans 4:13-25

Scripture
Jesus was handed over to die because of our sins and he was raised to life to make us right with God.

Observation
God's promise to make Abraham the father of many nations was not based on Abraham's obedience. It was a promise, given as a free gift and received by faith.

God's promise of salvation is likewise given as a gift and received by faith and not by obedience to the Law of Moses.

Abraham's faith never wavered, and in fact kept growing. For this reason God counted him as righteous. If we have that kind of faith in Christ we will also be counted as righteous.

Application
Faith is trust in God's willingness to keep His promises even when, like Abraham, we have to wait for a long time.

God promises that we are saved through faith in Christ.

God promises that He has won the victory over evil.

God promises to heal our disease and infirmities.

Hold on to these promises for as long as it takes to receive them.

Prayer
Thank you Lord that you fulfil every promise you make. Help me to trust you especially when I have to wait. Amen.
