Romans 4:3, Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.
God was talking to a 75-year-old man about having a baby. The testimony about Abraham is that he believed God.
Genesis 12:4 – Abram is 75 years old
Genesis 16:16 – Abram is 86 years old
Genesis 17:1 – Abram is 99 years old
“God is trying to do something amazing in your life, but it requires that you believe Him.”—Pastor Billy R. Johnson
Start Believing When God Starts to Speak
God starts the conversation in the past tense. He causes something that does not exist as though it did. He already determined the outcome before it happens so when He starts speaking, you start believing. When the enemy starts talking, don’t believe him.
“What has He declared about you that you need to start believing?”—Pastor Billy R. Johnson
Continue Believing In the Face of Adverse Circumstances
(Romans 4:18, NLT & MSG)
Keep hoping even when you don’t see a reason to hope. When everything doesn’t line up to be favorable in your circumstance, believe anyway. In the midst of difficulty begin to praise God. Give glory to God! Say what God has said irrespective of how you feel. Put pressure on your mouth.
Keep Believing Until You Are Fully Convinced of God’s Ability
You will began see God from a different perspective when the circumstances weigh in heavy but as you praise God and thank Him, you are strengthened in faith. You’ll begin to see God from the perspective of who He is and that He can handle whatever you are going through. He can bring to pass every promise He has given you. Abraham was fully convinced that God had the strength, power and the capacity and He would surely make the situation happen.
