But that’s the nature of faith—it believes even when everything around it screams not to believe!
Romans 4 contains Paul’s description of Abraham’s faith. The man believed that God would give him and his wife a son even though they were far beyond childbearing years.
“…he did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God, being fully persuaded that God had power to do what he had promised” (Romans 5:20, 21)
Like my little Gerber, Abraham’s faith persevered despite every evidence that what he believed would happen was impossible. That faith was rewarded by the God Who specializes in the impossible.
If I take a look at my faith today, what would it look like?
I hope it looks like a Gerber. What does yours look like?
