Romans 4

1 What shall we say then that Abraham our father, as pertaining to the flesh, hath found?

2 For if Abraham were justified by works, he hath whereof to glory; but not before God.

3 For what saith the scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness.

4 Now to him that worketh is the reward not reckoned of grace, but of debt.

5 But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.

6 Even as David also describeth the blessedness of the man, unto whom God imputeth righteousness without works,

7 Saying, Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered.

8 Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin.

9 Cometh this blessedness then upon the circumcision only, or upon the uncircumcision also? for we say that faith was reckoned to Abraham for righteousness.

10 How was it then reckoned? when he was in circumcision, or in uncircumcision? Not in circumcision, but in uncircumcision.

11 And he received the sign of circumcision, a seal of the righteousness of the faith which he had yet being uncircumcised: that he might be the father of all them that believe, though they be not circumcised; that righteousness might be imputed unto them also:

12 And the father of circumcision to them who are not of the circumcision only, but who also walk in the steps of that faith of our father Abraham, which he had being yet uncircumcised.

13 For the promise, that he should be the heir of the world, was not to Abraham, or to his seed, through the law, but through the righteousness of faith.

14 For if they which are of the law be heirs, faith is made void, and the promise made of none effect:

15 Because the law worketh wrath: for where no law is, there is no transgression.

16 Therefore it is of faith, that it might be by grace; to the end the promise might be sure to all the seed; not to that only which is of the law, but to that also which is of the faith of Abraham; who is the father of us all,

17 (As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations,) before him whom he believed, even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were.

18 Who against hope believed in hope, that he might become the father of many nations, according to that which was spoken, So shall thy seed be.

19 And being not weak in faith, he considered not his own body now dead, when he was about an hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sarah’s womb:

20 He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God;

21 And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform.

22 And therefore it was imputed to him for righteousness.

23 Now it was not written for his sake alone, that it was imputed to him;

24 But for us also, to whom it shall be imputed, if we believe on him that raised up Jesus our Lord from the dead;

25 Who was delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our justification.

  1. Romans 4:17-21 (NLT)
    That is what the scriptures mean when God told him, I have made you a father of many nations. This happened because Abraham believed in the God who brings the dead to life and who creates new things out of nothing.
    Even when there was no reason to hope, Abraham kept hoping – believing that he would become the father of many nations. For God had said to him, “That’s how many descendants you will have!” And Abraham’s FAITH did not weaken, even though, at about 100 years of age, he figured his body was as good as dead – and so was Sarah’s womb.
    Abraham never wavered in believing God’s promise. In fact, his FAITH GREW STRONGER, and in this he brought glory to God. He was fully convinced that God is able to do whatever he promised.

    Hebrews 11:1, “Now FAITH is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”

    GREAT FAITH!
    STRONG FAITH!
    MORE FAITH in 2015!

  2. 20. He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God;

    If you are one that likes to set new year resolutions but don’t have any yet, here are three good ones:

    Stagger not at the promise of God through unbelief.

    Be strong in faith.

    Give glory to God.

    Mark 9:24 KJV
    And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief.

  3. Romans 4:19-21
    Facing the Facts
    Notice thr Bible says about Abraham: “Without weakening in his faith, he faced the fact that his body was as good as dead—-since he was about a hundred years old—-and that Sarah’s womb was also dead.Yet he did not waver through unbelief regading the promise of God, but was strengthed in his faith and gave glory to God, being fully persuaded that God had power to do what he had promised” That’s what I call “radical reliance” on God!

    MORE radical reliance in 2015!!!!

    The facts of any situation include the hopelessness of the difficulty we face, but they also include the reality of God’s power to work in your impossible situation.

    Someone said,
    Look around–and be distressed,
    Look within—-and be depressed,
    Look to Jesus- —-and be at rest.

    In fact, that’s the only way you can be at rest when you face an impossible situation : Look to Jesus . Focus on Him instead of the on the circumstances. Filll your mind with God’s Word. Concentrate your attention to His promises. Yes faith means that you face reality—and then make a conscious choice to believe and trust God. When we do, we practice Abraham’s “radical reliance” on God.

  4. We can never do enough in our flesh to please God to salvation, it is through faith in what Jesus did on the Cross that enables us to obtain salvation through his sacrifice. Believing in Jesus and his commandments is the only way to be saved.

  5. Romans 4:18 (Wuest – The New Testament: An Expanded Translation)
    18 who, being beyond hope, upon the basis of hope believed, in order that he might become father of many nations, according to that which has been spoken with finality, In this manner will your offspring be.

    Father Abraham had many sons

    What characterizes a son?

    Jesus let us know sonship is directly linked to our actions and activities.

    John 8:39 (Wuest – The New Testament: An Expanded Translation)
    39 They answered and said to Him, Our Father is Abraham. Jesus says to them, If you were, according to your assumption, children of Abraham, the works of Abraham you would be doing.

    What works did Abraham do?

    He believed, he had faith, he walked with God, and he never gave up. He wasn’t perfect, and he made mistakes along the way but he trusted God.

    The promise finally came, but he wasn’t satisfied with just that. He wanted MORE

    Hebrews 11:10 (Wuest – The New Testament: An Expanded Translation)
    10 for he was constantly waiting for and expecting the city having the foundations, the architect and builder of which is God.

    What makes us children of Abraham more than anything else is our desire for more of God. He didn’t just want a friendship. He wanted to be in a city, and live where God was.

  6. 7 Saying, Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered.

    8 Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin.

    The most important thing is our sins be forgiven. We need to do what it takes to make sure our sins are forgiven! What ever we accomplish in life, if we do not have in sins forgiven it will be a waste.The Word teaches us if a man gain the world and loose his soul (what would a man give in exchange his soul?)

    In the end will we be ready to meet God?

  7. Saved by faith.

    Romans 4:3-5
    For what does the Scripture say? “Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness.” Now to the one who works, his wage is not credited as a favor, but as what is due. But to the one who does not work, but believes in Him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is credited as righteousness,

    When a man is reckoned righteous through faith, it is not a legal fiction. He is not indeed a perfect man, but God does not reckon something which has no real existence. Faith is the germ of righteousness, of life in God. God recognizes no true life apart from holiness, and “he that believeth on the Son hath life.” He is not merely regarded in the law’s eye as living. God accepts the germ, not in place of the fruit, but as containing the fruit. “Abraham believed God. … No soul comes into such a relation of trust without having God’s investment upon it; and whatever there may be in God’s righteousness — love, truth, sacrifice — will be rightfully imputed or counted to be in it, because, being united to Him, it will have them coming over derivatively from Him” (Bushnell)

    This is the foundation of Christian doctrine. We are saved by faith; however, our faith is not apart from holiness. Holiness is the seal that binds salvation through faith. Apart from it we will not see Christ. Their is a delusion that simply believing is enough to go to heaven. People who profess such heresy are no different than two men sitting outside of a bank about to rob it. They want something for nothing. Faith requires action. I can believe my car can take me to work all day, but unless I put the key into the ignition and make the trip, then I am going nowhere. The same is with faith. We can believe in Christ all day but if we don’t apply the scriptures to our lives, we aren’t going anywhere.

    Yes we are saved by faith, but our actions bind that faith to our lives. It’s time for Christians to live in truth.

  8. 20 He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God;
    21 And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform.
    Amen!!! This is the key to answered prayers trusting and knowing that God is exactly who he says he his.

  9. 5-8
    Davids psalms show that God forgives the sins of the person who believes. Faith solves both mankinds basic rerlationship problems. the man who believes is ceedited with righteousness and his sins are forgiven.

  10. Verses 19-21 AMP ” He did not weaken in faith when he considered the [utter] impotence of his own body, which was as good as dead because he was about a hundred years old, or [when he considered] the barrenness of Sarah’s [deadened] womb. No unbelief or distrust made him waver (doubtingly question) concerning the promise of God, but he grew strong and was empowered by faith as he gave praise and glory to God, Fully satisfied and assured that God was able and mighty to keep His word and to do what He had promised.” When I was younger, I did a lot of things just because I was dared to do it. In the end of verses 17-18 MSG it says “Abraham was first named “father” and then became a father because he dared to trust God to do what only God could do: raise the dead to life, with a word make something out of nothing. When everything was hopeless, Abraham believed anyway, deciding to live not on the basis of what he saw he couldn’t do but on what God said he would do.” When you enter into that realization, Hallelujah anyhow!

  11. SEEING THE INVISIBLE

    17 (As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations,) before him whom he believed, even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were.

    In the midst of the deadness of Sarah’s womb and his own body, GOD continued to prevail in prophetic utterance. GOD in HIS creative nature refuses to look at our weakness or even deadness to determine what he is able to do.

    Although Abraham and Sarah were NOT able, GOD IS ABLE. Therefore GOD called the things that were not (Abrahams ability to be a father) as though they were, (the Father of many nations) 18 Who against hope believed in hope, that he might become the father of many nations, according to that which was spoken, So shall thy seed be.

    We are not called to question GODs ability, but to TRUST GODs authority.

    The NIV
    17 As it is written: “I have made you a father of many nations.”[c] He is our father in the sight of God, in whom he believed—the God who gives life to the dead and calls into being things that were not.

    Refuse to give up on your promise, your dream, your hope, your prophesy. GOD is ABLE to cause us to experience SEEING THE INVISIBLE.

  12. 18 Who against hope believed in hope, that he might become the father of many nations, according to that which was spoken, So shall thy seed be.

    21 And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform.

    Abraham trusted in the Lord and all that he promised. He did not see through the eyes of his flesh but through the Spirit.

    His faith was not built on what he could see but on the word of God. His situations did not determine his faith.

    For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, -Romans 8:38
    Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. -Romans 8:39

  13. 4. Now to him to works for wages are not counted as grace but as debt.
    5. But to him who does not work but believes on Him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is accounted for righteousness.
    24. but also for us. It shall be impute to us who believe in Him who raised up Jesus our Lord from the dead.
    25. who was delivered up because of our offenses, and was raised because of our justification.

    Abraham received justification by faith and retribution of that he received the law that means the right to be son of God and he received the circumcision as a sign.
    Now us we received the forgiveness when we were in sin, that means out of law, and we receive the Holy Ghost as a sign that we are a sons of God.
    Justification by Grace. Praise the Lord!

  14. Faith in the salvation given to all Through the Death and Resurrection of Jesus Christ. The acceptance by the baptism in JESUS Name therefore being bury in the water for the cleansing of All our sins and then partaking of His resurrection by the baptism of the Holy Ghost by the Evidence is speaking in other tongues as the Spirit gives you Utterance has more value than the cutting of the foreskin required by the law????

    16. Therefore it is of faith, that it might be by grace; to the end the promise might be sure to all the seed; not to that only which is of the law, but to that also which is of the faith of Abraham; who is the father of us all,

  15. 19 And being not weak in faith, he considered not his own body now dead, when he was about an hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sarah’s womb:

    20 He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God;

    21 And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform.

    22 And therefore it was imputed to him for righteousness.

    23 Now it was not written for his sake alone, that it was imputed to him;

    24 But for us also, to whom it shall be imputed, if we believe on him that raised up Jesus our Lord from the dead;

    Life circumstances are the reason for little or no faith. Here Abraham was better aged and Sarah’s womb was dead and unable to have children. Abraham being the father of all nations teaches us that no matter the circumstance that life brings us we should always have faith in the power of God, we ore overcomers. God’s promises are true, he died and was raised to life for us.

    Lord I glorify you more and more, thank you in advance for strengthening my faith more and more.

  16. 20 Yet he did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God,
    21 being fully persuaded that God had power to do what he had promised.
    When you have faith in God with everything you do in life it will strengthen our faith in him. When we have faith that he will provide for us he will show power as faith shows us the way to him! But I will praise God with my whole heart in good and bad times! 🙂 ❤

  17. iLove to eat More Word

    More Relationship
    Romans 4:13 Clearly, God’s promise to give the whole earth to Abraham and his descendants was based not on his obedience to God’s law, but on a right “relationship” with God that comes by faith.

    I confess…I have focused alot of energy and instruction to obedience to the Word…but this morning as I read the blog (first in the KJV then in the NLT), I caught the revelation.

    Obedience might be better than sacrifice, but what is better than Obedience?

    The answer is “Relationship” with God that comes by faith.

    Isaiah 1:19 “If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land”

    A right relationship with God will enable us to become willing and obedient.

    This year let’s focus on MORE…more Relationship with Jesus.

  18. NLT 14 If God’s promise is only for those who obey the law, then faith is not necessary and the promise is pointless. 15 For the law always brings punishment on those who try to obey it. (The only way to avoid breaking the law is to have no law to break!)

    We have faith too believe and accept Jesus, but it does not save us. God’s grace towards us saves us. But the two go hand in hand. For we live by faith not by seeing. Then one day will see our faith come to fruition when we see kingdom of heaven.

  19. “Oh, what joy for those whose disobedience is forgiven, whose sins are put out of sight. (‭Romans‬ ‭4‬:‭7‬ NLT)

    Thankful for a God that can wipe away all our sins and we are able to praise him and him give us his joy!!

    “Oh, what joy for those whose disobedience is forgiven, whose sins are put out of sight.

    Abraham never wavered in believing God’s promise. In fact, his faith grew stronger, and in this he brought glory to God. He was fully convinced that God is able to do whatever he promises. (‭Romans‬ ‭4‬:‭7, 20-21‬ NLT)

    Never doubt a promise from God never think that he’ll forgeet about it. Have great faith and believe in the God that can do all things.
    Just hang on don’t lose faith your promise is coming. Just wait on it. Have faith and God will see your faith.

    Doubt is the devil trying to steal your faith.

  20. 20 He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God;

    MORE FAITH IN 2015!!!
    When you have no doubt and all you do is BELIEVE is when we give the glory to God! As human it is easy to see the odds and the physical stuff but MY GOD is able to do ALL THINGS!!!! God has given us all a measure of faith but when we read the Word,pray,hear testimonies, hear his Word, is when our faith keeps growing and growing! Don’t let the enemy steal what is ours! He wants to see us be destoyed but My God already defeated him for us 🙂 Hallelujah!!! Thank You Jesus

  21. 20 He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God;
    21 And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform.

    OH, what we could and would do if we would just et a grasp on the promise that each of us still have, that He promised would happen in our lives. We here at the POFW have so much more that Jesus wants to do for us, but first we too must become truly fully persuaded in the promises that Jesus has individually for each of us, and for the promises that He has for us corporately.

  22. He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God; And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform. And therefore it was imputed to him for righteousness. (‭Romans‬ ‭4‬:‭20-22‬ KJV)

    Could it perhaps be that a promise simply tarries because God wants to see and test our faith? And therefore, by holding strong to believing in God and what He say He will do will come to pass, he can see our faith.  Doing so, the Lord can see our faith; which according to strong’s definition related to God is:

    the conviction that God exists and is the creator and ruler of all things, the provider and bestower of eternal salvation through Christ

    And thus therefore by the trial of our faith and belief in Christ we are then justified, 
    to render righteous or such he ought to be
    That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ: Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory: Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls. (‭1 Peter‬ ‭1‬:‭7-9‬ KJV)

    Because of our faith in the Lord Jesus, we now that the promise will come.  Therefore, we should wait patiently with all expectation.  

    HEBREWS 10:23 (AMP)

    So let us seize and hold fast and retain without wavering the hope we cherish and confess and our acknowledgement of it, for He Who promised is reliable (sure) and faithful to His word.

  23. 18 Who against hope believed in hope, that he might become the father of many nations, according to that which was spoken, So shall thy seed be. 19 And being not weak in faith, he considered not his own body now dead, when he was about an hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sarah’s womb: 20 He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God;

    Sometimes situations look bleak and we are wondering “where is the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob” in the matter. But if we can refute doubt and unbelief and let our faith remain unshakeable, unmoveable, we will see the Lord’s promises come to pass in His time.

  24. “He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God”. Abraham received his promise and was blessed because he had and kept the faith. All have faith, the difference is in keeping it, or not. One that receives a promise from God, would be wise to follow Abraham’s example, for then it shall be so. What a mighty God we serve! Thank God for his word. God bless America, Jerusalem, and you all in Jesus name, Amen!

  25. 19 He did not weaken in faith when he considered his own body, which was as good as dead (since he was about a hundred years old), or when he considered the barrenness of Sarah’s womb. 20 No unbelief made him waver concerning the promise of God, but he grew strong in his faith as he gave glory to God, 21 fully convinced that God was able to do what he had promised. 22 That is why his faith was “counted to him as righteousness.” 23 But the words “it was counted to him” were not written for his sake alone, 24 but for ours also. It will be counted to us who believe in him who raised from the dead Jesus our Lord, 25 who was delivered up for our trespasses and raised for our justification. ESV

    Even when all worldly logic told him not to belief, that all of God’s promises were impossible, he clung tight to the Lord. He waited faithfully on God’s promises because he knew that God is faithful and all-powerful. Abraham is a great example for me for patience.

  26. The word faith is used 9 times in this chapter. He defines it in vs 17 “calleth those things which be not as though they were.” He gives examples of those who have used faith like David in vs 6 and Abraham in vs 19. Abraham thought that he was dead on the inside. “19 And being not weak in faith, he considered not his own body now dead, when he was about an hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sarah’s womb:” but trusted and had faith in God’s promises. It’s the same way we were dead inside, without the Holy Ghost. When we are baptized we are buried in His likeness and die to our old life. “24 But for us also, to whom it shall be imputed, if we believe on him that raised up Jesus our Lord from the dead;
    25 Who was delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our justification.”

  27. 18 Who against hope believed in hope, that he might become the father of many nations, according to that which was spoken, So shall thy seed be.

    19 And being not weak in faith, he considered not his own body now dead, when he was about an hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sarah’s womb:

    20 He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God;

    Even when Abraham seemed to be stacked with impossible odds, what everyone else thought was there was no way it could upon, that it was “dead”, he stayed faithful and believed God in what he had to say in the situation and God blessed him beyond what he could have even imagined. We need to remember no matter how crazy are situation seems to be and no matter how impossible God’s word to us may seem in our lives, if we stick to his promises, he will surely bless you.

    Matthew 17:20 And Jesus said unto them “Because of your unbelief for verily I say unto you, if ye have faith as a grain of a mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place and it shall remove, and nothing shall be impossible unto you.

  28. MORE Grace & Faith

    4 Now to him that worketh is the reward not reckoned of grace, but of debt.

    5 But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.

    6 Even as David also describeth the blessedness of the man, unto whom God imputeth righteousness without works,

    7 Saying, Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered.

    James 2:14
    What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him?

    James 2:26
    For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.

    At first glance, these passages seem to create a contradiction. But looking deeper, they reveal an important principle about our Christian Faith: by faith rather than works, we are met in the place of sin and enter into the Lord’s righteousness; but after that, through faith, we work the works of righteousness. After we enter into the covering of righteousness, we shift our works by grace and faith through the power of the Lord’s Spirit to work His righteousness, otherwise we have receive His righteousness in vain.

    James 1:26
    If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man’s religion is vain.

    Ephesians 2:8-10
    8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

    9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.

    10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

  29. 20 He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God;

    We must stand on Gods promises. And have unwavering faith in him.

  30. 12 And the father of circumcision to them who are not of the circumcision only, but who also walk in the steps of that faith of our father Abraham, which he had being yet uncircumcised.

    The Steps of Faith

    It is very important for us to realize that faith is not just one step but many steps along our walk with Christ. Each time we step out in faith we gain more faith for the next opportunity that comes. Each time we believe and rejoice in the testimony of others faith we are allowing our faith to be stretched and built stronger.

    More Word
    More testimonies
    More faith
    More revelation

  31. He was fully convinced that God is able to do whatever he promises. And because of Abraham’s faith, God counted him as righteous. (‭Romans‬ ‭4‬:‭21-22‬ NLT)

    Doubt is not of God. We need to take the example of Abrahams faith to remind us of how a simple man can have such power. Even when things seem impossible faith brought Abraham through his struggles. There is power in your faith, there is promise in your faith.

  32. 20 He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God;

    21 And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform.

    “Being fully persuaded”
    There are some of over 7,000 promises from God to is the bible, yes over 7,000. You can add this to the definitions for what is faith: a state of being fully persuaded. What an amazing thing to have a revelation of, to know that our faith makes God preform! To take action in producing a mighty work and move of God.
    More home visits
    More relatives saved
    More JESUS!

  33. 5 But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness

    We work. It is all within our power, but we also believe. When we believe things are no longer in our power. It’s is only when we take things out of our own hands and use our faith in Christ that we really start doing what God wants us to do. Less of what I can do. MORE faith in God!

  34. 3 For the Scriptures tell us, “Abraham believed God, and God counted him as righteous because of his faith.” 4 When people work, their wages are not a gift, but something they have earned. 5 But people are counted as righteous, not because of their work, but because of their faith in God who forgives sinners.
    Let us forgive all sinners anyone that has ever wronged us or others that we love. As Bro. Moore said on Wednesday night, let it be our light, let our light shine so that others see Christ in Us.

    I love you Jesus I don’t know where I world be without you.
    Thank you for giving me a husband that prayed for my salvation daily and my mother nlaw who continuously pays for me and my family.
    I ask you Jesus to let my light shine daily so I can lead my family to you.

  35. And Abraham’s faith did not weaken, even though, at about 100 years of age, he figured his body was as good as dead—and so was Sarah’s womb. Abraham never wavered in believing God’s promise. In fact, his faith grew stronger, and in this he brought glory to God. He was fully convinced that God is able to do whatever he promises. (‭Romans‬ ‭4‬:‭19-21‬ NLT)

    We serve a God that keeps His Word. We can place our confidance in Him. Our God is faithful to His promises. 

  36. 20 Abraham never wavered in believing God’s promise. In fact, his faith grew stronger, and in this he brought glory to God. 21 He was fully convinced that God is able to do whatever he promises. 22 And because of Abraham’s faith, God counted him as righteous. 23 And when God counted him as righteous, it wasn’t just for Abraham’s benefit. It was recorded 24 for our benefit, too, assuring us that God will also count us as righteous if we believe in him, the one who raised Jesus our Lord from the dead. 25 He was handed over to die because of our sins, and he was raised to life to make us right with God.

    Halleluiah! It’s for our benefit as well! If we believe in God we too will be counted righteous!
