Abraham Believed God—Romans 4:3
"What does the Scripture say? "Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness" (Romans 4:3)
“Abraham believed God.” This is a profound statement!
Wow! To have Abraham’s faith! Scripture records he trusted God, but I imagine this was a daily battle.
These promises required nothing more from Abraham’s but to enjoy them.
Abraham was homeless and without an heir when God visited him, making outlandish declarations.
These promises required nothing more from Abraham’s but to enjoy them. We see bumps in the road, but the summation in Genesis is that Abraham trusted God.
The result? The imputation of righteousness, something given, not earned.
Like Abraham, our faith pleases God. When we trust Him to do what we cannot, He responds in our favor.
Today, where can you trust God?
Did God make a promise in scripture you can act on?
