Pondering Romans 4:13-25

Two of my favorite verses in the New Testament are in this passage so that will be my focus:
“Yet he (Abraham) did not waver through unbelief regarding the promises 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.” (4:20-21)
Abraham had a specific promise from God for him but the Bible is full of promises that apply to all believers. Here are just a few that it is always good to be reminded of:
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.” Mt 11:28-29
“And my God will meet all your needs according to His glorious riches in Christ Jesus.” Phil 4:19
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ he is a new creation, the old has gone the new has come.” 2 Cor 5:17
“If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. 1Jn 1:9
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight.” Prov 3:5-6
“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” Romans 8:28
Think on these. Let them sink into your inner being. Let them strengthen your faith and then give glory to God because He is indeed faithful and He will indeed do what He has promised.
