Romans 4:18 (Abraham) who, contrary to hope, in hope believed, so that he became the father of many nations, according to what was spoken, “So shall your descendants be.” 19 And not being weak in faith, he did not consider his own body, already dead (since he was about a hundred years old), and the deadness of Sarah’s womb. 20 He did not waver at the promise of God through unbelief, but was strengthened in faith, giving glory to God, 21 and being fully convinced that what He had promised He was also able to perform.

There are a few ways Abraham showed us how to keep the faith.

  1. Believe the Word of God.
    Abraham believed the Word of God. If we’re going to receive anything from God, in spite of everything we see, we must believe His Word.
  2. Ignore Contrary Facts.
    Abraham understood the fact that he and his wife were too old to have a child, but he chose to ignore contrary facts and stay in faith. There are going to be facts we see that make it difficult to believe God’s Word will come to pass. In the face of every contrary fact, we must ignore those facts and focus on the promise.
  3. Give Glory to God.
    As we believe God’s Word, ignore the facts, and give glory to God we position ourselves to receive anything we want from God. Keep the faith.

When Abraham ignored the contrary facts and focused on the promise of God, he freed himself up to give glory to God. He gave glory to God because it wasn’t a matter of if the promise was coming; it was when it was coming. When we believe, it’s just a matter of time before we receive our promise, we don’t have to wait to see the promise to give glory to God. We can give glory to God now.
