Against all hope, Lori in hope believed and so became the owner of a new house, just as she had dreamed. Without weakening in her faith, she faced the fact that her body was as good as dead—since she was about 52 years old—and that Bob was also old. 🙂 Yet she did not waver through unbelief regarding her dream before God, but was strengthened in her faith and gave glory to God, being fully persuaded that God had power to do what she had asked.
I’ve heard it said that we need to pray God’s word back to Him, and that through this he is honored. What you’ve just read is my prayer back to God, loosely paraphrased from Romans 4:18-21. It has nothing to do with God’s promise to me (for He has made no promises regarding my housing situation). It also has no connection to Abraham’s promise from His Lord. It does, however, have everything to do with my heartfelt conviction that God is bigger than any of my dreams and that to place my faith in him for the big things is my life is the BEST decision I could ever make!
What are you hoping for today?
