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. He did not waver at the promise of God through unbelief, but was strengthened in faith, giving glory to God, and being fully convinced that what He had promised He was able to perform. Romans 4:19-21
According to these verses it says that Abraham was not weak in his faith because he didn't look at the deadness or rather the impossibility of the situation but instead he was strong in faith because the thing that he looked at was the promise God made to him. It says he did not waver because of the deadness of things in the natural. He didn't focus on the hopeless impossibility of the situation but looked to the fact that he knew because he knew that God was well able to perform His word and bring it to pass in his life! According to the Strong's the word perform means; 'to make or do.' Jesus' would refer to such a stand as having 'great faith' whenever he saw others who believed in like fashion.
How about you? Have you ever had a prophetic word spoken by God over or into your life? Do you have faith that God will bring you into your destiny, or your calling to accomplish all that He has for you to do? Do you ever doubt that what He has prophesied will come to pass?
If so, stop! Now consider Abraham's example and be fully convinced that He is well able to bring it to pass!
If so, stop! Now consider all the wonderful examples of the men and women throughout the Bible that put their faith in His ability to bring His words to pass.
If so, stop! Now consider this example in all of Genesis chapter 1 ...starting in verse 3 'Then God said, "Let there be light"; and there was light. ...Was He not well able to speak and then bring all of creation to pass just as He had commanded?
If so, stop! Now consider this promise made by God Himself to reassure you! "So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, But it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it." Isaiah 55:11
Are you convinced yet that we as His followers 'must not waver at the promise of God through unbelief, but be strengthened
in faith, giving glory to God, and be fully convinced that what He
had promises He is able to perform?"
Still a little doubt there about your "dead situation' or that God's call on your life will come to pass?
If so, stop! Now consider this example of how He caused even the smallest details to be fulfilled in this rather important moment in the life of Jesus, the most perfect example of all.
Therefore, because it was Preparation Day, that the bodies should not remain on the cross on the Sabbath (for that Sabbath was a high day), the Jews asked Pilate that their legs might be broken, and that they might be taken away. Then the soldiers came and broke the legs of the first and of the other who was crucified with Him. But when they came to Jesus and saw that He was already dead, they did not break His legs. But one of the soldiers pierced His side with a spear, and immediately blood and water came out. And he who has seen has testified, and his testimony is true; and he knows that he is telling the truth, so that you may believe. For these things were done that the Scripture should be fulfilled, "Not one of His bones shall be broken." And again another Scripture says, "They shall look on Him whom they pierced."
It doesn't matter how big the event or how small the detail, If He said it ... It will come to pass!
Fix your eyes on the prize and step into every call, sign, wonder, and miracle He has promised because He is well able to perform it!
