(Romans 4:19-22), Without weakening in his faith, he faced the fact that his body was as good as dead, since he was about a hundred years old, and that Sarah's womb was also dead. Yet he did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise 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. This is why it was credited to him as righteousness.
This letter is from Apostle Paul to Rome. The Apostle is reminding the Romans about having faith at a time when you don't think that the Lord is hearing your prayers. Abraham and Sarah were promised a son, even in their old age. Abraham kept the faith and believed what God has promised him, without wavering. The one thing that Abraham knew for certain was that God had the power to do what he promised. The bible says that no one is righteous, but God counted Abraham as righteous because he believed Him and kept the faith even though he had no idea how God was going to keep His promise.
Without wavering means that no matter what you see ahead of you or what you may be struggling with in your life, keep the faith and take God at His word. You cannot be swayed by the things that you don't see happening. Maybe the Lord has promised you something years ago and you stopped having faith that He will keep His promise. No matter how long it takes God is not a man that He should lie. God will always keep His promises. Remember your days are not the same as the Lords. If you keep the faith that God will bless you, then you too will be counted righteous to the Lord. The reason why Abraham was counted righteous was because of his faith. The scripture says that Abraham praised God for the promise. This is the same thing that the Lord wants us to do, don't worry about the promise, praise and glorify Him for the promise and the plan for your life.
I prayed for years for my oldest son to be delivered from the things of the world that was holding him back from getting the blessings that the Lord had promised me that He would do for my son. I trusted the Lord for my son, but at times I did waver. I remember asking the Lord, "why aren't you helping my son?" The Lord's reply to me was, "How long did it take you". I smiled and just kept praying. Things finally worked out for our good. My point is that sometimes you may have to pray a little longer for what you want, maybe you have to labor in the spirit, but the Lord has a plan for your life. If you cannot see the Lord's hand upon your life, that is the time to trust in His plan. The Lord always has a plan, keep the faith. Again I say, the Lord always has a plan. You must trust in the Lord with your heart and lend not on your own understanding. PRAISE GOD!
