|What Has God Said About You? (4)|
|‘…He did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise…’ Romans 4:20|
If your vision is to be a great parent, that doesn’t mean you don’t have great faith. It just means you understand your calling. All Moses’ mother did was give birth-but what a baby! God protected her son when she couldn’t do a thing to help him. Then He arranged to have him raised in Pharaoh’s royal courts. And when you discover God’s purpose for your life, He will provide for you, too! Some days your vision won’t look like it’s coming together. As a child, Joseph dreamed of being a great leader, but before he could get to the palace, he had to go through the prison. Pastor James Petro says, ‘You can’t build a foundation in a storm, so God will prepare you in advance.’ Sometimes your vision will seem to die before it springs to life. That happened to Abraham. ‘Against all hope, Abraham in hope believed and so became the father of many nations…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’ (vv. 18-21 NIV). Paul wrote, ‘We are fools for Christ…’ (1Corinthians 4:10 NIV). God uses radical people who don’t care how they look: people who’ve survived difficult pasts, defied the odds, held onto their vision, and declared, ‘My God is able!’ And you can be one of those people!
