Thoughts on Things Above

Bless Note

I wanted to share a scripture with you that blessed me and healed me the other day. I have been having so many frustrating physical issues these last 6 weeks or so, I was getting pretty discouraged at my slow progress. Then a scripture popped into my head one morning about Abraham and those verses in Romans about him believing that God was able to perform what He promises.

So I grabbed my Bible and looked it up in the NASB because that has been my go-to Bible lately. And reading it in a different version….OMG, it knocked my socks off! I had never really understood these verses completely…a little gray. But this just hit my heart and healed my heart. I guess some may argue that this version is not accurate here but all I know is it hit me right where I needed it.
H-O-W to believe God even when the circumstances suck your brain 🙂

NASB Romans 4:19,20

Without becoming weak in faith he contemplated his own body, now as good as dead since he was about a hundred years old, and the deadness of Sarah’s womb;
yet, with respect to the promise of God, he did not waver in unbelief but grew strong in faith, giving glory to God,
and being fully assured that what God had promised, He was able also to perform.

 

Abraham didn’t falter in his trust in God’s promise because of the obvious reality of his and Sarah’s age! He saw it. He knew it. He wasn’t pretending that it wasn’t true! But it didn’t weaken his trust in God, instead he continued to grow in his trust to God and he gave glory to God!

I know what God’s will is for His kid’s and how He is the God that heals. So instead of focusing on how I feel and what is happening with my body, I just chill and keep my focus on who God is and what is available and KNOW that God is able to perform His promises. Discouragement weakens believing. Don’t want that!!

It blessed my heart.
