Believe God's Promises

16 Therefore it is of faith, that it might be by grace; to the end the promise might be sure to all the seed; not to that only which is of the law, but to that also which is of the faith of Abraham; who is the father of us all,
17 (As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations,) before him whom he believed, even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were.
18 Who against hope believed in hope, that he might become the father of many nations, according to that which was spoken, So shall thy seed be.
19 And being not weak in faith, he considered not his own body now dead, when he was about an hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sarah's womb:
20 He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God;
21 And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform.
22 And therefore it was imputed to him for righteousness. (Romans 4)

Those who follow God will find themselves calling forth things which are not as if they were right before them. They will repeat the words God gives them, speaking them into the darkness. They will act in complete belief in the words of God. Creation will respond, and reality will conform to the Word.

Don't stagger at God's promises. Embrace them. Lean against them. God is able to perform all that he promises.

It doesn't matter how different reality may seem from what he promises. He is truthful, he is worthy of all belief.
