The Hope of Glory
“In hope he believed against hope, that he should become the father of many nations, as he had been told, "So shall your offspring be." He did not weaken in faith when he considered his own body, which was as good as dead (since he was about a hundred years old), or when he considered the barrenness of Sarah's womb. No unbelief made him waver concerning the promise of God, but he grew strong in his faith as he gave glory to God, fully convinced that God was able to do what he had promised.”Romans 4:18-21 ESV •••
The word "glory" in the Hebrew language is translated as "weight," so when we think of giving glory to God in the midst of a trial what we are really doing is recognizing that the WEIGHT of GOD is a heck of a lot greater than the weight of the problems and the issues and the circumstances that we are currently facing.
How cool is it that God calls us into this thing together with Him? That He asks us to take part in this thing with Him through faith?! Woo! Chills. 🎉
