Receiving The Promises Of God


Romans 4:19-21: “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 Sara’s womb: he staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God; and being fully persuaded that, what He had promised, He was able also to perform.”


Be not weak in faith: Abraham did not take into account his own body or the deadness of Sara’s womb. People who are weak in faith focus on the limitations of things and things that stand in the way from God’s promises being fulfilled in their lives. Therefore they stagger at the promises of God through unbelief and fail to see these promises fulfilled in their lives. These people waver in their faith. “Let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavers is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord” (James 1:6-7).

Be strong in faith: We must believe that God is greater than anything that might stand in the way of God’s promises being fulfilled. We must believe that God is and that He is a rewarder of those that diligently seek Him (Hebrews 11:6).
1.  Giving glory to God: We need to testify of God’s power (what He can do and what He has done).
2.  Being fully persuaded: That what He has promised, He is able to perform.
