Against all hope.

Posted by appolus on November 9, 2020

Rom 4:18 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.

This phrase “against all hope,” or “contrary to hope,” reveals a very wonderful truth. In this particular case we see that Abraham and his wife are well beyond the age of bearing a child. Sarah’s womb was dead, it could indeed carry no life. And so in life we oftentimes run into situations that defy hope, stand diametrically opposed to hope. All the evidence of the rational mind and the finest expert opinions dash any worldly hope upon the rocks of hopelessness and despair. Yet brothers and sisters, it is a glorious thing to remember that our hope is not the hope of the world. Our hope is founded upon our God and His word, His promises. His word is not broken, His promises cannot be broken. And it is this hope that is a wellspring of joy and peace and love and a sound mind.

This wellspring is Jesus who died upon the cross, and was laid in a place of death, like Sara’s womb. And yet, just like Sarah’s womb, Life would rise up out of that place of death by the very power of the Spirit of God. And just as righteousness was imputed to Abraham who against all hope, believed in hope, the hope of glory, the hope of life springing up from the dead, we too have righteousness imputed to us, who believe in the risen Christ, the Son of the Living God. He is our hope of Glory and in Him we have standing before God.

Perhaps you face a hopeless situation today? Can I tell you brothers and sisters, there is no hopelessness in Christ. He is our wellspring of Hope, and from the Well, springs eternal hope. Trust in Him despite the seeming hopelessness of your situation. There is nothing too difficult for our Lord. God is with you today as you navigate the narrowest and most difficult part of your journey. He is a lamp unto your feet in the darkness and He is the light that will lead you through the valley.
