Rest on His unchanging grace.

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.
 
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 carry no life. We oftentimes run into situations that defies hope, that stands diametrically opposed to any solution. All the evidence of the rational world and the expert opinions of men dash any chance 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. We are not left to chance. Our hope is founded upon our God and His word and 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.
 
Abraham, the father of faith believed God that life would spring forth from death. Now from the first promise until the fulfillment of it took 25 years. Abraham was 100 and Sarah was 90 when Issac was conceived. This defied all the evidence of the rational world. In the world Abraham would have had no hope. In the world we too would have no hope in certain situations, yet praise God we may be in the world but not off it. We walk according to the Spirit of God, we stand upon the Word of God. We believe in the promises of God and we walk in the Kingdom of God. This kingdom is and always has been a place of miracles and a wellspring of hope. His will, whether to raise us up or slay us, towers above the dictates of men. In that, we rest, not as the world rests.
 
The birth of Issac is the birth of a nation. It is this line that would give us Jesus, the seed that would bless all the nations of the world. It sprang forth from the impossible which is the realm of the miraculous. This realm has a throne and upon that throne sits our heavenly Father. Can hope step into hopelessness? Yes indeed. Just as Jesus came forth from His heavenly realm and stepped into our world, then sight can come forth from blindness, joy can come forth from despair and Lazarus can come forth from the grave. Jesus is my blessed hope, all other ground in sinking sand. My hope is built on nothing less than Jesus’ blood and righteousness. When darkness veils his lovely face I rest on His unchanging grace. Rest today saints, rest.
