Consider Not

Good Morning.  Here’s Today’s Nugget to chew on:

“Consider Not”

Romans 4:19-25 The Message (MSG)

19-25 Abraham didn’t focus on his own impotence and say, “It’s hopeless. This hundred-year-old body could never father a child.” Nor did he survey Sarah’s decades of infertility and give up. He didn’t tiptoe around God’s promise asking cautiously skeptical questions. He plunged into the promise and came up strong, ready for God, sure that God would make good on what he had said.

That’s why it is said, “Abraham was declared fit before God by trusting God to set him right.” But it’s not just Abraham; it’s also us! The same thing gets said about us when we embrace and believe the One who brought Jesus to life when the conditions were equally hopeless. The sacrificed Jesus made us fit for God, set us right with God.

Further Thought: Just like Abraham, if God has spoken or given you a promise then stand on that promise, regardless of how things appear in the natural. Consider not your age, how long you’ve had the problem, what the statistics say, your ability to pay, what the economy is doing, or your qualifications. 

No, just like Abraham, dare to believe God. Stop trying to figure it out or understand it before you trust. Your young children don’t do that to you. No, they just trust their mother or father to do what they say. 

In the natural, there was no way a 100-year-old man and a 90-year-old woman could have a child. In the natural, once they killed Jesus, there was no way for him to be raised from the dead. But with God, “All Things R Possible”, Matthew 19:26. 

Have a day, and keep chewing on God’s Word.
