Saturday, May 26th: Ecclesiastes 1-3; Romans 4 ~ Tammy

Today's passage from the Bible In a Year Reading Plan is Ecclesiastes 1-3; Romans 4

Romans 4:18 Even when there was no reason for hope, Abraham kept hoping —believing that he would become the father of many nations. For God had said to him, “That’s how many descendants you will have!”[e] 19 And Abraham’s faith did not weaken, even though, at about 100 years of age, he figured his body was as good as dead—and so was Sarah’s womb.
Why did Abraham keep hoping?

There was no earthly reason to keep hoping he would father a child when he was already 100 years old.

There was no earthly reason to keep hoping Sarah would bear a child when her womb was as good as dead.

But Abraham didn't need an earthly reason.

Because God had promised.

And that was enough.
