"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."
Romans 4:18

"Who against hope believed in hope,
That he might become ..."

Always remember Abraham.
He hoped against hope!!!

Even when, according to the worlds standards,
There was no logical reason for any hope,
Abraham trusted God and hoped anyway.
He believed and trusted in God, and he became ...

Lord God Almighty, God of All Hope.
Let your Spirit dwell within me.
Never let the spirit of doubt or despair come near me.
Always and forever, dear Lord, let me have hope
Even when the world would say. "No,
There is no logical reason for any hope here."

Please, Lord, let me remember Abraham
And hope against hope; just like he did.
Help me, always, to trust and believe in You and Your Word.
For truly, You are a God who specializes in
Hopeless and impossible cases.


"Now the God of hope
fill you with all joy and peace
in believing, that ye may abound in hope,
through the power of the Holy Ghost."
Romans 15:13

"For with God nothing shall be impossible."
Luke 1:37
