Romans 4:18 (NIV) Against all hope, Abraham in hope believed and so became the father of many nations, just as it had been said to him, "So shall your offspring be."
Sometimes, you just have to keep on hoping for your heart's desire, even when it seems silly. Even when smart people tell you to give up.
Sarah Crewe believed she'd see her daddy again. Susan Walker believed that Santa would get her a house. Abraham believed that his offspring would be as numerous as the stars in the sky.
Ok, two of these are fiction, but still a good story. Abraham becoming the father of many nations? That's history: no one can deny it. That proves we serve a BIG God.
A God who can bring our daddies home, and bring us houses. And whatever heart's desire He has given you.
