“Without becoming weak in faith he contemplated his own body, now as good as dead since he was about a hundred years old, and the deadness of Sarah’s womb” (Romans 4:19).

Faith has never required a denial of the hard facts; that we must stick our head in the sand and pretend our problems are not real. Abraham contemplated his own physical condition, as well as his wife’s, and acknowledged their frailties. Even so, his faith gave greater weight to the promises of God than the limitations of this life.
