“(As it is written, ‘A father of many nations have I made you’) in the presence of Him whom he believed, even God, who gives life to the dead and calls into being that which does not exist” (Romans 4:17).
It’s never a question of whether or not a person is going to have faith. Everyone lives life with faith in something. The greater issue has to do with the object of faith. The hope and confidence of Abraham’s faith is because God was the object of his faith; not his circumstances; not his emotional state; not his financial portfolio, but the nature and character of the one true living God, who reigns over life and death. Faith in anyone or anything else is a misplaced venture.
