He believed in God, who gives life to the dead and calls things into existence that do not exist. – Romans 4:17 (HCSB)
This verse is permission to believe without hesitation. This verse sums up what God is capable of doing. This verse is a command to have faith that is not restricted by science, by reason, by man, by our tiny human minds that don’t understand. This verse is empowering and comforting all in one – empowering because we have access to this God who brings death to life and creates something from nothing, comforting because this God is on our side. Why would we fear anything of this world and beyond it when this God is our God? Be encouraged by this verse today – what is it that you desperately need? What miracle are you asking for? What trial are you facing? I pray that your faith will rise as a result of reading this verse and that it will no longer be restricted by things so much smaller than our God.
