A Romans 4:18 Faith

We honor God by developing the Romans 4:18 faith that Abraham had. “Against all hope. In hope he believed. Without weakness of faith. He did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but He was strengthened in faith and gave glory to God, being fully persuaded that God had the power to do what He has promised.”- This faith was credited to Abraham as righteousness.
It is important to note that Abraham had to grow in this faith, as we do. Jesus asked the question, "when the Son of Man returns, will He find faith on the earth?" I believe He is referring to this type of faith- if we have anxiety, fear, or are overcome by circumstance- aren't we implying that we really do not trust God to keep His promises?
Lord- may we walk in our faith- may it secure our hearts, not merely fall from loose lips. You are able to do what You say- You will do what You have promised...even when it seems the bleakest!
