AS GOOD AS DEAD
Therefore from one man—in fact, from one as good as dead—came offspring as numerous as the stars of heaven and as innumerable as the grains of sand by the seashore. Hebrews 11:12
From one as good as dead ~ came a nation. Who can bring that about except God!
No one likes to hear the words, “Your chances are slim.” Or worse yet, “There is no chance for success.” The latter is certainly what would have been said regarding Abraham and Sarah’s desire to conceive a child in their old age. The window of time for such a possibility was long past.

Do you know for certain that God is going to touch what is nearly dead to bring about a miracle? Probably not – unless He has appeared to you somehow to declare it. But that does not mean that you and I should hang our head and live in despair that what we’ve prayed for is an absolute impossibility. As long as we live and breathe, God can do anything. And if we consider God and see with eyes of faith, that produces joy and expectancy, not mourning and resignation. While I don’t have ~ I can still sing with hope.
I laugh like a child at Christmas at the possibilities within the realm of Your power. Amen
