When it seems hopeless

Today, I'm thinking about situations where change seems impossible unless that one key comes along that can open closed doors. It seems to me that God specializes in solving so-called impossible situations, things that seem hopeless.

I'm reflecting on this text: Romans 4:18, that says, "against all hope, in hope Abraham believed, and so became the father of many nations, just as it had been said to him, 'so shall your offspring be.'"

Abraham didn't make it happen. The one who promised him did it. He put his hope in the one who promised, in the word of the one who spoke.
