The Bible says, “He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief”. What does it mean to stagger? It means, to come to a place in your thinking that you feel, "maybe this is not going to work”. Abraham found himself at that point and Sarah began to stagger at the promise of God. She felt that the promise was getting delayed and then suggested that Abraham go in to her maid.
God knew exactly the circumstance they were in, and their physical condition before He told them, “I have made you a father of many nations”. God knew that the fruit of Abraham's body would be his heir. God is not intimidated by your circumstances, by what is confronting you or the situation you are in.
God is not intimidated by the doctor’s report that may have come your way. When God says by His stripes you are healed, that is the final report. You are actually healed. You will now need to take the word of God and apply it to your situation to change your situation to become your position in God’s sight. As far as God is concerned, the future is now. Rom. 4:17b “God calleth those things that be not as though they were”.
The Living Bible says, “He speaks of future events with as much certainty as though they were already past.” What God told Abraham was the position of Abraham before God, but the circumstance of Abraham before men was different from his position with God. Now, it will take your faith in God's promise to change your circumstance before men to your position before God.
Lord, I receive strength in my inner man not to stagger at the face of no evidence and contradicting evidences in Jesus’ name. Amen.
