Abraham was reckoned as righteous because he believed the promises made to him by God, even though he had no logical reason to believe in those promises. Abraham was promised to be the father of many nations. Although he was 100 years old and Sarah was barren, he still trusted in the Word of God. That Word given to him was not backed up by worldly logic. Statistics were not on Abraham’s side. But where man can fail, God can win (Luke 18:27). Abraham believed that God could create something out of nothing even though the probability of that creation was slim (Romans 4:17). Indeed the story of Abraham points out that with “God all things are possible” (Matthew 19:26). We just need to believe in that power and persist in it, even though we do not see it manifested now. All we need, is to see it exist in our hearts. If a promise from God exists within us, we need to keep believing and walk in faith by acting as if it will show up in the realm of creation. The Bible teaches us this lesson through the verse, “we walk by faith, not by sight” (2 Cor. 5:7). True reality and true existense resides in what God communicates with us in our souls, within the realm of the invisible (Luke 17:21). If we believe like Abraham, we will be recognized as righteous because followers of God are noted and rewarded for their faith.
