Wow...just wow!

Was reading Romans 4 this morning and COULD NOT get passed the WOW moment over these lines...

(formatted this way for emphasis to show how each few words hit me right between the eyes)

Against all hope
Abraham in hope believed
and so became the father of many nations

Without weakening in his faith
he faced the fact
that his body was as good as dead...
and that Sarah's womb was also dead.
Yet he did not waver...
But was strengthened in his faith
and gave glory to God
being fully persuaded
that God has power to do
what He has planned. (NIV)


God, grant me that simple yet world-changing faith like Abraham.

It sounds like what I've sometimes heard called "quickening." As in, "the Lord quickened this Scripture to me." Pretty amazing.
