Romans 4:19 "And being not weak in faith, he considered not his own body now dead, when he was about a hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sara's womb"

When Abraham was told by God that he would have a child, the Bible tells us that Abraham “considered not his own body”. The word considered means to meditate on, think about, or deliberate. When Abraham was told these words from God he did not think about the state of his body or Sarah’s womb. He didn’t meditate on how old he was or if it was possible. He did not match up God’s Word against natural evidence.

As believers we are to follow in the footsteps of Abraham and do exactly what he did – consider not. When we believe on God’s Word for a promise, we should not consider what our natural senses tell us. We should not consider how we feel, what we see, or what we hear. When we do consider these things, it leads to unbelief, which will negate the force of faith we are putting on a situation. So when you are faced with a situation that may seem grim in the natural, consider not what is taking place in the natural realm, consider on what the Word of God says only!
