Ignore The Facts
"And not being weak in faith, he did not consider his own body, already dead (since he was about a hundred years old), and the deadness of Sarah’s womb." Romans 4:19 NKJV
To consider something is to think carefully about it, typically before making a decision. That understood, the Bible says that Abraham did not consider his own body and Sarah's; in other words, he did not let the facts determine the extent of his faith in God, he did not let the fact be a factor in determining what God could do for him; he did not consider the facts in determining what he could or could not do; he overlooked the facts, he simply ignored them!
You begin to lose the moment you begin to consider the facts! And that's why Peter began to sink in the water right in front of Jesus! He was walking on water, doing the impossible, until he began to focus on the waves; he became afraid, and immediately began to sink!
Your bank account is not a determinant of what you can accomplish in life! God is too big! When He gives you a dream, an assignment or a vision, He doesn't do so because you have enough resources to accomplish the task, no, He expects you to move knowing that He has more than enough and that He will supply all you need! But if you keep focusing on your account balance, and limit God by your account balance, you might never make a significant accomplishment. Do you understand?
I know what you were born with; I know what the doctor has said; I know what the experts have recommended; but dear sir, if you do not stagger at the promise of God in unbelief, you will be amazed by what God will do.
