Dependence
Abraham believed the promise “that he would become the father of many nations” (Right belief)

Abraham also was “fully convinced that God was able to do what He had promised” (Complete Dependence)
Romans 4:18-25

Did Not Doubt Because of Unbelief
Abraham's confidence was based in the power of God and not his own abilities
Hebrews 11:1-3
2 Corinthians 4
Acts 16:16-40
vs. 19-21
A focus on observable reality as though this is the only reality.

A lack of confidence in the character of God.

A belief that our timetable is the timetable of God.

A belief that depth of our pain is a result of the failure of the power of God to deliver us from pain.
