4:17 As it is written, I have made you the father of many nations. [He was appointed our father] in the sight of God in Whom he believed, Who gives life to the dead and speaks of the nonexistent things that [He has foretold and promised] as if they [already] existed.

GOD's promises to Abraham was fulfilled thru Isaac, though Abraham is an old man and impotent. These limited physical features of Abraham did not hindered GOD's promises because GOD's promises can't be hindered by physical limitation of men. With men this is impossible but with GOD all things are possible.

IX. CONCLUSION:

Romans 4:19 (Amplified Bible)

Matthew 17:20 (Amplified Bible)

17:20 He said to them, Because of the littleness of your faith [that is, your lack of firmly relying trust]. For truly I say to you, if you have faith [that is living] like a grain of mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, Move from here to yonder place, and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you.

Jeremiah 32:17 (Amplified Bible)

32:17 Alas, Lord God! Behold, You have made the heavens and the earth by Your great power and by Your outstretched arm! There is nothing too hard or too wonderful for You—
