Romans 4:18-25
Against all hope, Abraham in hope believed and so became the father of many
  nations, just as it had been said to him, "So shall your offspring be."
  Without weakening in his faith, he faced the fact that his body was as good as 
  dead—since he was about a hundred years old—and that Sarah's womb was
  also dead.
Yet he did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but was
  strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God, being fully persuaded that God
  had power to do what he had promised. This is why "it was credited to him as 
  righteousness." The words "it was credited to him" were written not for him
  alone, but also for us, to whom God will credit righteousness—for us who believe
  in Him who raised Jesus our Lord from the dead. He was delivered over to death
  for our sins and was raised to life for our justification.

    I will repay you for the years the locusts have eaten—
            the great locust and the young locust, 
           the other locusts and the locust swarm.’ Joel  2:25

  You shall eat in plenty and be satisfied,
       And praise the name of the LORD your God,
       Who has dealt wondrously with you;
       And My people shall never be put to shame.
  Then you shall know that I am in the midst of Israel:
       I am the LORD your God
       And there is no other.
       My people shall never be put to shame.
  And it shall come to pass afterward
       That I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh;
       Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy,
       Your old men shall dream dreams,
       Your young men shall see visions.
