Being fully persuaded that God had power to do what he had promised.  Romans 4:21

Today is our final day looking at the faith of Abraham.  God told Abraham he would be a ‘father of many nations’ but he had no children, was 100 years old and Sarah was infertile.  Abraham did not allow his faith to be weakened by focusing on these contradictory circumstances, instead he grew strong in faith by refusing to doubt and giving glory to God for the promise.  This resulted in Abraham being fully persuaded that God had the power to do what he said He would do.

God has never changed, He still has the power to fulfil His promises to you.

Today, as we look at our own walk of faith, where are we on the fully persuaded scale?  Have we forgotten the promises that He has spoken to us?  Have we accepted the status quo of our circumstances?  Have the storms of life left us battered, bruised, tired, hopeless and faithless?  Let's not forgot there is no condemnation for those in Christ, just a gentle nudging of the Holy Spirit to encourage us to put our trust and faith in Him alone.

Remember where we started with the faith of Abraham – God’s promise given in grace and received by faith.  There is nothing you can do to deserve or earn God’s promises, just believe and you will receive.
