Fully Persuaded

Therefore, it is of faith that it might be by grace; to the end the promise might be sure to all the seed; not to that only which is of the law, but to that also which is of the faith of Abraham; who is the father of us all, (As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations,) before him whom he believed, even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were. Who against hope believed in hope, that he might become the father of many nations, according to that which was spoken, So shall thy seed be. And being not weak in faith, he considered not his own body now dead, when he was about an hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sarah’s womb: He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God; And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform. Romans 4:16-21

I am so thankful that we serve the God who is faithful to keep His promises to His children. We can put our full trust in Him that He is able to accomplish what He has promised. Sometimes what is in front of us, makes it harder to believe that the promise can come to past. It may be the pain in our bodies, the bills that need to be paid, the situations on our job, our children who are on the wrong path. But when we concentrate of the situation, our focus is in the wrong place. Whatever we are facing today, we should be challenged to put our focus on God’s word. We can focus on His word concerning healing; By His stripes we are healed. We can stand on His promise concerning our finances; My Father will supply all my needs according to His riches and Glory. We can trust Him for our children; as for me and my house we will serve the Lord.

In the passage today, Abraham was given the promise to become the Father of many Nations. Even in His old age, the Word says that He considered not His own body or the deadness of Sarah’s womb. Abraham was not focused on His situation, but “He was fully persuaded” that God would do what He had promised. We can approach our walk with the Lord being “fully persuaded”, not living in doubt or fear, but fully trusting that He is well able to do what He said what He would do. We can live fully persuaded of God’s promises to us.
