Today’s Reading | Romans 4:16-23
How would you describe your faith? On a scale of 1–10, 1 being no faith and 10 being never any doubt, how would you rate it? Today, we read an impressive statement about Abraham’s faith. Verse 21 tells us that Abraham was, “fully persuaded that God had the power to do what He had promised.” God said it, and Abraham simply believed God would do what He had said. Abraham was a 10. He did not doubt or wonder if what God said was true. He did not build into his life something to fall back on in case God’s plan didn’t work out. He just believed God. We can’t help but be impressed with a faith that demanded he leave home and go to a land that God would show him, believe God would give him a child in his old age and then be willing to sacrifice that only child. How does your faith compare to Abraham’s? How does your level of faith show up in your daily living? It is sobering to realize that without faith, it is impossible to please God. What would it take for you to become a person of great faith? What can you do today to begin the process of seeing your faith grow? Why not find someone who can help you take those first steps of growth.
