My faith and Your faith.
This is the conclusion of this supposedly three part series. I have been speaking about faith and i have tried to define it. I have also spoken about how faith is to be used effectively. Then in my last post i have been speaking about faith in the context of destiny.
So like i said, this is the conclusion of faith in context of our dreams and purpose.
To accomplish your purpose you need faith. I shared Romans 4:16 which said that inheriting our calling is the outcome of faith and depends entirely on faith. As you can see, faith is important.
Once we have decided to trust God we need to hold on. We cannot let anything deter us. Romans 4:18 says:
[For Abraham, human reason for] hope being gone, hoped in faith that he should become the father of many nations, as he had been promised, So [numberless] shall your descendants be.
He did not weaken in faith when he considered the [utter] impotence of his own body, which was as good as dead because he was about a hundred years old, or [when he considered] the barrenness of Sarah’s [deadened] womb.
No unbelief or distrust made him waver (doubtingly question) concerning the promise of God, but he grew strong and was empowered by faith as he gave praise and glory to God,
Fully satisfied and assured that God was able and mighty to keep His word and to do what He had promised.
That is why his faith was credited to him as righteousness (right standing with God).
Romans 4:18-22. (Amp)
In this passage of scripture we see the power of faith. Abraham had faith in God despite his current circumstances. It didn’t matter that he was a hundred years old or that Sarah was way past the age for having children. He just held on to God’s word. He did not let unbelief or distrust alter his decision.
When you make a decision to trust God you will have doubts and fears but learn from Abraham. Don’t let those things influence your decision making. Instead, look to God.
He had not seen the promise yet but the word says, he was fully satisfied and assured that God was able and mighty to do what He had promised.
It was because of faith that he recieved his promise. It will be because of our faith in God that we will accomplish our destiny.
And with that i end my series on faith. I hope you have seen the importance of faith in your life? I hope you have been challenged as well. God bless.
