What do you believe? What is the basis for your existence? Man has always looked for the “meaning of life.” Christians know, however, that the meaning of life is found in the knowledge of Jesus Christ. He came to restore men unto God. Many doubt the validity of the Bible and its message of salvation through ignorance and unbelief. Yet, Christians have to remain persuaded of the truth. This persuasion of the truth has to go beyond an initial faith in Christ, but a continual trust in His presence and ability to act for us after coming to Him.
And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform. Romans 4:21 (KJV)
It is interesting to note that many Christians are not persuaded when it comes to God’s ability and willingness to move on their behalf. We learn from the story of Abraham that though he and his wife were old, he still was of the persuasion that whatever God promised, He was able to perform.
Do you have the persuasion that counts? You must be of the persuasion that God is faithful even when we are faithless. You must be of the persuasion that God will hear and answer your prayers. You must be of the persuasion that He will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not allow past experiences to cause you to lose your faith in God. Rise up on this day and take hold of the “Persuasion that Counts.”
Prayer of the Week:
Lord, give me grace, peace, and strength to have the persuasion of Abraham. I will trust in your ability to increase my faith. Amen.”
