Do Not Waver, April 17, 2020

As I read and reflect on Romans 4, I am amazed at various words that are used over and over again. Using the NIV version of the Scriptures, look at these words: believed or believe, faith, grace, credited, promise, guaranteed! All strong words used to let us know that the salvation that comes through Christ is not by following a strict list of rules (law) but by the righteousness CREDITED to each of us through faith in Christ!


Abraham, though old, DID NOT WAVER but believed the promise of God despite obstacles that seemed impossible to overcome. He regarded the PROMISE of God and as a result he was strengthened in his faith and gave all the glory to God. What can we glean from this today in light of all that is going on in our world.


We can stand firm in our faith. Do not waver in your belief in the promises of God. Keep your eyes fixed on Jesus who is the One who works in our lives and in the world for His glory. Hold fast to the truth of your salvation and that you are a child of God and because of that fact, your are deeply loved and cared for by your Heavenly Father. Abraham's faith was a solid faith that through the test of time endured and became stronger and stronger--so is our faith as we stand firm in the promises of God, the grace of God, and in turn give Him the glory through how we live our lives--no matter our circumstances we stand strong in Christ!

Keep standing firm!
