MY DAILY COVENANT WITH GOD DEVOTIONAL
Devotion for Sunday June 4, 2017
Topic: Don’t Waver in Faith
Text: Romans 4:20
To waver is to fluctuate between possibilities, to change opinion or to move in different directions. There are many things that can make us waver in faith – doubt, delay in receiving the promises and blessings of God, fear, intimidation, abuse, neglect, etc. Of a truth, everyone who comes to God expects His blessings. His blessings of favour, protection, providence, open doors, fruitfulness, etc. Delay or outright denial has led many to waver and backslide.
Abraham never doubted that God would fulfil His promise. We saw in Abraham’s life mistakes, sins, and failures as well as wisdom and goodness, but he consistently trusted God. His faith was strengthened by the obstacles he faced, and his life was an example of faith in action. He constantly looked up to God in times of challenges, obeyed him, and waited for God to fulfil His word. Abraham is known as father of faith because of what he endured before he received the promise of God.
You may be passing through hard times now. People may be asking, why you have not received the promises God made to you despite your faithfulness and commitment. You may be over 40 years and no prospective husband coming. You may have been in labour market for over 10 years and no job. You may have written Ordinary level exams for over 7 years and no success. It should not make you waver in faith. Your salvation is the most important thing. However, God is not asleep. He did it for Abraham; He will do it for you.
Food for Thought: There is no royal road to anything. That which grows fast withers as rapidly; that which grows slowly endures. – J.G. Holland
Memory verse: Romans 4 verse 20
Prayer: God, strengthen my faith amidst trials and uncertainties of life.
