Fast Day Sixteen

Being fully persuaded that God had power to do what he had promised
– Romans 4:21

“B E I N G   F U L L Y   P E R S U A D E D”

I have read this scripture so many times before and focused on the portion that talks about Gods part “God had the power to do what he had promised”. When reading this scripture now, I focused on our part “Being fully persuaded”. I believe that is where the miracle lies. So many times we are waiting for God to do something and God is waiting for us to really believe it.

It is easy to get stuck in a place where we are just waiting on God because then the responsibility is His not ours. We need to do our part and then I believe there is very little waiting and much more receiving and walking in His promises. We get fully persuaded when we fill ourselves with the word and spend time with God. When we are full it is easu to trust God. When we are empty or running it is difficult.
