Day 110 ~ Romans 4~ Got faith?
I love how Paul used the story of Abraham to illustrate what having faith is all about. I particularly liked verse 21. “No unbelief made him (Abraham) waver concerning the promise of God, but he grew strong in his faith as he gave glory to God, fully convinced that God was able to do what he promised.”
Did you notice it said, he grew strong, as he gave glory to God? It doesn’t say he gave glory to God because he was so strong in his faith. It is quite opposite, in fact! His faith grew as he gave glory!
So, applying deductive reasoning….do you want more faith? Start by giving glory to God, the one who “gives life to the dead and calls into existence the things that do not exist.” (4:17)…..your faith will grow as you give him glory…
