Strong in faith
Almighty God and Father,
Through his faith and obedience to You, Abraham was counted as righteous. He considered that You promised he would be the father of many nations, and yet he and Sarah were both well past child bearing age. While he knew it was impossible humanly, he trusted Your ability to perform Your promise.
Forgive me when I try to take into my own hands that which You have promised to do.
May my faith be strong as Abraham’s. Even though may years passed without the promise being fulfilled, he remained faithful to You and received the promise. It was not a lack of faith when he considered just how great a miracle it would require for You to fulfill Your promise. It was great faith looking to You as completely able to perform such a great miracle.
By faith today I approach Your throne, knowing You promise to hear my prayer.
By faith today, I rest in the promise of my justification, my salvation, and my eternity.
By faith today, I will listen to Your Holy Spirit within me to guide my path, even before You show me where it will take me.
By faith today, I will take up the shield of faith with which I will be able to extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one who seeks to devour me.
By faith today, I do not loose heart as my outward body grows older and loses strength, I look by faith to the eternal things to come that will never decay.
- My faith reminds me of Your omnipotence.
- My faith reminds me the victory is won, and You prevail.
- My faith reminds me to stand firm in Your strong and mighty hand knowing You will act on my behalf.
My faith allows me to live today in fearless faith,
knowing all things are possible with You in control.
May my faith remain strong in You!
In Jesus’ name I pray,
