SCRIPTURE UNION DAILY GUIDE DEVOTIONAL FOR MAY 9, 2023 (FAITH COMES TO YOU)
TOPIC: FAITH COMES TO YOU
Opening Prayer: As I read through this passage dear Lord, let your word bring transformation to my life.
Scripture: Romans 4:13-25
Question(s) for Reflection• Q 2: Is there any example for me to follow or not to follow?• Q 7: What truth is God revealing to me in this passage?
Continuing with the survey of Abraham’s life as our prototype and pattern of faith, the comparison and contrast is made between trusting in the works that we do and trusting in the works that Jesus has done.
The key to Abraham’s faith in God rather than himself was the unwavering belief that God could do the impossible and would be faithful to any promise He has made. In the same way, when we trust that God raised Jesus from the dead and will raise us from the dead to be like Him and be with Him forever, we are trusting God to do the supernatural and impossible because we trust His Word.
Read vs.13-17 again. How did Abraham receive the promises of God? Abraham demonstrated faith in God and His promises. That demonstration made him able to believe that even his barren and old wife would bear him a son (vs.18-24). Having faith in God, like Abraham, is very important for our journey of life. We also need to trust God for our future and believe that He will do as He has promised.
