Topic: Be Fully Persuaded [Tuesday September 12, 2017]
“And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able to perform. And therefore it was imputed to him for righteousness.’’ (Romans 4:21-22 KJV)
Being fully persuaded simply means you have a confident assurance that God has your back covered even in the face of failure. It is a state of refusing to waver even when the evidence is on the contrary. You know in whom you have believed and you choose to stake your life on him rather than believe the evil report of the enemy.
Do you remember the story of the woman with the issue of blood? She settled it in her heart that all she needed was just a touch. That was why she was not deterred by the crowd that thronged around Jesus, neither was she slowed down by the fact that she was bleeding. What she wanted was a healing and that was what she got.
She pushed her way through the crowd and touched the hem of Jesus’ garment and that was it. That woman would never have gotten her healing if she considered the obstacles on her way. She refused to think about failure. She refused to consider how she would feel if nothing happened after touching Jesus. She even refused to think of the disciples who could have prevented her from coming close. All she ever thought of was her healing. She was fully persuaded.
As a child of God, always remember that your victory is already assured because you are in Christ. You are seated in heavenly places, and that means that whatever cannot touch Christ cannot touch you. You may not have seen the manifestation of what you desire yet, but remain fully persuaded that it will surely come to pass. You will not be denied in Jesus name.
