To be fully persuaded is to be absolutely determined, completely assured. Abraham was such as he carried out the purpose God had for him. He was convinced of God’s promises regardless of what might be required of him in the process.
For Isaac’s birth, Abraham did not consider his own body or his wife’s womb, as he was ninety-nine and she was eighty-nine years old. For the fulfillment of the reason for which Isaac was born, he had to continue to not be moved by the natural. As we walk by faith, what do we face today that we should not take into account? Our age? Strength? Finances? Looks? Or are we able to not concern ourselves with our condition, but do so with someone else’s? It could be our mate, business partner or friend. Fully persuaded, means we must also have faith for others.
Let’s be strong in faith, giving glory to God. Let’s be fully persuaded that what God has promised to us in His word, He is able to perform. His promises depend on His abilities, not on ours. Unmovable, unbothered, unaffected, unshakable, and determined, we walk from glory to glory!
Hebrews 11:17-19 By faith Abraham, when he was tested, offered up Isaac, and he who had received the promises offered up his only begotten son of whom it was said, “In Isaac your seed shall be called,” concluding that God was able to raise him up, even from the dead, from which he also received him in a figurative sense.
