Romans 4:21 – God Is Able

Context: Paul explains that Abraham’s righteousness was attained through faith and not works.  He believed in God’s promises and was…

Romans 4:21 – “…fully convinced that God was able to do what He had promised.”
Observations:

  • Fully convinced (ESV) – being fully persuaded (NIV)
  • That God was (and is!) able
  • To do what He had promised – Most of the time, we now receive these promises through scripture.

Application:  I want to have the confidence and faith of Abraham.  Today I will look for promises that God has given me and ask myself if I am living convinced that He is able to do them.

Do you believe God is able to do what He has promised?  Do your actions back this up?
