The Table Campaign, 35 Day Devotional
Jerri Gapastione, NEXT Team Member and TWV Runner
We all have hopes and dreams for our lives, some of which we can impact and some we must leave entirely up to God. For many of us it’s not easy to trust in God’s timing or His response. Just as young children have a hard time waiting for something they want, as God’s children, we can doubt whether God’s promises will come to fruition.
Abraham and his wife Sarah, who had been promised children by God, were still childless at 99 and 90 years old. God made a commitment to them and He fulfilled it (even at their advanced ages) with their son, Isaac.
Hopefully, God does not make us wait quite so long, but do you believe God’s commitments for your life? Are you willing to keep living a life that reflects Jesus, even when it seems God has forgotten you by not answering your prayers in the manner and timing you hoped?
Read Galatians 6:9.
After God brought Isaac into Abraham’s life, He asked Abraham to sacrifice his son. Abraham had such faith in God, he was willing to sacrifice Isaac. God may ask us to make hard choices, like making a financial offering that seems outrageous, or do incredible things, like running a marathon.
Are you committed to living a life that fulfills God’s wishes (His Word), even when it is difficult or inconvenient? What sacrifices have you made or works have you done for the sake of God’s kingdom?
I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.
2 Timothy 4:7
