Devotionals by Dr. Ed Young

February 25

Without becoming weak in faith he contemplated his own body, now as good as dead since he was about a hundred years old, and the deadness of Sarah's womb; yet, with respect to the promise of God, he did not waver in unbelief but grew strong in faith, giving glory to God, and being fully assured that what God had promised, He was able also to perform. - Romans 4:19-21

Claiming God’s promises involves what we might call the “Triple T” maneuver. Abraham demonstrates it. First, is Trust. Faith in God is resting all the weight of your hopes and dreams on Him. Time is second. Abraham trusted God to honor the promise of a son, but when nothing happened, Abraham wasn’t worried. He knew God has a special moment for the manifestation of His promises to us, tied to our Kingdom purpose and destiny. Finally is the Thrill of fulfillment of the promise, when we hold God’s promise in our hands, or hearts. Trust in God, submit to His timing, and you’ll have the thrill of manifest promise.

About Dr. Ed Young

Dr. H. Edwin Young was born in Laurel, Mississippi. He accepted Jesus Christ as his Savior at the age of 12 through the leading of his pastor's wife, Mrs. Gates.

Following graduation from high school in Laurel, Dr. Ed Young entered the University of Alabama as an engineering major. Mid-way through his freshman year, challenged by an atheist in his dorm who questioned his belief in God, he began to seek God's purpose for his life. Six months later, he surrendered to the call to preach the Gospel, and enrolled at Mississippi College to continue his education.

On June 28, 1959, he married Jo Beth Landrum. Dr. Young's preparation for the ministry continued at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest, North Carolina. His first pastorate was in North Carolina, and he pastored in North and South Carolina until 1978 when he moved to Houston, Texas. He became the pastor at Second Baptist Church where he continues to pastor today. The congregation has grown from 2,000 members in 1978 to 6 campuses and we have reached over 70 thousand members.

Dr. Young was elected president of the Southern Baptist Convention in June of 1992 and again in June, 1993. He is the author of many books including, Total Heart Health, The 10 Commandments of Parenting, and The 10 Commandments of Marriage. Dr. Young's broadcast ministry, The Winning Walk, can be seen and heard across North America and throughout the world.
