Faith

Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see. Through their faith, the people in days of old earned a good reputation.”

I have to admit that at times my faith is not as strong as it should be. Whenever I read the “faith chapter” of Hebrews 11 I marvel at how the men and women of God accomplished amazing things for him. During my quiet time this morning I prayed, “God, grant me a Hebrews 11 faith!” Planting a church requires a tremendous amount of faith and I can only pray that God would hear and honor my request because the days and weeks ahead will be difficult. But I am confident in this promise,

“All these people died still believing what God had promised them. They did not receive what was promised, but they saw it all from a distance and welcomed it…That is why God is not ashamed to be called their God, for he has prepared a city for them.”
