REVEALED WORD TODAY
// Read: Hebrews 11:1-6 //
1 Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. 2 This is what the ancients were commended for.
3 By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible.
4 By faith Abel brought God a better offering than Cain did. By faith he was commended as righteous, when God spoke well of his offerings. And by faith Abel still speaks, even though he is dead.
5 By faith Enoch was taken from this life, so that he did not experience death: “He could not be found, because God had taken him away.”[a] For before he was taken, he was commended as one who pleased God. 6 And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.
MEDITATION: The Scripture says without faith we cannot please God. The issue of faith is not optional in the journey of life. Know the following about faith and pay attention to them:
1. Have faith in God – Luke 7:50 2. You can have a little faith – Luke 12:28 3. Your faith can create effect – Mark 10:52; Luke 17:19. 4. Faith can fail – Luke 22:32 5. Confess your faith – John 12:42 6. Be full of faith – Acts 6:5 7. Faith can be visible – Matthew 9:2
PRAYER: Lord, help me to develop my faith in you.
