Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. This is what the ancients were commended for.Hebrews 11:1-2
Faith in God Devotional
This verse describes the true meaning of faith. It is the reality of exactly what we hope for. What do you hope for? Are the things you hope for things of the world, earthly things that will pass away? Or do you hope for the things of God, things that will be eternal and never end? Do you have faith that God will do what He says He will do? Do you have faith that God is who He says He is?
Faith is essential in this life. Your Christian walk cannot survive without it. It is needed to remain close to the Lord. Your faith is the evidence of what is unseen. While people cannot “see” God and his work, they can see your life. Is it a testimony to who God is? Look at the lives of the people of God throughout the history of the Bible. This verse says that through their faith, they earned a good reputation. Their lives were a testimony of who God is. We still read their stories today. When you walk in the way of the Lord and put your hope and faith in Him, your life will be a testimony for generations to come. This should not bring pressure to be “good” but a desire to live in His joy and peace knowing that your faith will produce a good reputation. So ask yourself today: are you putting your faith in God?
A Prayer to Remember
Give me the type of faith that the men of old had. The type of faith that ministers to those around me and leaves a lasting effect on the next generation. May my faith be living and active. Amen
