NOT SO SURE
Faith is a powerful force that transcends the present and reaches the future. In Hebrews 11:1-6, we learn that faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. It’s not about what we see in the immediate moment but what we trust will come to pass.
Consider the story of Moses in Exodus 2:1-10. At what point did the miracle begin? It started long before Moses was placed in the basket in the river. It began with his mother’s faith when she hid him and trusted God’s plan. God often works behind the scenes, and sometimes, like Moses’ mother, we must trust in His unseen hand guiding our lives.
God won’t force His calling upon us or fight us for it. Are we pursuing His blessings more than His presence? How many opportunities do we miss because we lack a clear view of the future?
Faith isn’t limited to the personal; it extends to the cosmic. By faith, we believe that God created the universe. Just as in Hebrews 11, faith also played a role in Abel’s offering in Genesis. His faith was evident in his sacrifice, which pleased God.
Romans 6:23 reminds us of the gift of God, eternal life through Jesus Christ. Our faith in Christ secures our earthly blessings and the ultimate blessing of eternal life.
In our journey of faith, let’s remember that faith is not about instant gratification; it’s about trusting in God’s plan for our future, even when we can’t see it clearly. Like the heroes of faith in Hebrews 11, let’s offer our lives as living testimonies of our trust in the unseen and unwavering faith in God’s promises.
